How to watch F1 2023: all the methods
There are many ways to watch F1 2023, some forms are legal and paid, others are free. Within the latter there are legal and illegal ones, although from this web page we do not encourage the use of pirate methods, in addition to warning from now on that the quality and benefits that you will get with them is much lower than the legal methods...
The large DAZN streaming platform, has become a Netflix of sport. It offers a multitude of sports at the moment, but they want more. Formula 1 is very juicy, and could not be missing from its sports catalog. If you want to watch F1, DAZN is one of the most recommended options.
The new platform already had Moto GP, and now adds this category, staying with the two most watched motor sports. DANZ has a huge sports package that includes football, tennis, motorbikes, boxing, basketball, and much more, as well as other motor categories... All in HD. And the prices for this year, which have risen, are as follows:
Commentators will continue to be the same as Movistar+ F1, since Antonio Lobato and Cristobal Rosaleny follow, and the regulars: the engineer Toni Cuquerella and the ex-pilot Pedro Martinez de la Rosa (when he can escape his duties as Aston Martin ambassador). Albert Fabrega and Melissa Jiménez will also return from the circuits, and Noemí de Miguel from the set as presenter and substitute for Nira Juanco, the latter will be part of the DAZN F1 team as director in this case.
All the action starts now from March 5 with the new F1 2023 season. In addition, you will also have information about the pre-season tests, from February 23 to 25 in Bahrain. In other words, uninterrupted activity every day with current races, reports, interviews, documentaries, historical races, and much more...
In addition, they offer 1 month free trial without any kind of commitment.
How to watch F1 2023 on mobile
DAZN can be followed from the comfort of your Smart TV, installing the official app available for the main platforms, such as the WebOS operating systems for LG TVs, or TizenOS for Samsung, as well as other TVs (and Android TV boxes) based on Android.
Of course, you can also follow F1 2023 from mobile devices, such as tablets or smartphones. Thus, if you are traveling or you are away from home, you can follow the World Cup without losing detail. To do this, you can install the app on your mobile for free:
If you already have a subscription, you will not have to pay another fee to watch it from your mobile. Your same username and password will also be used for the mobile app without extra costs. Again, you can also enjoy 1 month for free if you sign up today.
In Spain, the exclusivity of F1 2020 was Telefonica-Movistarbut now that has changed. DAZN has taken over the exclusivity of Formula 1 in Spain, breaking that "monopoly" of this OTT platform to offer yet another alternative. However, they have made an agreement with DAZN to be able to broadcast this content too.
In other words, the agreement they have reached with Movistar does not terminate them being able to offer Formula 1 and Moto GP (with this agreement he returns) through his platform. Therefore, this year Movistar+ will continue to broadcast the channel DAZN 1 (dial 59) and DAZN 2 (dial 60) so that those who have a contract with this telecommunications company can continue as before, enjoying the races.
In short, Movistar+ users will be able to enjoy the same content that DAZN users will see, at least until the end of 2023, at which time the agreement expires and we will see if Movistar renews or if they run out of these motorsport competitions.
F1 TV Pro and F1 TV Access
Liberty Media has been with its official streaming service to see the F1 World Cup 2023 and get all the necessary information about this sport. This platform is available in several countries, with access to content in Spanish, French, German, and English, access to GPS to follow the cars around the circuit, map, 20 cameras of the 20 drivers to choose what you want to see at any time .
La F1 TV Access app and F1 TV Pro It is available from the web version, to be able to see it from any device that has a compatible web browser, but it is also available on platforms such as Amazon, Google Play, Apple TV, and the App Store.
All for a subscription quite affordable, which also includes talk shows and pre- and post-race specials. The price without advertising is about €6.5 to €9.8 per month. And for that you will also have access to content from other categories such as Formula 2, GP3, Porsche SuperCup. But unfortunately, the exclusivity that Movistar now maintains due to the contract signed with Liberty prevents this type of alternative from competing in Spain.
Watch F1 through the official The Dream VR app
Liberty Media wants to change F1, and with an alliance they made with The Dream VR, you can also bet on streaming in a different way. The Spanish virtual reality firm has reached an incredible agreement to allow F1 2023 to be seen in an amazing way, with access to 360º videos thanks to the technology of virtual reality glasses.
The service is available at More than 180 countries, with a simple app in which you can immerse yourself in the starting grid, be "present" at the podium celebration, or get on the fastest laps of the weekend, and even visit the paddock, garages, etc. That is to say, almost as if you were present, but without being...perhaps a good idea with the one that is falling with the coronavirus and that does not seem to stop with the vaccination.
However, at the moment it is a limited service, and it is not exclusive to F1, but it issues part of the calendar of season races and other sports. But it can be a great option for the future...
