Formula One delays start of TV streaming service

The product was announced during testing in Barcelona last month with Formula One saying fans would be able to watch races in a different way, including from their favorite driver’s perspective. F1 TV will give access to cameras mounted on the cars of the 20 drivers as well as the traditional broadcast feed, with viewers able to split the screens of their mobile device or smart TV. – Alan Baldwin, Reuters https://reut.rs/2pyfKNB
