Honestly this app is amazing. I’m a huge F1 fan and I have always wanted to rewatch the races and watch shows and documentaries and this app gives you all of that for only $3 a month. Imagine every race, team radios, data, onboard cameras for every car, unlimited shows and documentaries and so much more only for 3 bucks? Oh I forgot to mention F2 races a well. There’s no reason not to have F1 TV. At the end of the day this is the best F1 app out there it doesn’t get better than this.
I’m beginning, please make F1 TV available for Apple TV.
This is the only streaming app I’m aware of that does not support things like chromecast or Airplay. This is a massive let down since there’s so much content on the app that is locked to only thing watchable on the phone/tablet.
Great content hobbled by intentional limitations. Sure you can watch races and other content, but F1 TV is from the era of broadcast TV: (1) no playback controls, (2) app doesn’t remember what show/event you’re watching, (3) doesn’t remember your progress, (4) what few controls there are work very poorly on iPad. Oh, and (5) no Airplay support. (You can only screen mirror because they can’t get around this Apple feature) The shoddy app doesn’t make up for the exclusive content. If you can stream ESPN and have a dvr (or YouTube TV), then you get a better viewing and playback experience for all the GP events each week.
Frustrating to pay for something that doesn’t work well. When trying to navigate when playing, you cannot select the play head. The touch area is too small, you can’t scrub backwards or forwards. When watching an archive, you often tap “exit” when you try to navigate anywhere on the timeline near the lower left side. It doesn’t take much to smooth out these issues. For the amount of money and attention to detail in the sport, its a shame this app has as many problems as it does. Please fix!
App needs support for streaming devices like airplay and Chromecast
Although F1’s content keeps getting better, this app has been in a technological backwater since they launched it years ago. It fails to comply with modern iOS conventions, is glacially slow, and lacks even the most rudimentary streaming video controls. Formula 1 is a sport and brand focused on cutting edge tech. Why do they let their app drag down the rest of their brand? Investing in the app is investing in your fans.
The interface is clunky and slow. The quality of the video is sub par(720p at most) which in 2020 is really low. Constantly crashing and changing the time stamp. And you can’t save your place in a race, if you start one then put it away it just takes you back to the beginning which is a pain in the butt
New fan and the subscription has helped me catch up and learn the history of the sport. Would be much easier if I didn’t have to mirror to the Apple TV
I love this app, I use it on almost every race weekend, and I also use it to watch old races. The one problem that I have is that whenever I go to see the 2020 races I see all the races up until Germany. I don’t see any races beyond Germany. Other than that it’s a great app.
