Well, the 2017 Formula 1 season is already towards the end, but lots of fun is still left. With the last race in the formula one schedule, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix coming up on November 26, let’s see how to watch f1 live online in Australia.
Catch formula one live streaming online
The broadcasting rights to show the races of F1 live in Australia is with Foxtel. Not only for this season but also for 2018 one. So, if you have got a TV subscription to Foxtel, you can use its Foxtel Go service to watch f1 online without any extra cost. You can watch the practice matches, qualifying sessions and of course the main events, all of them.
If you don’t have a TV subscription, you have to register for Foxtel Now. After the registration is successful, you can select the packages you want to use. It does offer the first two weeks for a free trial. Remember to cancel the subscription before the trial ends.
With the subscription to Foxtel Now, you also get to watch live coverage of V8 SuperCars Championship. You can also catch the races later. The service is available on PC/Mac browsers and also on android and iOS devices.
And if you want to catch the F1 streaming for free, head over to a VPN service provider.
Watch Formula 1 streaming free with VPN
There is a host of channels which streams F1 races for free. Some of these are Channel 4 in the UK, ORF in Austria, Rai Play in Italy and SRG broadcasting in Switzerland. You can catch their stream online with most of the Internet-connected devices. But the only problem is that these are geo-restricted to the respective country.
If you try to access Channel 4’s streaming from Australia, for example, you will get an error message that the service is currently not available in this area. The same is the case if you try to stream F1 races through any of those channels.
And according to the reviews, the best VPN Australia has to be ExpressVPN. It has servers for all the regions mentioned above. If one streaming service is unavailable, you can switch to a different server easily.
You won’t have to fumble with different VPN service providers. The server would mask your Australian IP address with an address of the server country.
The price of Express VPN Australia may seem high for budget users, but they give faster speeds than the peers and a high quality of service. There are many free VPN providers too, by the way. But you can never rely on their quality and service.
When live streaming is your requirement, it’s better to take services of the paid ones. They are always safer and more reliable.
The advantage of using a good VPN like ExpressVPN is that if you feel the need to unblock content from other countries, you can connect to a server there and nothing else needs to be done.
