Sky Sports F1 packages: What do you get?
The channel is available in both standard and high definition (through Sky sports F1 HD) HD, with races also being shown in ultra HD (UHD) from 2017. You’ll get full live coverage of all the practise and qualifying sessions as well as the races; plus coverage of support races such as the Porsche Super Cup.
F1 Race control
One of the big pluses for F1 fans when Sky took over was the introduction of Race control: a multi-camera system that put the viewer in control of the race experience by letting them choose which cameras to follow, including individual cars, pit lane, timing screen and driver tracker.
From the 2015 season, Sky Sports F1 limited Race Control to its red button service and the Apple iPad app. Races can also be watched on the go thanks to Sky’s Sky Go app for Android and Apple devices, if you’re a Sky subscriber.
Comparing Sky Sports F1 deals
The most common (and arguably best) way to experience Sky Sports F1 is via one of the many Sky TV (and, optionally, broadband) offers. Deals with Sky Sports bolted on aren’t the cheapest, but remember you get the full Sky Sports experience: all the football, cricket, rugby and golf you could want from your armchair.
But you can also find Sky Sports F1 deals on other platforms. Virgin Media, BT and TalkTalk offer sports bundles that include the channel, while all of Sky Sports’ channels are available to buy on a month-by-month basis through NowTV (not cheap, but convenient – and you can cancel as and when you like).
