Spark Sport Director Jeff Latch says F1® TV Pro is the latest in sports viewing technology, so it made a lot of sense to pair it with Spark Sport.
“F1 TV Pro is a great service allowing fans to switch between channels and views, like Pit Lane Channel, an alternate view from the main stream and a single multi-screen view. Fans can also switch between any of the 20 onboard cameras, giving them unprecedented access to F1 racing – seeing the action exactly as the drivers see it at 320 km / h.
“We are delighted to be able to give Spark Sport customers access to F1 TV Pro at no additional cost. This is the first value added service that we have included in the standard subscription and we believe it will only strengthen our Spark Sport offering for Kiwi sports fans.
Spark Sport offers an extensive range of motorsports in 2021, including FIA Formula One World Championship ™, FIA Formula 2 World Championship ™, FIA Formula 3 World Championship ™, World Rally Championships, MotoGP, Porsche Supercup Series, International GT Open, Euroformula Open , European Le Mans Series, the New Zealand Grand Prix and the Castrol Toyota Racing Series.
The launch of F1 TV Pro in New Zealand also coincides with this weekend’s FORMULA 1 PIRELLI BRITISH GRAND PRIX 2021 and the very first Sprint event – an exciting new test format that will decide starting grid positions for Sunday’s race.
Ian Holmes, Director of Media Rights and Content Creation at Formula 1®, says the arrival of F1® TV Pro in New Zealand means the service is now available in 86 countries, allowing more fans than ever to have full control over what they want. to watch F1®.
“We are extremely happy to bring F1 TV Pro to our fans in New Zealand ahead of this weekend’s British Grand Prix with Spark Sport. The event at Silverstone is still one of the biggest on the calendar, but this year is more action packed than ever. We look forward to the new era of F1 with the unveiling of the 2022 car on Thursday, ahead of an extended race weekend schedule that will see three days of competitive racing starting with qualifying on Friday. Fans will then be able to watch the very first Sprint event on Saturday and then the Grand Prix on Sunday as the title race continues.
“F1 TV Pro allows fans to create their own F1 experience with twenty onboard cameras to choose from and listen to when they want to hear the drivers talk about tactics with their team. We are using new technology that emphasizes performance and quality as it is specially designed to watch fast action, so we are excited to pair it with Spark Sport which is at the forefront of innovation in sports viewing material in New Zealand.