Watch F1 for free using IPTV or satellite dishes
Leaving payment methods behind, other options that exist to watch F1 2023 and not miss anything go through using IPTV or satellite services. In this case, they can be both legal and illegal methods, everything will depend on what your ethics limit you to do.
Conclusion legal if you use IPTV, both with apps such as SSIPTV, Smart IPTV, Kodi, VLC, etc., with lists of channels that broadcast freely and for free. Another option is to do the same, but using a satellite receiver that broadcasts free-to-air. For example, you can capture channels from countries where it is broadcast free-to-air, such as Germany, etc., and thus be able to watch F1 2023 even if it is not in Spanish.
But you can also do it as illegal if you use IPTV services or satellite television decoders to capture pay channels that broadcast an encrypted signal (such as Movistar's pirate signal). With these methods you can intercept the signal and decode it so you can see it. Although the results may not be the best, with some possible cuts and not working all the time.
As from AM we do not incite to do illegal things, here I show you a list of channels that they have the rights to F1 2023 and that they broadcast openly and for free, and that you can capture through IPTV or through satellite receivers with a dish:
|Channel 4 UK||Ireland||English|
|ABC||Puerto Rico||English Spanish|
|Channel 4||United Kingdom||English|
How to use IPTV through Kodi
There is software to implement Media Centers such as Kodi, LibreELEC, etc to be able to use IPTV by adding a series of channel lists. With Kodi we can have a large number of channel lists thanks to the lists and addons that can be added. With them, their capabilities can be extended to add new functionalities, although if we opt for payment channels, we again incur something illegal or at least illegal, such as the field of IPTV. The authorities cannot report users, although they can the providers of these services that allow you to watch F1 for free...
Kodi is one of the best known implement a Media Center on the computer or device where we install it. The good of Kodi It is the large number of addons, that is, of complements that it has. With them, its capabilities can be extended to add new features and channel lists, including thematic channels cataloged by categories from which we can watch F1 for free among other sports. Also, if you have the opportunity to connect the device where Kodi is installed to your TV with an HDMI cable, you will be able to watch it on a bigger screen and comfortably from your living room.
Another advantage of Kodi, apart from the fact that it is free and is in Spanish, is that it is multiplatform, so it works on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS (iPhone and iPad), Android, GNU/Linux, Apple TV OS, BSD operating systems and of course on your Raspberry Pi. Therefore, it covers a wide range of systems. And the only thing you will have to worry about is installing Kodi by downloading it from the official website if you use a computer, or from the iOS or Android App Store.
Once installed, you can start install plugins from Kodi. To do this, download the addons, and from Kodi go to System, Settings and then click on Addons and you can find either an addon search engine (although only those that are in the database appear), or an option to Install from ZIP, which is the one you must select to install from the ZIP you downloaded. Once installed, you can watch the channels from the video option in the main menu and then click on Add-ons.
The interesting addons are:
- adrienlist: allows you to add a wide list of thematic channels, among which you will find sections of series, movies, sports, etc. If you go to sports, you can find the Sky Sport F1 channel (in English), from where you can watch F1.
- Plexus: it is advisable to install the Plexus addon that complements the previous one, otherwise you will have problems. Thanks to Plexus you can watch p2p channels through Sopcast and AceStream. To install it you have to go to the PROGRAMS section of Kodi and after selecting it, everything that is needed for it to work correctly will be downloaded.
- acestream y Sopcast: two interesting modules from which you will be able to watch channels, such as those from the sports category, if you have previously installed Plexus.
- Catholic: with it you will be able to see a multitude of Latin channels, as well as other international channels, DTT from Spain, France, and channels by categories such as sports, music, documentaries, etc.
With this you have enough to see all kinds of content, including F1. And one last recommendation, always have the librtmp library updated to the latest version, since otherwise you will find some problems when playing the content of the servers that provide the video.
The biggest drawbackWell, if we opt for certain lists of pay channels, IPTV usually has SD quality in some cases, and in the best of them HD. Also, if the video buffer is not large enough or our connection is not several megabytes of speed, the video can be cut off. On the other hand, for everything to work, you have to follow the existing manuals on the Internet to put everything you need on your site and update the lists periodically or they will stop working in some cases.
Listen F1 2023
If you don't want to pay for F1 2023, and you don't mind not being able to see it, another option is to listen to it. Yes, listen to her. In fact, some websites have their YouTube channels where they broadcast their Podcasts live during the race, listening to what is happening.
