      Sky Sports F1 to show first two races of 2017 Formula One World Championship exclusively live

      Sky Sports F1® to show first two races of 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship™ exclusively live

      https://corporate.sky.com/media-cent...clusively-live

      Sky Sports F1® will be the only place to watch every Formula 1® Grand Prix live next season, with ten races exclusively live including the opening two from Australia and China, and two of the final three races.

      And for the first time in UK TV history, viewers in the UK and Ireland with Sky Q can enjoy every Grand Prix in stunning ultra high-definition with picture quality four times that of normal HD TV. Customers with Sky Q can also enjoy split viewing, with different race camera angles and highlights alongside live coverage.

      With reigning champion Nico Rosberg retiring at the end of 2016 and Mercedes yet to announce their second driver, the new season is already proving to be an unpredictable one. Sky Sports’ dedicated F1® channel will have bespoke programming throughout the year, from live coverage of every practice and qualifying session to F1® Report, Ted’s Notebook and Race Control via the red button.

      Sky Sports News HQ and skysports.com will have all the latest news throughout the course of the year as constructors look to close the gap on Mercedes.

      Sky Sports Head of Formula 1® Martin Turner said: “With UHD it’s Formula 1® like you’ve never seen it before. It will be the hardest, fastest, loudest season in years with new rules, new cars, new engines and new, massive tyres. From the opening Grand Prix of the year to the season’s home-stretch, Sky Sports F1® remains the definitive place for fans to see every twist and turn of the season.”

      In addition to watching every session of qualifying, practice and race in the 2017 FIA Formula One World Championship™, viewers can enjoy live coverage of F1® feeder series GP2™ and GP3™.

      Fans with NOW TV can purchase a Sky Sports pass from just £6.99.

      The 2017 Formula 1® season is part of a sensational year of sport on Sky Sports which includes more Premier League games than ever before, the British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand, England cricket, golf’s biggest tournaments, ATP tennis, Super League rugby, NFL and much more.

      Just cannot wait for the new season to start, be great to see it in UHD.
      Pining for Ted and the rest of the Sky F1 team now for many Thursday to Sunday weekends of viewing.
      The race control on Sky Q for all the weekends sessions was just excellent too, a great uplift from the great f1 red button race control. Be great to have a season of that.
      Gp2 and Gp3 will also be shown by Sky as in previous years, the best feeder series out there.

      Hope we get to see some uhd during the f1 testing sessions end of Feb, early march like we did when sky 3d hit our screens.

      Some better calendar planning this year too that we do not have Le Mans clashing with an F1 race this year.

      From my understanding there will be 4K content available, but I'm not sure that it will cover the practise sessions at this time. Obviously we'll know more nearer the time.

      Sadly Sky dropped their 3D channel as too many weren't using it, despite the number of 3D TV sales. I guess it isn't for everyone. Personally I do like 3D but have to admit that I tend to stick with 2D as I'm normally doing other things at the same time.
