My wife and I have been tossing around the idea of canceling our DirecTV subscription. We've found work arounds for just about everything we like to watch through a combination of streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, an HD digital antenna, and various apps through her iPhone and my Android phone - everything except F1 qualifying and races. And that's the one thing I record and watch religiously these days.
I've found that practice, qualifying, and races are not easily accessible outside of the cable broadcasts, BBC has it locked down pretty tight. Being in the US, watching live streaming isn't always a realistic option, and with little ones in the house, I find myself watching the broadcasts a day or so later after the girls go to bed when I have free time. Looks like I don't have very many options available to do this without a cable subscription. I did find this one article that looks promising but I couldn't contact the author to ask questions:
If BBC has qualifying and the race available for download for a few days after the fact on their site I would be good to go. But the author says it's only available in Europe. Is that true? Any idea if his technique of getting a VPN with the server located in Europe and then signing up for an iPlayer account will actually do the trick? Is there an easier way? If not I'm completely willing to try it out.
Anyone have any other proven (legit) methods to be able to watch recorded races and qualifying sessions that don't include bit torrents?
Thanks in advance.