In addition to that, there are also some radio stations that do their programs about F1 to listen to what is happening. A good way to find out what's happening while you're travelling, or from an app on your mobile, MP4 player with integrated radio, etc. In Spain, the radios in which you can listen to this sport are:
- SER chain: You can listen to narrations by Jorge Escorial and José Antonio Ponseti. With commentators like Isaac Prada, Xavier Saisó, Andrea Zanoni, etc. They even have their envoys to the paddock like Mela Chércoles and Manu Franco.
- Onda Cero: This other radio station also has Rafael Fernández and Alberto Pereiro as narrators, with commentators such as Joan Villadelprat, Oscar Lango, Jacobo Vega, Pipo López, Paco Martín, or David Alonso. In the boxes they have the reporter Gonzalo Palafox.
- COPE chain: Another option is to listen to the narrations of Carlos Miquel, with varied commentators.
- Radio Brand: another of the possibilities in Spanish by Carlos Santos and Pablo Juanarena. With commentators like Cristóbal Rosaleny, among others.
If you are outside of Spain, or want more alternatives to listen to F1 2023 on the radio and in Spanish, then you also have these Latin American options, like the one in Argentina with ESPN.
You already know that you can tune into these radio stations your fm radio, or from various mobile apps, computers, and other platforms that support this type of option.
Beyond F1 2023: A much brighter future for fans
La exclusivity of Movistar in Spain was leaving out many fans who wanted to enjoy the content but could not for various reasons. Either because they were happy with their current Internet package and did not want to switch to Movistar's fiber services, because fiber did not reach certain rural areas, or because they simply could not afford to pay the prices of the entire package. of this service.
Now with the arrival of DAZN all users with an Internet connection will be able to enjoy the content for a modest price from anywhere. Without the barriers that existed before, in addition, this agreement will be at least until 2023, although DAZN could renew this exclusivity if it sees fit...
F1 TV and F1 TV Pro
(see the previous section on this official service)
This seems to have hinted LibertyMedia, the current owners of the rights to Formula 1. They consider that the more parties that bid for the rights, the greater the profits they will achieve. They don't seem to like those rights with exclusivity so that only one operator can bid, as it's taking away other potential buyers or revenue streams.
But it is that in addition to its streaming service F1 TV and F1 TV Pro, and other OTT services that have flourished, the owners want something more. The current CEO of the company Greg Maffei assures that: «If we bet on free television, we'll probably grow our endorsement earnings faster. If we bet on the payment platforms, they will probably increase significantly from broadcasting income, but they will see sponsorship income threatened.«.
If that desire to earn income leads them to pressure and bet preferably on television stations that broadcast free and open, it is likely that in the future, channels such as Telecinco, Antena 3 or La Sexta will be able to broadcast this sport again.
Methods that no longer work
There are other alternatives not recommended, some of them no longer work for F1 2023, others do so in an erratic way or with questionable quality. For this reason, they tend to generate more frustration and in the end they end up abandoning...
Watch F1 2023 with YouTVPlayer
There is an alternative quite similar to Wiseplay, only in this case we don't have to add lists or anything like that, in addition to the video and audio quality being quite good. I'm talking about an app called YouTVPlayer for Android that you will not find in the Google Play store, but that you can download and install (no olives allow installation of .apk from unknown sources) on our device.
Once installed, it will ask us for a Facebook or email account to register, it is a free registration and after registration we can access the content of the app. Find your favorite channel and you can watch it. Obviously you must do this under your own ethics, as is the case with IPTV, Kodi, Wiseplay, etc., since it is not legal...
TVE to watch the Spanish F1 GP on deferred
El Spanish GP is a special exception, since as you well know, TVE already got the broadcasting rights with agreements with Movistar to be able to broadcast it free of charge and openly through its TV channel in the past (although deferred). Therefore, the race in Montmeló was the only one that we can follow without investing a single euro or opting for other alternatives.
With the current DAZN-Movistar F1 2023 deal, this is likely to happen again this year. «With F1 on DAZN and Movistar+, in addition to a package of open rights already secured, we have a great capacity to reach new audiences and grow sport in Spain", said Ian Holmes, director of F1 rights. So, it is likely that this type of open agreement will be included in that communication…
Mediaset to watch the Spanish F1 GP 2023 open
El Spanish GP It is usually an exception every year, since some chain takes over the rights to broadcast it openly and for free. This is the case of TVE, which has been bidding to obtain the rights of Movistar+ to be able to offer this "home" race.
On the other hand, last year it changed owners, and the one that has taken the cat to the water in the bid is the Mediaset España group, owner of channels such as Telecinco and Four. And it will not be deferred, but open, live and free of charge on one of its channels. Therefore, if you do not have Movistar+ or DAZN, it is another alternative for this race...
