    This is Canal+’s second year broadcasting F1. F1 in France went from a free channel, TF1, to a subscription channel, Canal+, last year, which caused a big drop in audiences. Nevertheless the coverage is now much more extensive, if not to the level of SkyF1’s (probably due to a lack of experience and F1 culture in France).

    A Sky Sport subscription apparently costs 10€ a month if you already have Sky, 29.90€ a month if you don’t have a Sky subscription and choose Sky TV + Sky Sport + classic decoder (which costs 29€ to deliver). Choosing the MySky advanced decoder which allows for on-demand viewing and HD costs 59€ + 34.90€ a month
    Furthermore I saw FP3 on RAI last week, specifically on RAI Sport 2 (channel 58 in Italy) so I’m guessing they show all free practice sessions for the Grands Prix they show live on RAI Sport 1 (channel 57) or 2. I will check as the season goes on to verify that.

    I mostly watch via illegal live web stream of Sky F1 channel. Its the only way I can get practice and the Sky pre-quali, pre-race and post-race coverage. If I can’t watch live (eg am at work) then I download a torrent of the shows.

    If watching race live I watch pre-race show via illegal web stream, then switch to live tv for race (the moron Australian commentators talk over MB and ruin it) then back to web for post-race.

    I’d happily pay Sky to watch it all via web directly from them. In the meantime I have to steal practice as it is the only way to see it in Australia. Not even pay tv has it.

    In Tunisia there is no law that protect from hacking these channels, all what you need is to buy a dish and a receiver that can be connected to a router through an RJ45 or WiFi for something between 60 and 150 euro (it depends if it is normal or HD), and a subscription to a sharing server for something like 35 euro a year to open not just the F1 channels but all the related packages.
    Bein Sport is actually unavailable from April 12th due to their new encryption system, the subscription alone costs more than 250 euro a year

    1. What country are you in (and state, if applicable)
    India.
    2. Which channels broadcast F1 near you?
    Star Sports 4 ( It used to change between Star Sports 2 and Star Sports 4 ).
    3. Do they show all the races live or only a limited number (if so, how many?)
    All races .
    4. Do they also show qualifying live?
    Yes.
    5. Do they also show practice sessions live?
    Yes.
    6. If they are a subscription channel, what does a full year’s subscription cost (excluding limited time offers)?
    Usually the channel is combined with others . But to give you an idea , you would have to pay Rs 360 for a year (which works out to 6 $ a year ) if you were to add only that particular channel . Better deals are found in combos.
    7. Do they broadcast coverage online? If so please post link/s
    I don’t know .
    8. Please supply any other relevant information such as alternative viewing options

    1)okay , first of all , they feed the sky commentary . So essentially we listen to martin brundle commentary but not the grid walks . But the pre-race is boring with Alex yoong.

    2)You can route the channel through regular cable or through DTH with minor cost differences.

    3)No HD option as of now .

    @Wackyracer I can’t tell which of your responses apply to Macedonian National TV and which apply to SportKlub TV. Could you do a separate list of responses for each channel, please?

    @Backwards Which option does the €330 refer to? It doesn’t seem to tally with @Force-Maikel‘s list of prices for Sporting Telenet.

    @Jarred-Walmsley So 12*(73.37+46.92+26.45) = $1760.88 for a full year?

    @Palle Thanks, I’ve put that down as £356.

    @RetardedF1sh Ah, so although you could just buy the channels for March to November it actually works out cheaper to get them for 12 months at the lower rate (€239.40 vs €269.95).

    @Karmen Both channels show all races, qualifying and practice live? So why would you pay for the subscription channel?

    @OmarR-Pepper OK – so you can pay $360 and get the F1, or pay $720 and get F1 plus a load of extra stuff?

    @Fixy Thanks for the extra info.

    —–

    Thanks again to everyone who’s contributed here so far.

    We’ve now had information for Australia, Austria (missing a lot of detail), Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, India, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia (some more information needed here too), Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Tunisia, UK, UAE and USA.

    Please do keep submitting your responses even if you’re repeating ones which have appeared already as it’s useful to be able to double-check the details.

    In particular I would like to get responses for countries which hold rounds of the world championship which we haven’t got details on yet: Malaysia, China, Monaco, Canada, Austria, Singapore and Japan.

    Here’s the list of questions again with some notes on how to fill them in based on the feedback so far:

    Please complete one set of questions for each channel/network which broadcasts F1 in your country

    1. What country are you in (and state, if applicable)

    2. Which channels broadcast F1 near you?
    No need to include details for broadcasters from other countries whose transmissions you can receive

    3. Do they show all the races live or only a limited number (if so, how many?)

    4. Do they also show qualifying live? (if so, how many?)

    5. Do they also show practice sessions live? (if so, how many?)

    6. If they are a subscription channel, what does a full year’s subscription cost (excluding limited time offers)?
    Imagine you’ve just bought a TV and paid any taxes or licenses necessary to operate it. What is the minimum you then have to pay per year in order to watch F1?

    7. Do they broadcast coverage online? If so please post link/s

    Hello, can you correct the table, please?
    Russian channel Sport1 HD costs £30 A YEAR not a month. And maybe you can change it to £50, because you can’t get this channel without standard TV package.

    There is website which has the macedonian tv channels and you can watch F1 there on MTV1 for free (macedonian only – http://play.mrt.com.mk/epg/linear/3551)
    8. Please supply any other relevant information such as alternative viewing options

    – Macedonian National TV – It’s on cable, commentators have not clue what they are talking about, mute is the best option, I can’t watch F1 on this channel, it’s painful. They do not show the practice sessions, just qualy and race. If there is something more important to be shown on the channel, they drop F1 and show what they wish will bring them more viewers.

    – Sport Klub TV – It’s also on cable, it’s on Serbian language (Macedonians know Serbian but still it’s not as good as your own language). They do not talk about technical stuff, there are two commentators and both seem like they are play-by-play commentators. They show everything from the first practice till the race.

    – RTL TV – German TV, they show all the practice sessions, qualy and race, but we do not understand the language and just watching pictures :P

    – Illegal live stream from Sky F1 on the internet, which is where most of Macedonians watch F1

    All these three channels are on Cable which i pay 10 Euros a month for.

    There are no other or better options in Macedonia
