Canadian fans are surely in no shortage of options to follow the 2021 F1 season.

Bell Media announced on March 2, 2020, that it had renewed its broadcast rights until the 2024 season, continuing its long-standing partnership with motorsport’s highest series that dates back to the early 1990s.

TSN and RDS, therefore, will broadcast all Formula 1 races live with English and French commentary, respectively.

Both networks’ programming include all the qualifying and practice sessions, as well as encore presentations.

Through their digital platforms, TSN.ca and RDS.ca, fans can also have access to live feeds like onboard cameras, pit lane channel, driver tracker and timing channel.


The Canadian audience also has the option to subscribe to ‘F1 TV’, the series’ official streaming platform.

For $79.99 per year, one can sign up for the ‘TV Pro’ plan. It includes live streams and replays of every track session for all races, access to all driver onboard cameras and team radios, and live streams of F2, F3 and the Porsche Supercup support event.

The cheaper ‘TV Access’ plan limits the subscriber to watch replays of all those pieces of content on demand. It’s priced at $36.99 annually.

Both plans also offer access to live timing features, F1’s historic race archive, exclusive documentaries and videos.

F1 Pro and F1 Access are also available monthly, for $9,99 and $3,99 respectively.
