Thought you needed expensive cable to watch F1 races? Think again. Thanks to the F1 TV Android and iPhone apps, Formula 1 fans can tune into every 2023 Grand Prix on the go.

The official F1 TV service brings you more action, analysis and replays than you'll get from any other broadcaster. Better yet, you can have access to all that F1 goodness in your pocket at all times.

In this guide, we take you through what the F1 TV app is, its availability on Android and iPhone apps, and how you can live stream F1 races via the service.  

What is F1 TV?

F1 TV is Formula 1's official video streaming service, and it comes with two subscription plans. With the basic subscription, F1 TV Access, you can view full race replays, highlights, F1’s historic race archives, and more. 

The advanced subscription, F1 TV Pro, has everything from F1 TV Access and even better features, like live access to the track sessions for all the GPs and unedited team radio feeds. 

An excellent feature that both plans provide is access to the F1 onboard cameras. With this, you’ll be able to switch between the live feed and any of the cameras installed on the 20 cars. You can alternate between cameras even during race replays. 

F1 TV is available in over 100 countries, including the US, Argentina, France, and South Africa. But some, like the UK and Australia, don't offer the 'Pro' version, and so miss out on live streaming races.

Is F1 TV on Android and iPhone apps?

Good news - F1 TV is indeed available both on Android and iOS apps. That means whatever your device, you'll be able to bring the thrills and spills of the Formula 1 season right to your smartphone or tablet. 

There's also Chromecast support for mobile and tablet apps. Connect your device to the same network as your Chromecast, log into the F1 TV app, pull the up content you want to watch, and hit the 'Cast' button.

How to install F1 TV on Android and iPhone apps

Installing F1 TV on Android and iOS devices is quite simple once you've signed up for an F1 TV subscription.

On both devices, head to the respective app stores (App Store for iOS and Play Store for Android), search for F1 TV, and install it. Once downloaded, open the app and sign into your account. If you don’t yet have an account, click on Get Started and set up your subscription. 

What other devices can I watch F1 TV on?

Other than Android and iPhone apps on mobiles, F1 TV is available on browsers and tablets.

You can watch it on your PC through web browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, but F1 TV doesn't offer support for Opera, Samsung Internet, and UC Browser. You also can’t use your mobile or tablet browser to stream the service. 

To use the app on Android mobile and tablet, you must have Android OS 7 and above. On iPhone and iPad, you’ll have to run iOS 10 and above, and on an Amazon Fire tablet, you’ll have to be on OS 7 and above. Finally, on Roku devices, you’ll need 3900x and above. 

F1 TV also supports Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV (not supported via the TV App).
