    Default Live F1 Coverage NZ 2019

    Less than 5 weeks until the season opener in Melbourne and we still don't know how, when and if we will be able to watch live coverage..................

    What the hell game is SPARK playing?

    My guess would be the money making game.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Same thought I'm having about the RWC later in the year. Not liking this new arrangement.

    I missed something here ... what has Spark got to do with it, and what is the "new arrangement". Serious question guys, can you fill me in?

    Sky has lost the hosting rights for several sports.

    They were out bid by SPARK

    Thanks Zippity, I didn't know that. I will probably watch the RWC on ESPN if I can - as I did with the Bledisloe and the northern games.

    Now there's something I hadn't thought of. That requires further investigation closer to the time.

    The Rugby Union didn't give Sky the rights to the US, hence ESPN carried it. It cost me only US$7 a month to subscribe. The only problem I found was that every 10 minutes or so the connection was lost. It only took about 20-30 seconds to get the signal again, but fate being what it is, I got to miss some crucial play or match decider during that time. But still better than paying Sky $37 a match or waiting for Prime
