    An update of the Belgium channels:

    1. What country are you in (and state, if applicable)

    Belgium

    2. Which channels broadcast F1 near you?

    La Une or La Deux (RTBF = French), RTL (German channel), Pay TV: Telenet (I don’t know about Proximus).

    3. Do they show all the races live or only a limited number (if so, how many?)

    They should be broadcasting all the races. RTBF may switch between their two channels La Une or La Deux

    4. Do they also show qualifying live?

    For RTBF: normally they do, unless with major events (Euro 2016 matches). For Pay TV Telenet: yes. For RTL (Germany) I have no clue.

    5. Do they also show practice sessions live?

    I know for sure about Telenet (Pay TV), don’t know if the others do.

    6. If they are a subscription channel, what does a full year’s subscription cost (excluding limited time offers)?

    For Telenet (depending on your package):

    329.40 euros a year (27.45 euros/month) If you only have Digital TV with Telenet
    263.40 euros a year (21.95 euros/month) if you have Digital TV + Internet (Not ‘FreeSurf’) OR a fixed telephone line with Telenet
    197.40 euros a year (16.45 euros/month) if you have Digital TV + Internet (Not ‘FreeSurf’) + a fixed telephone line

    You cannot cancel without getting extra charged during the first 6 months of your subscription. After these 6 months you can cancel at any time without paying extra charges.

    You can also buy a ‘Play Sports’ (that’s how the Pay TV channel from Telenet is called) daypass. This costs 9.95 euros and lasts 24 hours only.

    Keep in mind that on top of this you have to pay your subscription for cable TV, Digital TV anyway at a minimum and your ‘Authors rights’

    For me this means in addition:

    Cable TV: 12.25 euros per month = 147 euros per year
    Authors rights: 4.05 euros per month = 48.60 euros per year

    7. Do they broadcast coverage online? If so please post link/s

    You can watch online (Telenet) via the Yelo app (on Android and Ipad) or on Yelo TV (yelotv.be) This does not work on Google Chrome due to Silverlight plugin not supported by Google Chrome.

    8. Please supply any other relevant information such as alternative viewing options.

    RTBF (Regular channels La Une, La Une HD, La Deux and La Deux HD)
    RTL (Germany – regular channel)

    Sky has revealed the details of its plans to broadcast F1 in Ultra HD (4K) in the UK for the first time:

    https://corporate.sky.com/media-centre/news-page/2016/sky-q-launches-ultra-hd-bringing-customers-the-most-comprehensive-range-of-tv-they-love-in-enhanced-picture-quality

    You will need a ‘Sky Q Silver box’ with a Sky Sports subscription to watch F1 in Ultra HD. A glance at the Sky website indicates this will cost £83.50 per month with a minimum 18-month contract term plus a £10 set-up fee costing a grand total of…

    £1,513!

    Well the price is unsurprisingly ridiculous. I can only see pubs going for this, but on a technical level, they say you get all these things in Ultra HD (4k), but realistically how much of their output is genuinely 4k and not just upscaled (which is cheating and not true ultra HD)?

    Are FOM 4k equipped yet? End of the day if FOM can’t do 4k, then Sky can’t give you 4k.

    Also in their marketing, they say about their 170 football games. That is all their games and I know for a fact that there are fewer than ten 4k equipped OB trucks in the UK (ironically BTW sport has one – it did last year’s British Moto GP) so sounds like you’re gonna be fleeced after they rip you off!

    And to think, NHK in Japan want to broadcast the 2020 Olympics in 8k!

    the price is unsurprisingly ridiculous. I can only see pubs going for this

    Standard Sly Sports packages for pubs depend on the rateable value (as well as a complex system of discounts) and vary from 3 to 50 times the cost charged to private households. The national average is around £400 a month, but it can go up to well over £2500. Those prices are for standard HD programming, so you can expect 4k to be twice that.

    An average pub looking to provide 4k content on a 12-month contract will probably be paying a total close to £10,000. One in a city centre or with high traffic could easily find themselves charged 4-5 times that.

