I paid for f1tv pro last month via apple. Apple says i have the subscription up till next month but f1 says i dont have a subscription and wont let me watch the race. It had worked flawlessly before this month but i dont know what happened.
It Is very good app visually the problem is I signed up for the pro pass and when I want to rewatch a race it asks me to up grade to the pro pass. Also you need to be able to air play on your tv but you can’t it is very pricey to not be able to enjoy on you Tv. Wg
Want to pay for a premium subscription to a service and NOT get access? This is the app for you. (Lengthy review but hoping it will save someone time, effort and MONEY) The first time I subscribed to this app, it was a nightmare. I paid for my subscription, was charged almost IMMEDIATELY and never received access. Thought it was a glitch, figured I’d get my money back if I’m charged twice (I only did the monthly pro which is 10 bucks). Subscribed again through my Apple ID settings (first time was through the app, but same window pops up). No access, charged 10 bucks again. I somehow managed to subscribe eventually, I had the app for about 2-3 months, mid-pandemic. It works “ok”, not great. The streaming is a bit wonky at times. Loading can be an issue. I mirror my iPhone to my TV to watch and you can never get the little bar on the bottom that indicates “scrolling up” for apps. So when they show driver stats, tire wear updates, etc. on the bottom, I can NEVER see what they’re showing. Frustrating but not the end of the world. The fast forwarding/rewinding could use a revamp. Definitely not user friendly. I decided to renew recently and so I did. I was charged again, which was fine as I decided to not use the app for until 2 days passed after my charge. After I confirmed my subscription 2 days later, I tried to rewatch the Germany race and was told I needed to subscribe to watch. I’ve attempted to contact them through the Contact Us option on the app (that is very clearly shown when you open the sidebar menu) and nothing. I eventually found an email after navigating a bit and have emailed on both occasions, both recent and farther past, and never received a response. Customer service is just as good as their subscription service. This app is full of nightmares and frustration. Until they decide to give this a legit overhaul, I mean OVERHAUL, I would stay away. Star far far FAR away from this app.
I was only able to watch live racing the past 7 years so going back as far as 1981 I have been able to learn about the greate racers of the past. I am now midway through 1989. My iPad app however as I write this review is using invisible ink so I can not view what I am typing.
The app works but that’s the best thing I can say about it. A “resume watching” would be great. Instead you have to remember where you left off watching and try to scroll to the right time. Also a forward and rewind 15 seconds would be really nice too. Just some small ideas most streaming service have now a days.
I’ve been using this app for about a month, and it’s enjoyable when it works well. When it doesn’t, is when there is a “subscription error” in the middle of a race. I also dislike the home bar at the bottom of the screen, which shifts everything up and I can’t read the top/bottom of the screen. The multi screen does a great job, if I could maybe flip flop without having to reset it every time would also be pretty cool. The archives are incredible, truly amazing to be able to watch nearly any race I’d like. I’ll likely resubscribe, but I definitely would if some final touches were made.
It doesn’t feel like the designers of this app are actually F1 fans. The app is esthetically pleasing but actual user interface and experience are poor. The interface is cumbersome and requires familiarity with the app to locate the race day feed or to replay the race. Most of us just care about the race and if we missed the race we want to replay it. When it comes to replay the video player does not have a timer or easily managed scrubber bar. If you stop watching a race and come back it doesn’t recall where you left off and navigating with the scrubber to that exact spot is difficult. Just lots of little touches missing and not intuitive unless you use the app frequently.
Many technical issues. I cannot watch race replay as the app is asking me too subscribe despite being logged in and having f1 tv pro subscription. Waste of money
Was a great app for maybe a month and I don’t know if something bugged out in the billing system or what but now i’m unable to watch any races and i’m being shown the message “must upgrade to premium subscription” when I already have the most expensive subscription. When you go to the ‘Contact Us’ tab it redirects you to FAQ’s with no contact info. Seems like they want to avoid customer service completely until a bad review is left. Really glad I woke up at the crack of dawn the last 2 weeks on a sunday for absolutely no reason at all.
Watching on iPhone and computer. No easy way to rewind or fast forward. Also no rewind option during the live race. And only 2 extra split-screens available for onboard cameras. Most annoying thing about the app is that the onboard cameras and the live race feed aren’t sync’d, so when you split screen, say an onboard camera and the live race stream, the two streams are several seconds out of sync. It makes the split screen feature useless. The app is def not worth the money. Might as well just pay for Sling or ESPN instead, save yourself the money and get the same functionality.
