Content on DStv Mobile

Why is there no Formula 1 coverage on Mobile?
DStv Mobile plays out the same footage as the SS Blitz, SS1, SS2, SS3 and SS4 - if a program is not broadcast on these channels it cannot be shown on Mobile.

Why is the M-Net Series channel not an exact replica of M-Net Series on DStv at home?
The mobile version of the channel is largely the same as the satellite channel, but where licenses have not been granted for certain programmes, a substitute programme is aired.
