      Sky and 2012 F1 coverage

      Have sky announced their plans for Formula one for next year yet?

      Particularly anything for petrol heads who dont want a full Sports subscription as they're not interested in football.

      You can be sure it will be part of the Sports package.

      I don't see it, they don't even offer a football or golf only option, which would be attractive to many. If you want one sport you have to pay for the lot

      I've heard that it may well be a paid event as BBC is showing 1/2 of the races and cos sky have not got them all.

      Assuming that you actually pay for the licence fee, why not show them the receipts for last years?

      If they complain, just say that you're repeating last year's payments.

      It is your much loved Conservatives who have forced them to do this with their draconian cuts

      I am pretty sure your mum will be paying the license anyway.

      Nice 1 Scubbie not thought of that my is due next month I'm going to give it a go lol.
      Isitme,
      correct they are also trying to remove the golden sports law about what has to be free to air so all sports will be pay per view. But they have come up against a few problems with it as Scotland & Wales have a language act that means programmes have to be in welsh and Gaelic (not sure about Ireland) which have English people upset
