Formula 1 on TV and livestream: Despite RTL-Aus – here you can see Vettel, Schumi & Co. now live
A serious change awaits motorsport fans in Germany this season. RTL has lost the broadcasting rights and only shows a limited number of races. Now the audience is asking themselves: Where can I get all of the races Formula 1 on TV and livestream follow?
DERWESTEN answers this question and explains where you will be starting the 2021 season Formula 1 on TV and livestream can track.
Formula 1 on TV and livestream: Sky secures exclusive rights
After 30 years, the end for RTL followed. The broadcaster from Cologne has completely lost the broadcasting rights for Formula 1 to Sky. The pay-TV giant was able to secure the exclusive rights and shows all of the races Formula 1 on TV and livestream.
German fans now have to adapt, because from the 2021 season they need a subscription to follow all Formula 1 Grand Prix live. You currently pay 17.50 euros per month for Formula 1 on Sky, but you also get the full range of sports (excluding the Bundesliga).
