Petition Action

Sky's exclusivity to broadcast all Formula 1 races

Additional Information

This petition is raised to request a parliamentary debate on Formula 1 and the recent agreement that BSkyB will have exclusivity to ALL rounds of the championship, whereas the BBC will have to concede with only being able to show a percentage of the championship rounds live.

This effectively makes Formula 1 a subscription based TV event, whereas this should be a Free-to-Air TV event.

Such sporting events should be protected and prevented from being exclusively purchased by subscription TV providers and remain free to view to the watching populous.
