How to Stream Formula 1 on Sling TV

Sling TV was the first live TV streaming service, and it remains the cheapest TV subscription to carry ESPN. It’s also extremely customizable, which means you can get rid of more TV channels you don’t like and get more channels that you do.

Sling TV starts with a base plan for $40.00/mo:

  • Sling Orange: 30+ channels, including the Disney Channel, ESPN, and MotorTrend. 1 live stream at a time.
  • Sling Blue: 40+ channels, including NBC and Fox (in select markets), Fox Sports 1 (FS1), USA Network, and the NFL Network. Streams to up to 3 devices at a time.

Or you can get Sling Orange + Blue, which is both plans together for 50+ channels, and 4 streams at a time, all for $55.00/mo.

All plans come with 50 hours of cloud DVR storage, upgradable to 200, and thousands of hours of on-demand titles.

To watch Formula One, Orange is an absolute must. It’s true that one stream at a time is lame, but that’s how Sling TV manages to be the cheapest (by far) to carry the ESPN channels.

If you really want to be able to watch on multiple devices/TVs, you can go with Orange + Blue. Just bear in mind that the Orange-only channels (like ESPN) are still restricted to just one stream at a time. So, you can watch ESPN and NFL Network at the same time, but not ESPN and ESPN2.

Orange will get you all the main Grands Prix on Sundays, and a lot of the practice/qualifying events, the majority of which are on ESPN and ESPN2. But some practices and qualifying races are on ESPNews, which is in the Sports Extra, an add-on for $11/mo ($15/mo if you have Orange + Blue).

The Sports Extra provides 10-17 more sports channels, depending on your base plan.

The Sling TV app is available on a variety of devices, including web browsers, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Android Mobile, Android TV, Apple TV, LG TVs, Samsung TVs, Vizio TVs, iPad/iPhone, and Xbox gaming systems. It’s one of the widest device support bases around.
