ITV to broadcast all F1 sessions live online this year

ITV will show free practice, qualifying and races live on the internet this year.

I have criticised ITV for various shortcomings in their production in the past but this is definitely a step forward and I applaud them for it.

It’s not clear whether it will be available to those outside of Britain but I don’t think it’s very likely. They also haven’t said whether the coverage will be interrupted by adverts. But simply getting to see practice live when it was never broadcast before in Britain is a step forwards.

However ITV’s video player is not Apple Macintosh compatible, which will prevent a minority of viewers from being able to watch.

Fans will also be able to re-watch races up to 30 days after they have aired. A spokesperson for Formula One Management said:

With UK Formula 1 audiences reaching their highest levels in many years, it gives us great pleasure to fuel this resurgence further with the introduction of online rights to complement ITV’s broadcast coverage.

ITV’s F1 audience grew by 40% in Britain last year as Lewis Hamilton led the championships standings for much of the year.

To find out what times all the sessions are happening in Britain, see the list of races at the bottom of this page. Here are the times for the Australian Grand Prix.

  1. My husband travels for a living. Additional times than he would care to count, his company has booked him into a hotel which doesn’t provide cable Television. Last year, even though surfing the web, he came across a site the allows him to Watch FlashForward Online. Now he has one thing to complete on those nights when he is bored. This makes me extremely happy as there have been nights when he would go out looking for something to try and do. He would usually spend extra out about the town than he had made that day. His work is to bring cash in, not spend extra than he makes.

  2. Our renters moved out a few months ago and left us with a mess to clean up. Not just had been there holes within the wall, they also destroyed doors, window frames and carpets. They have been extremely smart and covered up the damage with pictures, posters and curtains so we didn’t realize the extent with the harm until they were gone. Now we’re fixing up the house so we can rent it again. Thankfully, this job is very much easier as we have a laptop with wireless capabilities. We are capable to Watch FlashForward Online. also as other shows so we’re entertained although toiling away. It’s good that the Web offers things of this nature.

  3. Helpful article. But I need to express you can actually profit from this blog to help earn many exposure. I just acquired started out my own web site two days ago and also acquired about 868 targeted traffic the initial hour and over 2k visits today and yes it appears like it is certainly rising.
