Sky Go and Sky Sports F1

[ Edited ]
Hi guys, As a massive F1 fan I've committed to Sky to follow the entire season. However, I have no intention of getting a TV subscription with Sky. The only route I can see is if I purchase a Sky Go monthly ticket. My only concern is this - will I gain access to the new F1 channel if I purchase the Sports ticket? I'm worried I won't be getting the channel as it isn't listed in the Sports package. Kind regards.

Re: Sky Go and Sky Sports F1

Not sure on this but let me explain something to you because I had the same issue and chose to get a full sky subscription.

 

I thought about getting the monthly ticket which would cost £35 per month which should include the F1 channel (This needs to be confirmed). However the cheapest option is just to get sky sports entertainment pack with the HD channels installed in your home for just £30.25 per month. This way you get F1 in HD plus the access to sky go for free plus you get the sky box and installation and everything else for free. This is a bargain! 

 

You must however be committed to this deal for the minimum of 12 months.

 

Someone correct me if I am wrong but this is what I have done. I am just not sure if the F1 HD channel is available through sky go as go only display in standard definition I'm not sure the hd channel is available to the HD subscriber only through sky go.

You will get access to the F1 channel on Sky Go because you will have access to the F1 channel as a HD subscriber if this is what you are asking.

Re: Sky Go and Sky Sports F1

It is going to be available via Sky Go so I would have thought it would be available via the monthly ticket.

Apologies as this is my first post in this forum but i'd like to know if these threads are frequented by any official Sky staff?

 

I ask this question to try and establish a definitive answer in regards to whether the F1 channel will be included with the Skygo monthly ticket? So far I only hear conjecture in these forums and there is no information on the website.  

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi S2M+Coblet, 

 

As you have recently joined the forum, I would like to welcome you to our community :smileyhappy:

 

I can confirm that if you have the SkyGo Monthly Ticket and you have Sport, will be able to watch F1™ on SkyGo. 

 

Thanks,

I am a Sky HD customer, I use sky go on the laptop when im outside of the living room.

I want to know as I get F1 as part of my HD package, will I get F1 on Sky Go or does it form part of the Sports Pack on there rather than the entertainment pack?

I currently get the promo showing but I gather this will switch off when the channel launches for real later

Re: Sky Go and Sky Sports F1

Hi CHRISA1981,

 

Thanks for bringing your query to the forum!

 

Sky Go mirrors your TV package, so as you get the F1™ channel as part of your TV subscription, you will also get this through SkyGo.

 

I hope this information has helped.


Thanks,

Re: Sky Go and Sky Sports F1

It is there on the PC and Andriod versions for me. What are you viewing Sky Go on ?
