Apologies to Finnon for nicking his title..

I'm backing Hamilton for another World Championship this year..

BTW I know the race is over ; don't tell me the result as I'm watching the highlights on Channel 4 later..

Get yourself an android box if you don't fancy a sky sub.
A decent broadband speed get you all channels,movies etc for a one off 40 quid.

Funny you should say that.. I've already got an android box... Use it for watching films and hadn't considered using it for watching TV; I hate Sky with such a vengeance that I wouldn't watch it even for free..

I'm with you wine~o - hate Sky and won't ever pay a subscription to them so stuck with Ch4 for my coverage (I can get it live on various online feeds but the quality leaves a lot to be desired).

Alonso was SOOOOOO lucky to walk away from that crash though :shock: spectacular would be an understatement!

Pretty decent result all round though - Hamilton lost it at the start and did well to get 2nd.

There was soooo little left of Alonso's car it was smaller than my armchair..

And yep Hamilton lost it with a poor start..

The android boxes need a decent speed broadband tbh. But you can watch films just out at the cinema and for you f1 buffs then sky's coverage is by far the best.
If you hate sky think of it as stealing from Rupert Murdoch by using the box :lol:

You need to be aware that you really need to spend some time updating/installing/updating stuff on these boxes..

As an aside

I think Channel 4 did an excellent job of their first F1 broadcast.. hats off to them; as good as BBC and better than ITV (Channel 3) when they had the rights.. Nice to see Murray Walker back as well, even if it was a pastiche... :thumbleft:
