Spanish Grand Prix Live: How to watch the race online and on TV
Sky has managed to secure exclusive live broadcast rights to the Spanish Grand Prix, so it’s the only place you’ll be legitimately able to watch the Grand Prix on tele in the UK this weekend. However, Channel 4 will be showing highlights later in the day.
You’ll even be able to watch the race in 4K if you’ve got the right Sky subscription, along with a 4K-ready TV and a 2TB Sky Q box.
The entire race will be shown on Sky Channel 408, and there’ll be additional driver cam viewpoints available using Sky’s Race Control feature – accessed via the Red Button. This also gives you access to the pitman channel, a driver tracker, and an up-to-date timing page.
If you’d rather watch the race on mobile, you can check out the Sky Go app, which is available on both iOS or Android. Alternatively, you can watch it via your web browser too.
If you haven’t got a Sky subscription, your best bet is to watch the race highlights on Channel 4. You can catch this online via the All 4 service. You can also watch it on mobile using the All 4 app for both iOS and Android:
