Where to Watch the 2023 F1 Championship in Australia

The 2023 Formula One World Championship begins in Bahrain in early March and ends in Abu Dhabi in late November. A record 23 Grands Prix will be staged, including the first Las Vegas Grand Prix on November 18.

Fox Sports (Foxtel/Kayo) exclusively broadcasts all 23 Formula One races in 2023 due to a long-term arrangement. The lone exception is that Network Ten will broadcast the Australian Grand Prix live on both stations 10 and 10 Play.

Channel Ten showed Formula One highlights on free-to-air TV after every race last year, but the network hasn’t announced if they will again in 2023. The channel 10 TV guide will be revised if the network keeps presenting these one-hour highlight packages on Monday nights after the F1 event.

Fox Sports (Foxtel/Kayo) will broadcast every F1 practise, qualifying, and Grand Prix live without ads. From March’s Bahrain Grand Prix through November’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Fox Sports Australia will air 23 championship weekends.

Fox Sports will also show full replays of each practice, qualifying race, and the Grand Prix itself, both right after they end and at different times during the next week. Fox Sports doesn’t just show Formula One races; they also show a lot of F2 and F3 races and have shows that talk about the races before and after they happen.

In Australia, you can watch Formula One on Fox Sports in a number of ways, such as through Foxtel, Foxtel Now, Telstra, and Kayo Sports. Fans of Formula One who want to try out these services can do so for free right now with Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports. There is a lot to take in, so the next parts of this guide will go into more detail about which of these choices might be best for you.

Will F1 TV Pro be available to watch or stream in 2023?

After much anticipation, fans learned whether or not F1 TV Pro would be made accessible for viewing or streaming in Australia. Absolutely, yes! Foxtel and their streaming partner, Kayo Sports, have recently announced that they would begin using F1 TV Pro in their coverage of the Formula One season. F1 TV Pro will provide subscribers with exclusive shows centred on the Formula 1 experience as well as more Grand Prix coverage, live timing data, an archive of past races available on-demand, and more. This article will be revised to incorporate all the pertinent information once the official launch of F1 TV Pro on Foxtel and Kayo.

What TV channel is F1 on in Australia? 

Formula 1 fans in Australia can watch all of the action during the 2023 season on Fox Sports. Still, Network Ten is allowed to show the Australian Grand Prix live and for free on both channels 10 and 10 Play.

How to live stream F1 in Australia

Through Foxtel and Telstra, Australians will be able to watch all 23 F1 races in 2023. Fox Sports is in charge of the streaming service, which will also show every practise and qualifying session. During the 2023 Formula One season, Kayo Sports will also show all of the action in Australia.

Stream every F1 race live with Kayo Sports

With Kayo, you can live stream the F1 World Championship to devices and browsers that are compatible and watch the same F1 broadcasts as Foxtel. Kayo Minis offers a recap on demand after practise, qualifying, or the Grand Prix for fans who want to catch up on the action that happened late at night or early in the morning. This is for races that happen in time zones that aren’t too inconvenient.

Other unique features of Kayo Sports include access to telemetry data, a pit lane channel, and cockpit cameras, as well as the F1 RaceView feature, which uses their SplitView technology to show different camera angles.

When F1 TV Pro is made available by Foxtel, Kayo will also add it. The innovative race feeds, live maps, and special camera settings of F1 TV Pro will completely change the way you watch Formula One. F1 TV Pro will also have new Formula One shows, documentaries, and a large library of Grand Prix races from the past.

The best part is that if you’ve never used Kayo Sports before, you could get a 7-day free trial during which you can watch everything for free, including your favourite events. Kayo doesn’t have a lock-in contract or equipment fees, so you can cancel it at any time if you decide you no longer need it. If you want to keep using Kayo after your trial is over, all you have to do is choose either the Basic or Premium subscription.

Watch every F1 race live online with Foxtel Now

Foxtel or Foxtel Now are other options for Australian fans to watch Formula One World Championship racing. Through its Sports Pack, the streaming service Foxtel Now gives users access to every sport on Foxtel. This entitles you to view all of Foxtel’s live and recorded sporting events, including Formula One as well as all other available motorsports including F2, F3, MotoGP, and V8 Super Cars.

You can test it out for ten days for free, after which you’ll have to pay for both the Sports Pack and the Essentials Pack because they are sold together. Foxtel Now offers the opportunity to stream live sports through the Foxtel Go app while you’re away from home in addition to being internet-connected.

Foxtel will also start offering F1 TV Pro in about a month. This will give viewers a unique way to watch the races, with telemetry data, team radio access, live driver maps, and multiple race feeds and camera options. Users of Foxtel IQ will be able to get F1 TV Pro as a separate app. This is probably also true for Foxtel Now subscribers, but the details have not been made public yet.

Watch every Formula One race live with Telstra

With Telstra’s latest sports streaming deal, Telstra Plus customers can watch Formula One. Kayo Basic costs $17.50 per month for 12 months for Silver Telstra Plus members and $12.50 per month for Gold Telstra Plus members.

For just $20 per month over a 12-month period, Gold Telstra Plus customers and Silver Telstra Plus members can join up for the $35 per month Kayo Premium plan, respectively. Users of Kayo One must switch to Kayo Basic in order for the Kayo Telstra offer to function.

You will only need to pay $29 for the sports bundle because the first month of the Foxtel Now Telstra offer is free. The 12-month contracts for both of these choices are ideal for a full Formula One World Championship season.

Watch select F1 Highlights on Channel 10

Channel ten will only be permitted to show one Formula One event live due to a long-term broadcasting deal between Foxtel and Network Ten; that race will be the Australian Grand Prix, the third round on the championship circuit this year. This arrangement is comparable to Ten’s MotoGP coverage, where the public broadcaster was successful in obtaining TV rights to the 2023 Motorcycle Grand Prix at Phillip Island, thanks in large part to Australia’s anti-siphoning rules.

However, Channel Ten, through 10 Bold and 10 Play, was able to gain the rights to broadcast Formula One racing highlights. These highlights will be featured in a one-hour TV package that will appear on the Monday evening after that weekend’s Grand Prix. It’s probable that this option won’t be available because Channel Ten hasn’t yet said whether they would offer these highlights in 2023.
