Does anyone know of a website that will be streaming the tests at Barcelona?

You see, this is where I feel a good app (like for NFL and MLB) would also work nicely for F1
A lot of us I feel would buy a F1 streaming app in a heartbeat having access to different behind the scene stuff, testing streaming, races, and other feature stuff. Would be a great addition to the product

Autosport live always has timing and rudimentary commentary of test sessions.

I don't think anyone is streaming test video, there's just no point. Keep an eye on relevant social media for video clips though.

Sky sports in the UK always have a live text feed for the tests http://www.skysports.com/f1/live-blog

They will have a half hour update show at 9pm GMT each day reviewing the days events with Ted and Crofty I think

I usually follow the tests trough autosport and f1today.net . These are just text updates. For video, last season someone did live stream from the track, but obviously it wasn't all day long. The live stream was found on YouTube.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I too believe that Liberty should do some sort of pay per view streaming(maybe free for testing). I prefer no commentating during when cars are on the track. I wonder if ESPN(who is carrying F1 in USA) will have any of that coverage from Sky TV, as hat is who they are using this year for Broadcasting.

Guys, since this topic is being used anyhow to share websites for following pre season testing, I think we can use this as the official 2018 pre-season testing thread. So, hereby redubbed and stickied!
