Sky open up Sky Sports F1 to all Sky and Virgin Media customers next weekend for free

Sky Sports this morning have announced that all of their channels, including Sky Sports F1, will be available to all Sky and Virgin Media customers next weekend for free.

From 06:00 on Friday 20th July to 23:59 on Sunday 22nd July, if you are with Sky or Virgin Media, you can watch Sky Sports F1 irrespective of what subscription package you have. Therefore, anyone next weekend (assuming you have Sky or Virgin of course!) can watch the German Grand Prix live on Sky Sports F1. For everyone concerned, this is great news as it allows more people to sample Sky Sports F1’s programming.

This also includes Sky Sports 1 through to Sky Sports 4, meaning anyone with Sky or Virgin can watch the Indy Car Series live next Sunday from 19:00 on Sky Sports 4.

The full Sky Sports F1 schedule for next weekend is available here.

  1. Is this open to Sky customers who do not subscribe to a package anymore? I.e. those who use Sky as a freesat box?

    Usually these promotions aren’t open to such customers which will limit the exposure of F1 to the wider audience, as everyone with the HD pack (which has to be most customers now) can already watch the F1 channel.

    • Good question. For the reason you mention, I assume no, however I maybe wrong. It’s definitely worth contacting Sky though about it to find out. Their article does not mention Freesat anywhere, but if you are classified as “Sky customers”, then who knows.
