Formula One streaming service now live

11 May 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

The Formula One streaming service, F1 TV, is now live in the US, Europe, and other regions, just in time for the Spanish Grand Prix.

F1 TV is live

F1 TV will stream every single live race without commercials. The standard ‘F1 TV Access’ plan gives you access to replays, highlights, and behind-the-scenes content, whereas the full ‘F1 TV Pro’ gives you access to live races, including onboard cameras and live leaderboard.

- “All of practice, qualifying and races, will be offered live, along with press conferences and pre and post-race interviews. Subscribers will be able to watch live races of the main support series, the FIA Formula 2 Championship, GP3 Series and Porsche Supercup, among others.”

The stand-alone Formula One streaming service was announced last year, detailed earlier this year, and is now live just in time for the Spanish Grand Prix that kicks off May 11. The ‘F1 TV Pro’ subscription plan with access to live races is not yet available in all regions due to existing licensing deals that will expire over the coming years. It is live in the US where it costs $12 per month (90$ per year) and many parts of Europe where is typically costs €8 per month (€58.5 per year).

At the moment, you can watch races on desktop browsers only. Apps for Apple TV, Android TV, FireTV and tablet, iOS, and Android are “coming soon”.

- “Nobody has ever attempted to build an experience this all-encompassing, with this many live streams, on such a global scale,” the company said.

Going direct to consumers, or over the top (OTT), is an increasing trend across the industry. Pioneered by Netflix, the concept is now reaching sports leagues. MotoGP already offers a streaming service and Spain’s LaLiga has announced plans to launch a standalone streaming service.
