After the debacle of the ESPN broadcast of the 2018 Australian Grand Prix, there's some good news for F1 fans: The racing organization has that its streaming service, F1 TV, will launch in May ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix.
F1 TV is Formula 1's streaming-video subscription service, allowing folks without cable TV to watch the racing series online. It'll be available in two different formats: F1 TV Pro, the premium package, will offer live racing, all 20 driver-cameras, side-by-side race viewing, and live coverage of practice, qualifying, press conferences and pre- and post-race interviews. The less-expensive F1 TV Access won't offer live video coverage, but will include live race timing data and radio broadcasts, as well as extended highlights of each session from the race weekend and a constantly-growing archive of historic F1 video.
F1 TV will be available on desktop first, followed by support for Apple, Android, and Amazon Fire tablet and mobile devices. The streaming service will come to TV devices from Apple, Android and Amazon by this summer. F1 says pricing will depend on the market, but should range around $8-12 per month or $70-150 annually.
