F1 TV Pro subscription is now available in India through the F1 TV app, with pricing set at Rs. 249 per month or Rs. 2,999 for the entire 2023 Formula 1 season. The streaming service provides live-streaming access to all track sessions at all of the races on the 2023 Formula 1 calendar, as well as live-streaming of feeder series races from the F2, F3, and Porsche Supercup series. The more affordable F1 TV Access subscription is also available now, with the price set at Rs. 1,499 for the full season.
While users could access F1 in India through Disney+ Hotstar to stream the global English-commentary telecast, fans will appreciate the official availability of the much more advanced and feature-rich F1 TV Pro subscription through the F1 TV app.
In addition to live streaming of races from the four series, key features of the subscription include access to various camera angles that can be changed and cycled by the user, replays, documentaries, archive footage, and various live data points such as timings, telemetry, tyre usage, team radio, and more.
The more affordable F1 TV Access plan costs much less at Rs. 1,499 for the season, but this does not offer the full set of features; the all-important live-streaming access isn’t available on the lower plan. Users will, however, get access to replays, documentaries, archive footage, live timing, telemetry, and other data. This might be useful for those who might prefer watching the global telecast, and use the app only as an additional data resource on a tablet or smartphone.
2023 Formula 1 World Championship kicks off in Bahrain in the first week of March, although the F1 TV Pro subscription will also offer access to pre-season testing, which starts on February 23. Notably, Formula 1: Drive to Survive returns for season 5 on February 24, ahead of the beginning of the 2023 season.
