The arrival of Sky's dedicated Formula 1 channel means more in-depth coverage of the world's biggest races than ever before. Sign up for Sky F1 and you'll get coverage of every single race in the calendar. And you'll get all the qualifying, as well as up-to-the-minute news and expert analysis too.
Do I need to be a Sky customer to get Sky F1?
Not at all. As well as Sky subscribers, Virgin Media, BT and TalkTalk customers can all add Sky F1 to their package.
One thing worth remembering, however, is that you cannot take Sky F1 or Sky F1 HD as a standalone product. The channel is only available when you sign up for the complete suite of Sky's sports channels.
Sky F1 HD
As the name suggests, Sky F1 HD is a high definition channel. That means you'll get the same in-depth coverage, but with sharper picture quality.
There is a catch, though. Sky F1 HD is only available when you add Sky's HD pack to your bundle for an extra £5 per month.
Watching Sky F1 on the go
Add Sky F1 to your TV package and you'll be able to watch races on your tablet, laptop or smartphone with the Sky Go app. This is available for the iPhone and iPad, as well as select Android tablets and smartphones.
Provided you're signed up to Sky, Sky Go is free to use too and means you can enjoy the Formula 1 season wherever you are. All you have to ensure is that you're in range of a good 3G or Wi-Fi connection.
Sky Sports F1 Race Control Explained
Sky Sports F1 Race Control puts you in the driving seat. Almost literally.

Available by pressing the red button on your remote, Race Control also lets you get up and close and personal with what's going on in the pitlane and catch-up with highlights from the races too.
