i assume that is the household fee for the year?

obviously a difference in currencies, but a cable subscription here with the sports tiers is about CAN$100/m which i think works out to about 700 a year.

i dont know if that comparable or not to what you guys would have to pay for a similar bundle of channels?

It makes no difference to the organisers.
The fans are losing out because if they haven't got access to Sky, they can't see the races live on TV.
The TV viewers - see the answer above.
The teams are losing out sponsorship-wise as less people are seeing the mobile advertising hoardings whizzing around the track - also see the answer above.
The sport as a whole is also losing out as there is less chance of a casual TV viewer being converted into an enthusiast - see answers above.

To the best of my knowledge, F1 broadcasting is a loss leader to SKY, and worse for them is that the UK audience via SKY is falling month on month.

The winners, by far, were the Ecclestone family and the teams who all shared the proceeds from the sale of the contract to SKY. That money may still be trickling down to them all.

Yeah per household and yes that is approx 700 per year. Frankly not worth it.

A summary of the 2019 costs to watch F1 in the UK can be found here.

In short, every method requires a TV Licence at a cost of 154.50, which was the case when F1 was broadcast as FTA.

On top of this, the cheapest way to watch every F1 race in the UK was a further 76.93 for the season if using a mobile device, 179.80 on a TV, or 404 if you don't have an internet connection.

It needs to be borne in mind that whilst F1 was FTA, especially during the halcyon BBC days, that the UK's audience was by far the largest in the world. I do not think that that is the case any more.

well not much enjoys the same audience size it used to...free or PayTV there is so much more content and competition for eyeballs today then there was back in the day.

if people had as much choice as they do today back then, then F1's historical audience would have been smaller.
