F1 TV to launch at Spanish Grand Prix


Formula 1 will launch its subscription video service at the Spanish Grand Prix, with beta tests taking place at this weekend’s Chinese and the following Azerbaijan Grands Prix.

As previously reported, F1 TV will have two different price points. The premium tier, F1 TV Pro, will feature live races, cameras on all 20 drivers, side-by-side views and exclusive content with all sessions, press conference and post-race interviews included. Later in the season, Formula 2, GP3 and Porsche Supercup will be also be added.

The subscription service will launch on desktop before Apple, Android and Amazon Fire mobile and tablet devices, with those on smart TV devices getting access after that.

It will be priced at $70-$150 with monthly rates ranging from $8-$12 depending on the market.

The second tier, F1 TV Access, will provide live timing data, radio broadcasts, extended highlights of each session and archive video content, but no price point has been established as of yet.

Due to F1’s existing agreement with Sky, F1 TV Pro won’t be available in the UK. It will, however, be available in certain countries in Mainland Europe, Central and South America, the Caribbean and the United States.

F1 TV Access is expected to be universally available.
