How to view the Formula 1 live

Salida del GP de Australia F1 2016Has started the F1 world 2016 that is presented as the longest in the history of Formula 1, with 21 Major Awards around the world. But unlike last year, the championship not be able to continue in the open, being the race of Yas Marina 2015 is the last to be issued openly by Antenna 3, after which Atresmedia had to give up rights for the purchase of the exclusivity of Telefónica through its platform Movistar.

There are many forms of to see the Formula 1 live and we proposed alternatives to see the F1 free or siguirla from some apps for mobile, for free this 2016. This is not only for those who can not pay, but also for those who are in a geographical area of Spain where it does not reach the service offered by Movistar, as there is, and quite a few. Now we are going to review other alternatives, not necessarily free of charge, to view the Formula 1 live this year 2016.

fernando-alonso-renault-2008What is certain is that F1 open has disappeared in Spain at the moment, as that seems to be difficult for any platform to re-purchase the rights to re-broadcast free of charge. Other countries are taking these same steps, relegating the sport to pay channels. The hearing of the F1 decreasing mainly due to the results of local hero Fernando Alonso and the new rules that have slowed the show, passing of millions of viewers thousands this year, according to some sources.

F1 landed in Spain at the end of the eighties in TVE, although in a way discontinued. Then, in 1997, the chain autonomous Catalan TV3 also took over the broadcast rights to offer it in direct only in Catalan and in Catalonia during six seasons (1997-2002), to then be opened in the last few years. Later, in 2004, Mediaset was made with the rights to broadcast by Telecinco the world, going to MediaPro (LaSexta) and then AtresPlayer (Antenna 3), putting an end to gratuitousness and to the relay in the open…

Movistar+ to view the Formula 1 live

Logo de Movistar TVTelefónica bought the exclusivity broadcast live the F1 for this 2016. The company will provide the sport through its dedicated channel Movistar F1, where they devote 24 hours to broadcast programs aimed at the fans of this theme of motorsport. Here you’ll find racing of years past, programs with technical content, interviews, and of course the official sessions of free practice, qualifying and race of each GP this year in direct.

The cost-per-view Movistar F1 representing an increase of€10 (single-engine: F1 and MotoGP) to be added to the rest of the expenses for hiring other services that Movistar requires to have the ability to view your TV channels, such as fiber optics (which does not reach to all corners of Spain). Although outside of this unique channel, with Movistar+ will also be given summaries from Thursday to Sunday every day of the engine by the Channel Zero, which is included in the Family package.

equipo-movistar-tvTo direct the program have not wanted to have Antonio Lobato, who has broadcast Formula 1 in Spain for 12 years, but have preferred to Josep Lluis Merlos, who narrates the races from a studio in Madrid. But despite the change, as many have sharply criticized Lobato, this new payment program has not been free of criticism by the language used and the errors, above all directed towards Iñaki Cano Jr., who also is a component of the group relay.

What is certain is that in Movistar F1 (dial 57 of Movistar+) has also been signed to the people of this world from the category of Pedro Martínez de la Rosa and Marc Gené who were already with Antenna 3 in the past year. Naomi Miguel will be the reporter to the foot of the track that will tell the news from the circuit and interviewing the staff of the Formula 1 in direct. Next to Naomi is also Albert Fabrega. And an addition that I particularly like is the Joan Villadelprat, next to Peter, put a touch more wise to the computer.

Yomvi: See F1 live in any place

yomvi logoRelated to the previous section, as you must be subscribed to Movistar+ with the sports package, we find Yomvi. This is the service that relays the live content via streaming so that you can enjoy from your computer, tablet or smartphone. This is a good option if you are away from home, as you will not be able to count on the TV to see the channels of Movistar+, and in this way to follow the Formula 1, live, from any place.

this Is a service similar to that until last year offered Atresmedia, providing the content of each session of the F1 world live via their TV channel Antenna 3 or, if not had a tv or you wanted to see the race at any other time, the app AtresPlayer allowed you to see the content through streaming video from any device and place (with Internet connection, obviously).

RTVE and TV3 only (GP of Spain)

GP de España recta principalRTVE has also paid about 700,000 euros per issue in the open and live the GP of Spain of Formula 1, a race that features a lot of audience and in which he has wanted to snatch the exclusivity of Movistar. In addition it will provide summaries of 1 hour of each of the 21 GPs of the season 2016 F1 through the channel TDP once you have finished the race.

TV3 has also reached an agreement with Movistar to transmit the race home in the Barcelona circuit in direct. The regional television channel of Catalan may also have the rights in order to broadcast a summary of the best of each race with 1 hour of duration on a deferred basis. TV3, like Antenna 3 (and previous chains offered by the F1 in open) has ceased issuing this sport after many years this exclusivity agreement that he spoke of in the previous paragraphs.

Satellite to view the Formula 1 live

Ver la F1 con parabólicasatellite, with a parabolic antenna + digital receiver, you can access to foreign channels, but you’ll have to listen to the broadcasts in other languages, as it is logical. Some casual fans of the sport, you probably consider it a good option to see channels from other countries that still continue to offer the F1 in the open, though the fashion of cease emissions in open it seems that it is spreading to other countries.

For examples, can be followed on channels such as the German RTL via Astra (Astra 19.2 º E – 12187.50 H – 27500 – 3/4), which can be caught from our country without any problems. The RAI is another valid option, and to do this you must guide your satellite dish so that you can catch the signal from the satellite Eutelsat (Eutelsat 5th West – 11012-V – 30000 – 3/5), or even the british channel that are threatened with losing the rights to air on closed-as has happened in Spain this year.
