It’s time to get excited, race fans, because the 2024 Formula 1 season is here at last. F1 has been enjoying a bit of a cultural awakening here in The States over the past few years, do in no small part to its fierce competition, big personalities, juicy drama and most importantly, ridiculously fast cars. What’s not to love? This year, the season starts in Bahrain on February 29 and will run for 10 months, concluding in Abu Dhabi on December 8.

Despite the recent upswell of excitement around the sport, frustratingly, there’s still a bit of a barrier when it comes to simply figuring out where and when to watch it. Somehow, it’s still more difficult than it should be to find all the information you need for each event in one single place, so hopefully this list can help you zero in on when each event is and the best way to tune in. It includes practice, qualifying, sprint qualifying and, of course, the races.

How to stream Formula 1 Grand Prix in Las Vegas

Now that we’ve tackled the “when,” it’s time to get into the “how.” Naturally, there are tons of options available for “cable” streaming/cord-cutting these days, but here are some of our favorites that will allow you to watch either most or all F1 events on the docket this year. This is mostly for people who want a little something more than just the standard F1 TV Pro subscription, but of course, that’s always an option too. Here are some of your best options.

b3d2c8d0 ca89 11ee 9bfd 4c453687f109

$10.99 per month

F1 TV is almost certainly the most popular option for the diehards out there. With the TV Pro subscription, you can watch every race, practice, qualification and sprint live or on demand. Not only that, it comes with perks like being able to switch to live onboard cameras and hear team radio and provides streams to F2, F3 and Porsche Supercup races, too. If you don’t need to watch the races live and are content with replays, you can save a bunch of money by subscribing to the TV Access subscription instead, which gives users access to on demand replays and over 650 historic races stored in the archives. Although you can’t watch the races live with the lower-priced TV Access subscription, you will still have access to live leaderboard and telemetry data.

SlingTV Orange + Sports Extra – $51 per month ($31 for your first month)

e600fd30 bea1 11ed 9d1f 396294ff3066

$51 per month at SlingTV

This combo package is probably the best all-around deal to allow users to watch every single F1 event of the season. The SlingTV Orange package ($40 per month) on its own will get you access to ESPN, ESPN2 and even ESPN3, but adding the Sports Extra package drops ESPNEWS and ESPNU into the mix as well (plus others like NBA TV, NHL Network, MLB Network and many more) for an extra $11 per month. That takes care of all of the ESPN options you’ll need, but you’ll still need access to ABC for a few of the races. Since ABC is a local channel, not “cable,” the best way to tune into these events is with an HD antenna, which we’ll have a separate recommendation for below, but the nice thing about this SlingTV offer is that when you subscribe, they’ll actually sent you an HD antenna for free. Perhaps the best part about this deal is that if you’re not liking the service, you can cancel at any time. The biggest downside to this deal is that only one device can stream at a time, but if you’re just looking for a way to watch the races, it’s a very solid option. 

Hulu + Live TV, ESPN+ and Disney+ (with ads) – $76.99 per month

ec550a20 bea9 11ed 9db7 ada51a4e3cb4

$76.99 per month at Hulu

Hulu + Live TV is a tried and tested solution to cutting the cord and this bundle will give you everything you need to enjoy every one of the F1 events this season, plus a whole lot of extras. Not only does this bundle include ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNEWS and ESPNU, it also gives you access to local channels like ABC as part of the package (though this may be dependent on location, so be sure to double check using the “view channels in your area” tool before subscribing) and the big bonus is that it also includes ESPN+ and even Disney+. It’s a bit more expensive than the Sling solution, but the perks are likely worth the extra cost for many.

Fubo Pro + Sports Plus with NFL Redzone –  $90.98 per month ($79.99 + $10.99 per month for Sports Plus)

9a2d09a0 c1ce 11ed 8fbf eb71090e30ea

$90.98 per month at Fubo.tv

This Fubo combo is a bit more expensive than the options above, but it comes with a ton of extra channels (181 total, to be exact). The base Fubo subscription is $79.99 per month, and that’ll get you access to ABC, ESPN and ESPN2, but if you want to watch the F1 events on ESPNU and ESPNEWS you’ll need to pick up the Sports Plus with NFL Redzone add-on for an additional $10.99. The add-on includes those two channels plus extras like NBA TV, NFL Redzone, NHL Network, MLB Network, Strikezone, the Tennis Channel and more. Fubo also includes 1,000 hours of cloud DVR space at no extra cost, so it’ll be a long while before you run out of space for recordings.

2023 Gesobyte Amplified HD Digital TV Antenna (Grey) – $29.90

b46fe660 beaf 11ed bfd7 55bba68e1fb7

$29.90 at Amazon

If you already have a solution for watching ESPN but you’re looking for a way to watch your local ABC channel, then an HD antenna is what you need. This one picks up signals within a 200 mile range and will receive channels like ABC, CBS, NBC, PBC, FOX and more. It utilizes tech that filters out both cellular and FM signals, which should help it deliver a clearer picture than some other options. It comes with an 18 foot long coaxial cable and USB power adapter and the manufacturer states that “if you have problems with our HDTV Antenna, just contact us at any time and we will provide a full replacement or refund.”
