    1TB HD box ordered - tip: Go via Quidco link and you'll get £50 cashback to cover the cost of the 1TB box - making it a £15 purchase for the self installation cost...Sky, the robbong sods!

    Been a F1 Fan for 40 years.. unfortunately Bernie has decided i cant watch all of it so i will not bother at all. Seems he needs the cash so only the well off can watch now. Seriously though i hope the viewing figures are **** so the BBC get it back where it belongs.

    I remember they did this too Bikes a few years back. You had to buy Sky sport, then they moved it to Euro sport 3 and then to euro sport 2 then 1 and so on so to watch the season you had to subscribe to 3 or 4 channels.....it ended up back on BBC because everyone got pissed off and gave up with it. I hate and loathe Sky for the damage its done to national TV and i would not subscribe to it on principle. If every one felt the same we would have F1 for Free back on BBC with out adverts.

    Yawn...We knew it was going to happen a long time ago. 99% of people have got over it and sought other ways to watch it. Stop moaning about it. If you really are a "True fan" then you would find other ways to watch it like 99% of peole have.

    Anyways.....

    That is an rc system, it's for when Alonso and Massa get bored of following RB and Mclaren, they let the mechanics play.

    Have you seen the Ferrari F1 website, 'Discover the winners'. What have they won recently?

    I didnt insult you so kinda proves my point to your mentality bro. If you don't like seeking other ways to watch the sport then post in another thread maybe?

    The arm chair supporters will be here once the season starts newbie. Maybe look over last years thread to see it "Bro"

    Somone should start a new thread called "moaning about paying to see F1 / Cant be bothered to seek free option but im a true fan" im sure you will be the top poster...:moa:

    So where does buying a sat dish and getting installed and a decoder etc fit in with not paying anything.
    Fact is mate people who start a reply with "Yawn" accuse someone with a differing opinion to yours as " moaning" and cast doubt on whether that are a fan by putting "true fan" in inverted commas needs to learn some manners.
    If you want to line Bernie's pockets thats up to you, he got stinking rich by tapping into mugs like you but don't expect me or many thousands of F! fans to join you on principle.

    Who said owt about buy a sat dish / decoder and paying for it? I posted links to watch it FREE when the season starts and i said would post more FREE steams when available.
    Hope you enjoy your "principles" when everyone else is watching F1 for FREE.....

    Paddy, you'll go around in circles mate - he's still not sought the education I told him he needed 'moons' ago, like arguing with the cast of 'One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest'

    I'm afraid I used the Sky excuse to buy a 1TB HD box, although i fully agree vote with your feet - Just people don't stick together like they used to and I need my F1 fix :)

    Well I e been keeping an eye on testing and it seems Ferrari are not having the best time right now, where has it gone wrong for forza Italia lately. Good to see a few more cars are up to scratch this year so hope a good midfield battle is on the cards.

    Hopefully I'll either have HD in a few days as I already have sky and Plan on tellin them I'm quitting unless I get a free box.

    Roll on Melbourne

    The free box isn't a problem, it's the £10 a month they charge you to recieve the non FTA HD channels.

    Another option is to pop to B&Q and they are selling a FTA sat system for £50, align it to 19.2E and turn the volume down unless you are fluent in German. Probably what i will do, then listen to it on the radio.

    im not paying extra to watch it.
    i know there are ways to watch it free but why should we have to go for the "get around" option?

    im not watching it on general principle because its on sky. if that makes me "not a true fan" then so be it.

    It's a shame as old TV's obviously cost a lot at the time, but pretty much worth nothing a year after.... I'm going to be replacing my 40" LCD soon, won't be worth anything you can bet with it being 1080i! spare room or charity shop :D
