    Sky confirms F1 iPad app with 'four-way' multiscreen viewing | T3


    I knew they were going to throw lots of money into tech. This is what the EPL should be doing.

    Hat's off to Sky. That's why I've supported them since the start.

    Not during the race though.

    I don't get that argument. I've never seen you complain because there are adverts during half time of a match, or before, or even after.

    I was quite happy that Sky had taken over F1 until I lost my job last month and had to cancel Sky as I can't afford it any more. Now I'll only get to see half the races. :(
    Sky do a great job with any sports they show, they invest decent money into it and it sounds like they're going all out to get the best coverage possible.

    when ITV used to have coverage they would put adverts through the race at places when it wasn't very interesting, I have no qualms about adverts at half time etc but F1 races are 1-2hours long and Sky Sports will need to put adverts somewhere and there's no halftime in F1

    Sky Sports F1 have constantly and categorically said that they will not be like ITV ever since they announced they had the deal. They will not show a single advert during the race.

    From Sky Sports website (back at start Dec):

    And from earlier this month:

    Don't forget channels can use product placement nowadays. So we may see a bit more of that creeping in!

    Looking forward to this, I believe the channel launches on the 6th march...I am hoping for 3D soon as well. 3D cockpit view will be amazing
