Post here all non technical related topics about Formula One. This includes race results, discussions, testing analysis etc. TV coverage and other personal questions should be in Off topic chat.

It's pretty bad, most of us bought it to enjoy the English stream and then,well... we saw nothing yesterday :D
At least they are not pretending like everything is OK and are giving refunds. I'll give them another chance, but if it does not work on next race then bye bye...
Team Fernando!

TV Pro isn't available in NZ, not that a cottoned on before getting the monthly sub (whoops!). The archive footage is nice to have but the quality of the videos is woeful, I can stream 4k HD no worries on other video websites, couldn't get anything more than 360p at best on the F1 TV service. A little disappointing.

Is it just me or is there no way to re-watch FP1/FP2? Only 12 minutes of "Highlights". This "service" is pissing me off more and more...

/edit
Contacted customer support. They have a slight delay in uploading FP1/FP2. Will be available later today.

Is there any way to combine engine sound and team radio on driver specific stream? I activate one other disables on its own

So are there any Australian forum members using this yet ?

If so could you give me your thoughts please ?

I'd really like to try it, but from what I can gather so far the full package still isn't available.

Thanks guys

Is the quality already better? Or still not worth it?

During whole weekend worked well. In the race there were small lagging but after thay went well (maybe a bit picture shifted to low quality) but what annoys me is that footage is late if you follow live timing for about half a lap. I think i wont subscribe for now. I dont use onboards(they are lagging) and feed can watch from streams

I've been using it since Monaco. Does anyone else have the English commentary lag about 2s behind the image?

I subscribed and tried watching the Spanish and Monaco GP. The truth is they aren't ready yet for the amount of fans that connect on race day. Free practices look good, no problems at all. But during race day there was a lot of buffering, lag, and changing camera or language froze. So I decided to cancel my subscription and try later in the year. Plus you are forced to watch on a laptop as the mobile platform was not ready yet.

I have the UK option ( erm, no option. its the one you get) and am still unsure what I am going to get eventually.

OK, there are highlights, and preses of previous years, but some things seem to want me to take the option then say its not available.
Alright for what it cost, but i could not get by with just that.