This app is very well known and popular to watch football. mobdra It has excellent quality and a wide variety of channels that you can tune in for free. You should not search for lists like in Splive TV, or others. You just have to find the channels, and once tuned you can enjoy them on your mobile devices.
Mobdro is one of the apps that users are most satisfied with. However, it has its drawbacks, since it is not on Google Play, but you must download the .apk from its official website, since was removed from the play store. That is precisely why it is in this section, since being from unreliable sources, it is not well known what it does on your mobile. So you must use it at your own risk.
To View Live TV
ToView Live TV (previously called TVCatchup) is another application that can be used to viewer free-to-air live television in the UK through the computer, phone or tablet, and even from the video game console. The operation is simple, once we have it installed from the app store of our device or in its online version for computer, we can access it and choose the channel we want to see, adjust the quality of the video (according to the speed of our network ) and then see an ad that will give us access to the chosen channel. If we are using the online version from our computer's browser, we can even record TV.
First the app would only be valid for those residing in the UK or for all the citizens there who be out and have a valid license to watch TV in that country. For this, the system will check our IP to see if we truly reside in the country and once verified, it will give us access. Certainly there are methods to bypass this procedure and watch it from any country, but in AM we will not describe this method because it is illegal.
Watch F1 online in Streaming and VPN
You already know that some websites offer content from others streaming channels. Some completely legal and others not so much. For example, broadcast media usually also have online platforms through which they broadcast content legally, the same content that you can see on the respective TV channel. The problem is that many of these media restrict access by geographical area and if we want to see them from another country we will be blocked.
to avoid that we can use a VPN. This will camouflage our IP to prevent the web from detecting that we are from another country. You already know that there are many services to have our VPN, both free and paid. Such as HotSport Shield (for Windows, MacOS, Ios, and Android), or other similar ones (VPN One Click, HideIP VPN, USAIP, ItsHidden,... also for Linux). In the Apple App Store and Google Play you will find several apps for VPN...
On the other hand, we also have more alternatives like the AlphaCentary project and telete.tv website in which we can access and select a channel from among the logos that appear at the top and the video will appear in streaming to be able to see it. Among the channels are some of Movistar TV such as Movistar F1. As to AlphaCentaury is a virtual IPTV decoder to watch Movistar TV channels, that is, it simulates by software the operation of the physical decoder that they give you when you contract Movistar services. Of course it's not legal either, but it works...
Watch F1 with Wiseplay
Wiseplay is an app that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store to install it on our Android device (laptop, tablet, phablet or smartphone). If you search in the Play Store search engine, you will also find other apps that provide links to add to Wiseplay and have lists of channels on different themes. Just like Kodi with its addons, Wiseplay also allows you to watch channels of all kinds, from open DTT channels to other paid ones that can be seen from the app for free.
Companion apps for add channel lists to Wiseplay they are not as interesting as the channel lists that we find online. Therefore I recommend the website forumwise.com where you will find the best channel lists, such as those belonging to Movistar+. You do not need to register, simply access and download the desired list to see the channels in HD. In addition, they are updated daily, to guarantee the operation of the channel, something that Kodi is not guaranteed with addons.
Once Wiseplay is installed from the Google Play Store, we only have to add the list or lists that we want to view. It may not work for you, in fact this one does not work for me ready to watch f1, but you can use Google to find more lists. Here you will find a link or URL to the website where the list is located. Access the website where these links are provided and once there, we will find the real link that we must copy and paste into our Wiseplay app. For example, a link I've tested that works is this one that I leave you here.
To add it, we simply open Wiseplay, click on the + button on the back of the main screen and two options will appear. Add List from QR code or Add List from URL, we will choose the one from the URL. If you click on it, a dialog box appears where you paste or write the address of the channel list and accept with OK. Now a new entry appears on the main screen, which if you click on it you will see the Formula 1 icon on which you can click to see the available videos.
Two last tips, it may ask you to install AcePlayer To view the videos, Wiseplay will directly provide you with the download address and all you have to do is install the .apk. And one last thing, if you're not going to move from home, I recommend using virtualization from a PC if you don't have a device that can be connected via HDMI to your TV. In this way, with an Android emulator or virtualizing the operating system from VirtualBox or VMWare, for example, you can connect your computer that usually has an HDMI connection to your TV to see it on a big screen. Or better yet! The Wiseplay app itself allows you to screencast if you have a smart TV with WiFi, transferring the video directly from your smartphone or tablet to your TV screen.
There are also some alternatives, although they are not as recommended, such as splive Player for Android, with lists of channels to watch, although it can cause problems, so it's not recommended. There is also Acestream, and others. But almost all with the same performance and features...
With all this, this post is updated on the alternatives and possibilities you have to see F1 2023, I hope I've helped, any contribution or comment will be welcome...
