Italian digital satellite television platform Sky Italia secures Formula 1 broadcast rights from 2013, meaning only nine races will be broadcast free-to-air in Italy
Monza (Italian GP)- will be shown live free-to-air, with Sky and FOM set to mutually decide upon the network. RAI currently holds the broadcast rights.
BSkyB, also part of News Corp, broadcasts all races in its pay TV platform in the UK this year.
“We have worked with Sky Italia in the past and I have no doubts about their production standards,” said Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone in a statement.
“We have a similar agreement in Britain that is working very well.”
Sky Italia recently also won the broadcast rights to MotoGP from 2014.
