    The illegal streams are inundated with ads and pop-ups. They're pretty awful to watch to be fair and some of them are just laptops with camera facing a TV showing the matches / races.

    All Premiership matches are televised and shown free in many other countries in Far East and USA I believe.

    Premiership football is a cheap as chips in the US via cable.....no real demand for it whereas here we now have BT & Sky bidding against each other.

    Cancel your Sky Sports and move to Plusnet. If everyone did it, it would be free within 2 years....

    Isn't Plusnet cable TV ? Out in the sticks we don't have that option

    I have Sky & BT but they only show a handful of games per week.

    Not sure about that! It's usually somebody feeding their own Sky feed to a web server streaming service

    Plusnet's a broadband provider which just happens to be "owned" by BT

    Yes there are legal streams it's just that they're only broadcast to other countries, the pirates are streaming footie from Norway, the middle east etc. so not only do you get free footie you can also learn a foreign language although I'm not sure that the chant "the referees a w****r" in Norwegian is going to help with a visit to Oslo

    It's no different whatsoever. You aren't paying for a service that you are using. Quit trying to justify it by boohooing about the evil capitalist oppressors

    If people stop watching it, maybe F1 will burn itself out and an alternative formula might spring up taking everything back to its roots...who knows.

    It's completely different - who has complete monopoly over music & film ?? No one - you can buy, stream or download it from a huge amount of companies and that is apparent by the low prices now - this thread is about Sky having the full viewing rights to F1, which is wrong.

    I'm not actually streaming F1 as you say - I'm just pointing out that I would consider it if Sky get full coverage and then abuse this with outrageous charges.

    I ditched my Freesat Linux box yesterday. Gave it to a colleague/pal at work. In exchange he put Kodi on my Firestick (which I have bought purely for Prime when Clarkson and co air).
    I noticed a stream for F1. I saw Damon Hill on a talk show for about 40 seconds then he went into suspended animation
