Sky Sports are set to run a dedicated Formula One channel next season which will be available to Freeview customers for a monthly fee.No word though if it will be available in HD or if you need to subscribe to Sky Sports to get it. Full details are expected from Sky in December.
In a move aimed at appeasing frustrated British F1 fans following the unprecedented switch from terrestrial to pay-TV, I’m told that Sky will operate the package at a cost thought to be around £10-a-month.
The new channel will be included free of charge in Sky and Virgin Media packages. The new channel is set to run for three days over the course of a race weekend. The service will include live coverage of all three practice sessions as well as qualifying and the race – and it will also host an F1 legends programme.
