Formula 1 on stream / TV: How to follow F1 live on Sky in 2021

RTL ends the Formula 1 broadcast after around 30 years. If you want to watch the premier class of motorsport on TV in 2021, you have to switch to Sky. That costs additional money, but it’s worth it – especially in 2021. Mick Schumacher (everything about his career!) Is new, Sebastian Vettel drives Aston Martin instead of Ferrari and Red Bull could really heat up Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes).

That is what Sky offers

But it is not only worthwhile in terms of sport. Sky is setting up its own TV channel for the new era from 2021: Sky Formula 1. Here there is motorsport 24 hours a day. All training sessions, all qualifying sessions, all races always live and without commercial breaks. Sky also broadcasts the Formula 2, Formula 3 and Porsche Supercup races. The press conferences for the drivers on Thursday, the team bosses on Friday and the top three of the race on Sunday will also be broadcast live. The program also includes historical races and special programs.

Ralf Schumacher as a commentator on Sky

Lead professionally Commentator Sascha Roos and expert Ralf Schumacher through the TV program. Schumi II will only co-comment half of the races of nephew Mick Schumacher’s. The former RTL expert takes over the other half Timo Glockwho with it Nick Heidfeld replaced.

The Formula 1 races will only be broadcast by Sky in 2021.

Four races are to be broadcast freely and free of charge

As early as 2020, an average of 510,000 viewers took advantage of the Sky offer. The question now is how many of the average 3.98 million viewers switch from RTL to Sky. Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko believes the ratings will drop: “Experience has shown that ratings drop drastically after such a change in the first phase.” After all, four races should be free and free of charge (which ones are still unclear).

These are the prices for the Formula 1 stream

Attention: Formula 1 is not included in the sports ticket for ten euros a month. Instead, customers have the choice between a monthly cancellation Subscription for 19.99 euros per month or an annual ticket for 17.50 euros per month.

Sky is paying quite a bit for the exclusive broadcasting rights for Formula 1 in Germany – allegedly four times as much as RTL so far. Therefore, customers can no longer take out a subscription to the Formula 1 streaming service F1 TV. Only existing customers are allowed to stay on board. But if you want to stream on-demand access to repeats and historical races, you can get F1 TV Access for 26.99 euros per year. There are more offers from Sky here.

New start times for Formula 1
