High-speed thrills on the big screen with F1 TV on Roku
The thrill of watching superbly skilled drivers racing ridiculously fast cars is quite something. A few years ago, catching these races could pose a bit of an issue for viewers worldwide thanks to regional restrictions and scheduling limitations. But now, with F1 TV, we can watch these races whenever we want.
In this guide, we’ll look at how you can get an F1 live stream with F1 TV on Roku and start streaming the pinnacle of motorsport now. You can also check out our full review on Roku’s mid-level 4K streamer, the Roku Premiere, here.
F1 TV is Formula 1’s official streaming service. It has two subscription tiers: F1 TV Access (opens in new tab) (the standard plan) and F1 TV Pro (opens in new tab) (the premium plan). With Access, you can watch full race replays, F1’s historic race archives, exclusive documentaries, live shows, and more.
With Pro, you can enjoy all the features of Access, and you can also catch all the GP races live with commentary in five languages.
A special feature that comes with both plans is the access to cameras on the F1 cars. You’ll be able to shuffle between the main live feed and the cameras present on the 20 cars. The camera-switching feature is available even during replays, and can be hugely entertaining – you might even catch a thrilling moment the commentators miss.
The F1 TV app is available in many countries across the world, like the US, Mexico, Austria, and Russia. F1 TV Pro, however, isn’t available everywhere. In some countries, like Germany and the UK, this plan isn’t available because of certain commercial agreements.
An F1 TV Access subscription costs $26.99/year in the US, while an F1 TV Pro subscription is $79.99. The Pro plan comes with a seven-day free trial (opens in new tab) so you can make sure it’s worth the money.
Yes, F1 TV has been available on Roku since the beginning of 2020. You will need Roku Express (3900x) or above to run F1 TV.
Setting up F1 TV on Roku is super simple. First, you have to turn on your Roku device and head to the home page. Then, go to the search bar and type F1 TV. Once you find the F1 TV channel, click on +Add channel and wait for the application to install. Open it once it’s finished installing and proceed to subscribe or log in with your existing details.
F1 TV is available on mobiles, browsers, and tablets. You can even use Chromecast and Apple Airplay to cast through your computer’s web browser, but casting from mobile and tablet apps will be launching later in 2021.
You can use browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge to watch the races. F1 TV doesn’t offer support for Opera, UC Browser, and Samsung Internet, so some features of the app may not work properly on them.
You can also get F1 TV on Android and iPhone. On Android devices, you’ll need Android OS 7 or above to run the F1 TV app. On iPhone and iPad, you’ll need iOS 10 or above, and on Amazon Fire tablet, you’ll need OS 7 or above.
Formula 1 has stated that the F1 TV on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV devices is still in development and will be launching later in 2021.
