The global administration of Formula 1 announced that from the 2018 World Championship the F1 TV platform will be available: a streaming service through which fans can enrich their experience in each Grand Prix – including the 2018 Grand Prix of Mexico.
This launch is the most recent measure of a much-announced process of modernization of the brand, designed to complement the experiences of the fans and bring them closer to the top category of motor sport.
Through F1 TV, Formula 1 fans can enjoy live broadcasts of each race without commercials and with commentaries in several languages. In addition, the service will offer exclusive access to the 20 cameras on board each of the single-seaters in all races. F1 TV Pro will have unique content that will not be available on any other platform, while it will have multilevel customization options.
Subscribers can choose the content to see and how and when to access it. All practice sessions, classifications and races will be broadcast live, as well as press conferences and interviews before and after each race. Additionally, users will be able to see live the races of the main support categories: the FIA Formula 2 Championship, the GP3 Series, Porsche Supercup, among others.
During the season, F1 TV will be available in four different languages (English, French, German and Spanish) and will be present in almost two dozen markets at a launching stage (including Germany, France, USA, Mexico, Belgium, Austria, Hungary and a large percentage of Latin America). Initially, access will be available through desktop computers and via the web; Availability in mobile apps and TV applications will be implemented in stages in Amazon, Apple and Android, allowing users to consume content in a wide variety of devices at no additional cost.
According to the official announcement of Formula 1, F1 TV Pro prices will be offered in monthly plans of between $ 8 USD and $12 USD. On the other hand, the annual rates will be fixed according to each market.
A lower-cost subscription level, which will not be live, F1 TV Access will provide live race time data and radio commentary, as well as the best moments of each race weekend session. It should be noted that it will also have unprecedented access to content from the incredible historical archive of F1. F1 TV Access will be available almost anywhere in the world from its launch stage and will complement the F1 TV Pro service.
With this new platform, which will be available from its launch in our country, there will be no excuse for not seeing the Grand Prix of Mexico next 26, 27 and 28 October.
