Online Streaming

If you subscribe to BeinSport or TrueVisions, you should also be able to watch it directly from their website.

Please note that there are geo-restrictions if you watch these broadcasters from abroad, so you will need a VPN for it.

Watch Formula 1 Online for Free

If you do not want to subscribe to these paid services, you can watch F1 from these broadcasters for free. But you still need to use a VPN service to bypass geo-restriction.


  • ABC: USA (English commentary)
  • RTBF: Belgium (French commentary)*
  • ServusTV: Austria (German commentary)*
  • 10play: Australia (English commentary – Australia GP only)
  • Channel 4: UK (English commentary – British GP only)

You can turn on BBC Radio’s live coverage to listen to English commentary.

In order to bypass geo-restrictions, the easiest way is to use a VPN service.

This year, Surfshark has a special promotion for F1 enthusiasts. Prices start at only US$2.49 a month, and you can watch all races from your favorite channels.

With a VPN, you can watch F1 from anywhere in the world.

What you need to do is subscribe to their service, install an app, choose a server, and go to a broadcaster’s website. That’s it.

In addition to Surfshark, you can use NordVPN and ExpressVPN.

We don’t recommend using any free VPN service because of speed limits and security loopholes.

Sports Bar

If you do not want to watch Formula 1 2024 online at home, you can watch it at many sports clubs throughout Thailand.

These sports clubs regularly stream F1 2024 on weekends. As long as the match doesn’t happen at the same time as the English Premier League, chances are they will stream F1 there.

So, before heading there, you should contact them in advance to make sure they really stream F1 by the time you are there.

Below is a list of popular sports pubs that regularly stream Formula 1. If you know any sports pubs that should be added to this list, please let us know.
