Today Formula One Management announced plans for a new over-the-top streaming service called F1 TV. Here’s what they’ve revealed so far:
What more would you like to know? Are you thinking of signing up but want to find out more first? Whether its technical details, information about availability or anything else, post your questions below.27th February 2018, 23:07 at 11:07 pm #360604f1freekParticipant
Will it be available for Melbourne?
pre and post race coverage?
Offline downloads and session replays?27th February 2018, 23:17 at 11:17 pm #360605Mac11Participant
Will F1 TV be avilable in Canada ?28th February 2018, 2:16 at 2:16 am #360606plushpileParticipant
Which commentators are they using?
What kind of historical content will be available, full races, race summaries or highlights?28th February 2018, 4:14 at 4:14 am #360607NicoTexasParticipant
Thinking about signing up for sure.
But from the US, this is quite difficult to watch races live, so the replay/DVR feature is very important to me.
When replays are going to be available? Immediately after the race, during the race, or after a delay once the race is finished? If the delay is more than a couple of hours I would not subscribe.
Also, during live streaming, will it be possible to rewind and still pick any angle?
Will it be possible to have 2 full screen streams at the same time with 1 subscription, one for the general stream and another one for cockpit views for example?28th February 2018, 4:18 at 4:18 am #360608MtlRacerParticipant
Availability in Canada.
Stream’s highest quality? 4K? 1080p?
Will surround sound work on all platforms?
What does “past archive” contain? Any plans to acquire older content that are not already part of the “FOM archive”?28th February 2018, 5:22 at 5:22 am #360609NejcParticipant
I’m also interested in:
– 50 frames per second
– Offline availability
– When will countries without television broadcast get F1 TV?28th February 2018, 14:14 at 2:14 pm #360677JoaoParticipant
How is it going to work on various devices, there is already an app for mobile. Should we expect smart-tv to get one as well?
Is the subscription individual, since there is a price range of 8-12$ what will tell them apart? Could a person share a subscription with someone like other streaming services
Obviously I would want to know if it is available in my country (Portugal), but that will come later when they make the announcements28th February 2018, 21:40 at 9:40 pm #360828
Thanks for your feedback so far guys.

Please keep your questions coming and we’ll do what we can to look into them.1st March 2018, 1:10 at 1:10 am #360844plushpileParticipant
This is a great question – they definitely need a robust second screen option, I don’t want to be locked out of using live timing on my phone/tablet if I’m streaming the race on my TV.
Would be really powerful to watch the main race feed on TV and then to follow a particular driver’s onboard on a second screen, with live timing on a 3rd.1st March 2018, 11:19 at 11:19 am #360913AnonymousInactive
I’m definitely signing up for this, I am scared however about the lack of connection. I’ve watched many many races through streams from Blancpain to IMSA and it has happened more than once where the stream did not work properly or was massively delayed.
I’m not bothered by that as I didn’t pay a single euro for it, however if I’m to pay 8-12 euro a month for some +/-20 hours of coverage I’m expecting a flawless picture.19th March 2018, 16:27 at 4:27 pm #362659

Can we record a race weekend and play it back? If not this isn’t a great viewing for many people worldwide as many don’t watch F1 live (now the all important, non-existence US market has pushed us back an hour!!!!)27th March 2018, 13:23 at 1:23 pm #363623NejcParticipant
@Gams the races will be automatically uploaded to the site, you won’t have to record them yourself27th March 2018, 13:29 at 1:29 pm #363624AnonymousInactive
Thanks @Nejc – makes it look better for sure.
