But can you be a true fan if you don't pay to make sure you catch every bit of action? Highlights don't give the whole picture.
Having upgraded my sky package I have to say I am very impressed with their coverage already, and the season hasn't even started yet. I am getting to watch things never seen before; testing, car unveiling.
There are reviews of classic seasons and interviews with drivers, current and legendary. The 2011 season review has shown footage you wouldn't normally get to see. The BBC just don't have the airtime to show all of this.
Martin Brundle recognised what Sky had to offer the fans when he decided to move, and now I understand why he made that decision.
