BBC to lose F1 Coverage Early?

Recommended Posts

Looks like the BBC are going to pull out of what's left of their BBC deal early, though Bernie has stated they're unable to contractually yet...

Even though I finally gave in and bought Sky, the BBC's coverage was one of the things that drew me back to F1 after not watching for a few years, not convinced that ITV will be able to carry on that quality based on their track record (excuse the pun).

It will be a shame if the BBC does have to drop it but understandable if they need to save money. I would rather lose the F1 and retain news, drama and local radio than giving cash to that little [not allowed to swear]

I won't pay to watch it on Sky, what they charge for sports coverage is too much. If that means I don't get to watch it, so be it. The good feeling the England cricket team had after winning the Ashes in 2005 has been lost since they sold their souls to Murdoch. F1 will lose support in the UK if it doesn't have at least some terrestrial rights.

      Me and a mate are attending the Cardiff CS:GO qualifiers. Looking to join a team that needs 2 x mercs.

      epic24 seems so long ago and I haven't been back since. Having taken the 3v3 Rocket League tournament, I'm hungry for more.
       
      And so...
       
      I have plans to return to epic27 with a new team behind me! I am incredibly excited as epic24 was my first taste of a LAN and I loved every minute of it. It's completely worth the 700 miles round trip and I'm ready to do it all over again!
