New Sky Sports F1 channel, will it be availible on Virginmedia

 

I'm a big fan of Formula 1 racing and I was wondering does anybody know whether Virginmedia will have this new Sky Sports F1 channel in March next year, as I don't really want to switch to Sky.

 

Will it be included in a Sports Package or will it be a Standalone Channel. Also any idea's on the price per month of it

This has now been announced that it will be available on Virgin http://mediacentre.virginmedia.com/Stories/Formula-1-fans-on-pole-with-Virgin-Media-and-Sky-Sports-F...

 

It is not clear whether it is HD or not. You do need to have the Sky Sports tier. This differs from Sky themselves where to get it you must be a sports subscriber and/or an HD subscriber.

So you will need the "Sky Sports Collection" which is: Sky Sports 1 , Sky Sports 2 , Sky Sports 3 and Sky Sports 4 to be able to get the New Formula 1 channel?

Thats just stupid so I should pay for load of channels I dont want just to watch the one I do? I think ill pass, anyone that pays for that just for F1 has more money than than brain cells thats for sure.
