F1 TV, the streaming platform of the prestigious Formula 1 motor racing series, has launched on a number of major over-the-top devices, including Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Google TV.

The move allows many more users to watch the service on larger TV screens rather than those of just smartphones and tablets.

F1 TV makes it possible for users to personalise their viewing experience with access to a variety of features including onboard camera views, live team radios, a pit lane channel and live timing.

It also offers exclusive pre-race shows, an archive of all F1 Grands Prix since 1970 and a collection of exclusive documentaries.

The service is available in 118 territories, while its premium F1 TV Pro offering is available in six languages across 85 territories.

F1 TV was already available on Roku devices in certain territories, but the number of OTT devices on which it is now available will have increased dramatically given the brands involved.

The launches came ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday, which saw Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton run out winner ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen as the two contest the closest drivers’ championship for a number of years.
