Sky Go appalling F1 catch up service.

Hi, why does sky go not allow us to watch catch ups/on demand F1 sessions?  Missed the qualifying live as was staying away in UK. Had a free couple of hours so I thought I would catch up.

Only allowed to download to my sky box!! WTH?  There was no way to watch it on the go.

My colleague had a fire stick he paid £80 for the year! (I'm paying £150 a month!), and we watched the sky qualifying on that on demand.

Why on earth are the illegal streams providing a better service to the content than us legitimately trying to support the sports?

Sat there glad to watch the qualifying but also extremely furious that £1800 a year to sky is shown up by a dude with a hooked fire stick!

With the Sky Go ap even though the content could well be there it doesn't mean that it can be watched via the app itself which is what appears to have happened in this case and the usual reason for this is due to right restrictions.

Presumably because, being provided by criminals, they aren't restricted by petty legalities associated with distribution rights for particular content.

Understood, but my god it makes Sky look like the criminals.  Taking an enormous amount of money and not giving us access to the content on demand.

Can't understand why you say that the Sky Go F1 catch up service is appalling based on one Qualifying race only available to download and not watch on demand

If you missed the scheduled race wasn't it available to watch later on via the Sky Go app

 

Not sure what the issue is seeing as you can Remote Download to the Sky Q box via Sky Go but each too their own I guess.
