From Max and Lewis to Senna and Prost, F1 has given us plenty of epic rivalries. But watching them play on TV isn’t always easy – F1 coverage can be expensive and subject to regional restrictions.
The good news? The official F1 TV app is spreading its wings around the world, making it easier to watch races whenever you want. You can even watch F1 TV on Roku devices.
In this guide, we look at how you can get an F1 live stream with F1 TV on Roku and start streaming the pinnacle of motorsport right now. You can also check out our full review on Roku’s mid-level 4K streamer, the Roku Premiere, here.
What is F1 TV?
F1 TV is the official streaming service of Formula 1. It has two subscription levels: F1 TV Access (opens in new tab) (the standard plan) and F1 TV Pro (opens in new tab) (the premium plan). With Access you can watch full race replays, F1’s historic race archives, exclusive documentaries, live shows and more.
With Pro you can enjoy all the features of Access and you can follow all GP races live with commentary in five languages.
A special feature that comes with both plans is access to cameras on the F1 cars. You can switch between the main live feed and the cameras present on the 20 cars. The camera-switching feature is available even during replays and can be hugely entertaining – you might even spot a thrilling moment that the commentators miss.
The F1 TV app is available in many countries around the world such as USA, Mexico, Austria and Russia. However, F1 TV Pro is not available everywhere. In some countries, such as Australia and the UK, this plan is not available due to certain commercial agreements.
An F1 TV Access subscription costs $26.99 per year in the US, while an F1 TV Pro subscription costs $79.99. In some countries like India, you will find that F1 TV comes with a 7 days free trial (opens in new tab).

You can use browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge to view the races. F1 TV does not support Opera, UC Browser and Samsung Internet, so some features of the app may not work properly on them.
You can also get F1 TV on Android and iPhone. On Android devices, you need Android OS 7 or later to run the F1 TV app. You need iOS 10 or later on iPhone and iPad, and OS 7 or later on Amazon Fire tablets.
Formula 1 has also kept its word and launched F1 TV on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV devices.
