Operated by partner C15 Studio, the new channel will be available in the USA ahead of the Miami Grand Prix, and fans can see it on leading services including Samsung TV Plus, Amazon Freevee, and Pluto TV.

The Formula 1 Channel, a Free Ad-supported Streaming Television (FAST) channel, is the latest addition to F1’s programming portfolio currently available for fans in the US, and supports the core live offerings from ESPN and F1 TV, the sport's own streaming service.

Demand for F1 in the United States is at an all-time high, with a fanbase of over 42m and television audiences at record numbers. Following the recent growth of FAST channels in the country, the launch of the Formula 1 Channel reflects the latest television trends amongst fans there.

"This service caters to the diverse viewing habits of our USA fanbase and serves as a great entry point for new fans into the sport, through strong curated programming which aims to showcase the drama of F1.

"Together with C15 Studio, we hope to develop the Formula 1 Channel into an industry leading product, that serves alongside our existing live broadcast offering with ESPN and F1 TV, to give fans a truly comprehensive F1 experience 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