    Now, for that kind of money you can visit the GPs in Belgium, England, Spain and Germany flying from England. I don’t really understand whom would take such a package, or how Sky ever thought ‘hmm, what is still a reasonable price? Ah 1500 pound will be it.’

    F1 fans in France note Liberty are keeping the broadcast on the Canal network until 2020 having recently signed a new deal. Note the is also “a Free-To-Air partnership still to be concluded” according to the official release:

    Formula 1®, the pinnacle of motorsport, has today agreed a multi-year media deal with CANAL+, a Vivendi Group company for the right to broadcast all Grand Prix events, also including Formula 2 and GP3, on CANAL+, CANAL+SPORT and associated channels.

    The deal will begin in March 2018 and marks the first major media rights agreement to be made under the new ownership of Formula 1.

    CANAL+, the premium pay TV broadcast service, has covered Formula 1 since 2013 and the new deal underlines the channel’s longstanding association with motorsport.

    This deal follows the recent announcement that the French Grand Prix will return to the Formula 1 calendar for the 2018 season after an absence of ten years.

    France has a strong heritage in Formula 1 and the involvement of Renault as a constructor and Frenchmen Romain Grosjean and Esteban Ocon as drivers in the current season reinforces this fact.

    Beyond CANAL+ broadcast, Vivendi Group Major companies will also strive to develop transverse partnerships with Formula 1 in digital, gaming, music and entertainment.

    Sean Bratches, Managing Director, Commercial Operations at Formula 1 said:

    “We look forward to the continuation of our long-standing relationship with CANAL+ and the Vivendi Group that resets the marketplace for integrated media and marketing partnerships, which stand to support and build our respective businesses and provide value for both Formula 1 fans and CANAL+ customers.

    “Formula 1 fans are the big winners with the planned marketing and brand building integration opportunities, utilising Vivendi’s far-reaching leadership in music, film, long and short form TV, digital and gaming.

    “We are pleased to have completed this deal in time for the return of the French Grand Prix to Formula 1 in 2018 and look forward to putting on a great show for our fans in France.

    Ian Holmes, Global Director, Media Rights at Formula 1 said:

    “CANAL+ offers Formula 1 an unrivalled platform in the French market. The depth and breadth of their coverage combined with their editorial standards and presentation makes them a perfect partner for us as we continue to grow the brand.

    “We welcome the opportunity to further explore and develop innovative ways to bring the Championship to the fans and believe that the wider Vivendi Group of companies can help us achieve that aim.

    “This agreement, combined with a Free-To-Air partnership still to be concluded, marks a great step forward in this key Formula 1 market.”

    “We are delighted to extend and strengthen our partnership with Formula 1 for the 2018-2020 period. French fans are famously passionate about motorsport and we are honoured to deliver the FIA World Championship to CANAL+ viewers for the foreseeable future.”

    Maxime Saada, CEO, Group CANAL+ said:

    “CANAL+ Group is pleased to have won the Formula 1 rights until 2020 and be able to continue to offer its subscribers 100% of this world-class event exclusively.

    “This successful outcome will come as a reward to the efforts of the CANAL+ Sports team headed by Thierry Cheleman. They demonstrated their ability to innovate in the coverage of this major event, which earned CANAL+ the prize for the best broadcaster in 2014.

    “The deal will reach a whole new dimension within the Vivendi Group, which will strive to extend the partnership with FOM on digital with Dailymotion, gaming and music.”

    Was so happy I was able to watch the British GP in my hotel in Beijing, China.
    It was on a channel called Star Sports 2 and had the English sky commentary. It also showed all Formula E sessions.

    The agreement with Movistar+ is added to the others which have been sealed throughout 2017:
    among them Australia, France, Germany and United States.

    Starting from April 2018 the Belgian french television will comply with the portability of digital content in Europe for its online streaming services.

    This means authenticated Belgians on rtbf website will soon be able to watch F1 live online outside of Belgium (but still in Europe).
