Re: Can I get Sky Sports F1 on Virgin TV?

Yes you can, but not as a stand-alone channel. You have to take at least the minimum TV pack, plus all 8 Sky Sports channels. If you want these channels in HD there is also a supplemental charge.

Virgin BB TV Landline. Freeview/Freesat HD, Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile. Cable customer since 1993

Re: Can I get Sky Sports F1 on Virgin TV?

You can take any of the standard TV packs shown on VMs website & then add the SkySports Premium pack to it. So it’s a question of looking at what is available.

I have the Bigger Oomph bundle + Sports which includes the Sky Sports HD pack, but I think that you have to pay the extra £7pm for the HD version of the Sky Sports channels with the cheaper bundles.

Re: Can I get Sky Sports F1 on Virgin TV?

It isn't clear on the website, if you select the bundles and the channel list it does not include a list of the Sky Sports channels but does have the Sky Sports logo at the top of the screen. It does list the Sky Movie channels though.

I am looking to return to full Virgin, I only have BB at the moment but want to get 500mb, so I need the ultimate oomph bundle but it must have F1 for me to consider it.

F1 in HD is certainly included on channel 506. Of course we've seen nothing so far in 2020.

A sports fan has to stump up the money to watch the races live, I want to see the akshun as it takes place not the highlights hours later on Channel 4.

Re: Can I get Sky Sports F1 on Virgin TV?

This is a list of all the channels and packages. 

https://www.virginmedia.com/content/dam/virginmedia/dotcom/documents/Redwood/ChannelGuide_June_11_20...

The Big package on this list is Player.

The Bigger package is Full House 

The Ultimate Oomph package has all the channels in column 6, plus all the Sky Sports (including F1)and Sky Movie channels in HD

You would need to check if 500mb is available in your area.

There is talk about the broadband on the Ultimate Oomph package being regraded to 600mb at the end of July.

 The same article says Virgin will also start selling the 500mb as a standalone from that date.
