F1 TV, Formula 1’s official streaming service, has been upgraded in time for the 2021 season, the fourth year it has been available to fans.
F1 TV’s picture quality has been upgraded to 1080p and 50 frames per seconds. Its interface and playback system have been revamped, giving users a finer degree of control over the streams, which could not be paused or rewound during live broadcasts previously.
Better support for casting to television has been added. Users can now cast footage using Google Chromecast and Apple AirPlay.
The total number of territories F1 TV is now available in has increased to 118 with the addition of Brazil, Slovakia and the Czech Republic for the upcoming season.
The upgraded service can already be accessed via the official F1 website and updated apps will arrive soon for Android, Apple iOs and Amazon Fire. F1 TV services for Android TV devices, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV are also in development.
The revamped app was produced in conjunction with Accenture’s Industry X group and Amazon Web Services Products & Services.
