Sky Sports will create a dedicated HD Formula 1 channel for the next season, through the first term of its multi-year contract to broadcast the sport across a wide range of platforms. Every practice, qualifying and race will be shown live.
Spectators will also be able to follow the action through on-board cameras, go behind the scenes in the pits and have access to race data through Sky’s interactive service while the channel will also show in-depth interviews, archive action and magazine shows
“Formula 1 followers are hungry for more and we want to give them the ultimate experience. It’s not just every minute of every race but a channel devoted to Formula 1,” explained Barney Francis, Managing Director of Sky Sports.
“We can now tell the whole story of the season, from every Grand Prix, from start to finish. Formula 1 will get the full Sky Sports treatment. We have big plans for live shows and a rich line-up of Formula 1 programmes; getting to the drivers, exploring the technology and lapping up the drama.
“With a dedicated channel for Formula 1 we can also give all sports fans the depth and breadth of sports they demand every weekend, right through the year.”
