Firstly, I don't think that Fox will be permitted to buy the remaining parts of Sky that the Murdochs don't already own because of plurality issues, etc.

But secondly, one has to remember that the Disney Corp have already started negotiations to purchase 21CF in it's entirety, not just Sky. My own view is that the only winners will be the Murdoch family who will undoubtedly be able to push the bidding price upwards.

one of the reasons i like an F1 owned and operated OTT services as it operates outside of this media empire conglomeration.

down side is that if Liberty's OTT service is successful they will probably look to spin off and sell up to one of these same conglomerates in the future.

Standalone subscriptions are great for hardcore fans, and F1 has millions of them. But F1 also has a long tail of casual fans, and they can only be reached by air and basic cable TV.

Another big question about this new F1 channel, who will be the presenters and commentary teams?

I know this is a serious question, but I also see this as a softball pitch for those who want to toss out the most ridiculous options!

One thing you can almost guarantee is that Murdoch has all bases covered to maximize his return be it a gain in money or a gain in power. Mostly he seems to prefer POWER!

The F1 subscription packages look to be just the thing I have been looking forward to, but doesn't seem to be destined for Australia. Maybe our disastrous NBN roll out makes in non viable through lack of band width.

I don't know if Sky publish the number of subscribers for their F1 platform, but their audience number peaked at the Mexican GP last year at 1.09 million. However, that audience was still only about a third of the total between Channel 4 and themselves.

Very interesting. I think that number would increase drastically if fans had access to a stand alone subscription service instead of having to sign a lengthy contract and buy a box with a list of channels that one has no interest in. I fear that sky has already got this signed up.

not sure about anyone else but if it was available in the uk i'd be on it straight away, especially if it does indeed work out at the same price as a 7 day pass for nowtv. and i don't even watch f1 that much. i'd be happy to give my money straight to f1 but get very stroppy about giving it to sky purely on principle.

Yep, I think that if it comes to the UK it will be as an additional sub ontop of Sky TV coverage, as they paid for the exclusive live coverage rights.
