How to Watch Formula 1 Live Online in Australia for Free

In Australia, live F1 coverage is shared between free TV (TEN) and paid TV (FOX) channels. This broadcast agreement‚ is in place until 2018.

TEN‚ have half of the races live. If you want to watch live F1 in Australia for free and it isn't on TEN, then you will have to watch online. click here to read more about Watch Live F1 Online‚ for free‚ to see some options of websites that stream F1.

If you are in Australia you can also watch live F1 via the TEN website (the half of races which are live on TEN). If you do not live in Australia then you cannot watch via‚ the Ten website as it is locked to viewers in Australia only.

The‚ countries which have all of the F1 coverage live for free often allow people in that country to‚ watch‚ live streams on their websites, but not many. There are other not so official websites which you may be able to watch live F1 on, see our list for more info - watch f1 online.

If you are trying to watch an official TV station broadcastwhich is geo-locked (only viewers in that country can view it) then you can use a VPN or proxy to trick their website in to thinking you are in Australia (or the relevant‚ country). These are paid services and they require a tiny bit bit of technical knowledge or confidence.

TEN‚ claim that you can watch live stream online via tenplay‚ though I cannot see the race on their schedule this coming Australian Grand Prix (time of writing Sunday 20th March 2016). I can see qualifying on their Saturday schedule. ‚ For example this is on their schedule for March but I see nothing for Sunday and the race: (But do check for yourself closer to the time of each broadcast)
