Thanks to the success of Netflix's Drive to Survive, there's never been a better time to be a Formula 1 fan. And now, thanks to the official F1 TV app, you can get even closer to the action in 2023.

In this article, we explain what F1 TV is, where you can get it, whether you can install F1 TV on Apple TV and how it can make getting an F1 live stream of every practice, qualifying and race even easier.


What is F1 TV?

F1 TV is Formula 1's official OTT streaming service, and it offers two subscription plans to users. With the standard plan, F1 TV Access, you can view full race replays, highlights, F1’s historic race archives, and more. The premium plan, F1 TV Pro, has the features of F1 TV Access, and you will have live access to the track sessions for all the GPs. 

Both plans give you access to the F1 onboard cameras, so you can switch between the live feed and any of the cameras onboard the 20 cars. The camera switching is active even on race replays. You will also be able to watch exclusive documentaries and live shows produced for F1 TV. 

F1 TV is available in over 100 countries, including the US, France, South Africa, and Brazil. But in countries like the UK and Germany, the F1 TV Pro plan is not available due to existing commercial agreements. 

In the US, an F1 TV Access subscription will cost $26.99 per year at the time of writing. An F1 TV Pro subscription is more expensive at $79.99.

Is F1 TV on Apple TV?

In October 2021, Formula 1 announced a new app for Apple TV

The news means that Apple TV users with an F1 TV Pro subscription can now live stream the entire Formula 1 season, plus F2 and F3, in Full HD. 

To get started, simply download the F1 TV app from the App Store on your Apple TV. That's it.
