So € 64,99 per Year to avoid Heiko, Kai and Nico. Sounds fair. :mrgreen:
Not sure.

I think audio will be the one from your country.
In France we will get the same audio than broadcast chanel.

Last week there was a link saying that, in Germany for example, you can choose between the French, Spanish, German or English Audio Feed. That would solve the Problem.

Just hoping that is true.

So apparently the User will have Access to different Language Streams. For Example German Users will have access to the German (RTL *bleh*), French, Italian and English Com,entary. That makes it more Interesting for me.

... so no, it does appear we can choose, which makes sense in that it would simply all come in the same stream, with geoblocking to keep it to 'allowed' countries.

Tweet has since been deleted, but I managed to grab a screenshot.

On one of the pictures there was an option for commentary selection in different languages and I think there were even onboard recordings available for races dating back to 1998, but I'm not entirely sure. There were driver options available for 98 spa race, but not an actual screenshot of the onboard.

I still wonder about the rules....for example how many devices can go on one account. Sharing with people in the office would be cool, but for myself I do not know if I should buy it while also the Sky contract is running.

It looks like they have effectively blocked any UK viewers receiving this by insisting that the credit card address needed to pay for it has to be in an authorized country and it's IP stream must match too. So no VP to circumvent things. There is maybe a way around it but as this is a public forum I will keep it to myself.......

There will always be ways to watch. BURNINGWHEE1S has each session a few hours after broadcast.

Looks like they've just announced that they won't make the 22nd launch date. Being released as a limited beta at this point to stress test during the Australian GP weekend. Swing and a miss.

Just got an email that service will be coming soon:
This is it. A heart-pounding season of 21 gut-wrenching Grands Prix is here. And this year we’re getting you closer to the action than ever before. As you’ve already registered to be the first to hear about the F1 TV App, we wanted to let you know that it’s coming very soon, we just want to make sure it’s as epic as promised.

Anyone here that has/had beta access during Melbourne GP weekend? Will it be worth the money? Did everything work properly?

Anyone heard any updates about F1TV being available in time for Bahrain? The whole payment thing has me worried... I wanted to play the whole VPN game from Aus.
