F1 Broadcast Stays On Foxtel and Kayo

Foxtel have announced a multi-year extension that will keep Formula One (F1) exclusive to the pay-TV service and streaming platform, Kayo.

The deal will see all practices, qualifying sessions, and races broadcast live without interruptions on Foxtel and Kayo.

Additionally, next season will see the integration of a new innovative platform onto Foxtel set top boxes, F1TV, which features access to multiple live in-race feeds, comprehensive live timing data, highlights and exclusive programming on and off the track.

Commenting on the deal, Foxtel Group chief executive officer, Patrick Delany, said: “This new partnership with Formula 1 takes our coverage to the next level for fans and together with Supercars and MotoGP, confirms Foxtel and Kayo as the home of the very best in Australian and international motorsport.”

“Australian fans are embracing F1 like never before with F1 delivering the fastest audience growth of any sport across Foxtel and Kayo.

“Kayo, in particular, has absolutely super-charged audience growth with younger audiences and each Grand Prix now regularly sees in excess of 200,000 fans streaming on Kayo,” he said.

Commenting on Foxtel’s F1 coverage, F1 CEO, Stefano Domenicali, said during an exclusive media event announcing the partnership extension, Foxtel’s comprehensive coverage in Australia brings the excitement of F1 to new audiences and dedicated fans.

F1 director of media rights and content creation, Ian Holmes, also said: “We’re delighted to be extending and expanding our partnership with the Foxtel Group so that our fans in Australia can continue to enjoy comprehensive Formula One coverage, and the integration of the F1TV app for subscribers will provide even more access to the sport than ever before.”

“Foxtel are a great partner for Formula One, as we share the same passion to innovate and deliver spectacular racing to our fanbase.

“Fans are becoming increasingly engaged with F1 and such audience growth, in particular among younger fans, shows that the appetite for Formula One in Australia is huge.

“This is not just a testament to the thrilling nature of Formula One as a sport, but also a result of the Foxtel Group’s efforts in delivering that excitement to viewers,” Holmes said.

The announcement comes a day after the Formula One Australian Grand Prix announced a three-year partnership with Brisbane-based spirits brand, Idle Hour Vodka, who will be the official vodka partner of the event.
