Any options for watching F1 online that don’t involve DSTV/Supersport?


#1384

Keep an eye on reddit - they often have live streams - but its a mission to get it to work


#1385

Ah lame.

Pity Liberty doesn’t have their own streaming service for F1. I’d pay for that.


#1386

Well, technically they do.


Just not for us in South Africa (cos DSTV, licence, broadcast rights, bla, bla, etc, etc.)

You can get a F1TV Access subscription in SA, but that does not include Live broadcasts.


Access costs $3 monthly or $27 annually.

For Live race broadcasts you need F1TV Pro. That costs $12/month or $100/year.

I wonder if a vpn service would get around that restriction.

14 days delay for race replays is a bit much


#1388

Honestly don’t know. Like others like this though, I think you may have issues using a local payment method for it. That “credit card address must match country of service” stuff. May be worth trying for a 1 month sub to see, if it goes through, yay for you! If not, nothing lost.

Yeah, that does suck. Blame DSTV for that one too :slight_smile:

This is taking things to far

Also waiting for the williams launch:

#1394

That’s huge! A McLaren that looks like a BAR incoming?


#1395

Also, here is the STR14. Looks neat without being spectacular. Apparently it has a lot of Red Bull 2018 bits on it.


#1396

And here is the FW42, with new title sponsorship.

Edit: Sorry, sorry, it’s just a livery reveal, not the new car at all.

#1397

I want a top down look of this, the new nose is good


#1398

It’s not the new car though, just last year’s with the new livery.

Edit: sorry, you were talking about the Toro Rosso.


#1399

yea I realised that too late - I want the new cars dammit!


#1400

Renders are somewhat suspect, yeah. Best to wait until we see the real thing.


#1401

Wait, I haven’t been keeping up with the changes. What is the visual changes supposed to look like this year? Just the front wing?


#1402

Off the top of my head;

  • Wider front wings with simpler endplates and limited number of elements
  • Simplified front brake ducts, no more using them as aero devices
  • Ditto for wheel nuts
  • Barge boards must be lower but can extend further forward than before
  • Wider and lower rear wings with an increased DRS opening
