In full, as in standard official sessions, yes.
Onboards, one can hope.

Great! But now that it’s commercial-free on ESPN my biggest grievance with cable has disappeared.

I agree. The commercial cut-in/out was Horrible in Australia, and after that race weekend I dreaded this season. I still dearly miss our friends at NBCSN... but with the added full coverage of FP1 and FP3, and a F2 sessions... ESPN has just won me over.

Plus, I cut the cord 6 months ago and been using a friend's cable provider login to get to NBCSN and ESPN app access... but now ESPN has launched their ESPN+ at $4.99 a month... so I have no need for the OTT F1 App.

It's live now on the offical website. You can go to www.formula1.com and create an account if you haven't already.
Click on Account Details and you'll see this.

You can only pay via Visa or MasterCard

Personally I would still wait until it's announced offically.

The UK viewers get no Access worth having, they only get the app data and historic races, no replays of sessions or live streaming available. I guess Sky have a cast iron contract, if only Sky would offer something comparable for F1 access only besides the expensive Now TV packages.

Yes, Sky's lock-in of the UK broadcasting rights from next year means I won't be watching F1 anymore unless it's via a VPN.

I don't blame Sky or even Bernie: I blame the BBC.

If F1 is worth watching in a few years when Sky's contract is up, I'll return and happily pay Liberty for their package.

I have emailed Sky asking for them to match the F1 Liberty offer. If they received enough requests maybe they would capitulate. I do not want or need the other sports channels or any other channels A simple access to F1 online to match Liberty's offering at a comparable price is not too much to ask is it. If many thousands of UK F1 fans contacted Sky they may listen....... [-o<
