The platform has been updated for the new F1 season in order fo focus on performance and quality, featuring an enhanced underlying platform, higher video quality and improved user experience.
The updated platform is already available on F1TV.com, and upgrades will be rolled out on iOS, Android, Amazon Fire tablet devices and Roku in the first half of the season.

The platform’s enhancements includes an update to its streaming speeds. Fans can now watch races at 1080p at 50fps for the first time – which F1 TV says is ideal for watching fast moving action.
Othee enhancements include the ability to cast F1 TV to the viewer’s TV using Chromecast and AirPlay (iOS), as well as an improved interface allows fans to easily switch between F1 TV’s multiple additional streams: Pit Lane Channel, Data Channel, Driver Tracker and On-board Cameras.
