If you’re wondering how you can watch the F1 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix live today in India, we’ve got some bad news for you. Liberty Media Corporation, the official promoters of FIA Formula One World Championship, could not reach an agreement with any TV broadcaster or OTT platform to stream the motorsport in the country. The last Formula 1 season was streamed on Star Sports channel as well as Disney HotStar+ OTT platform.
That said, Formula 1 does offer a solution in the form of F1 TV Pro subscription where one can catch all the live action along with race telemetry, driver cams and much more. To watch all F1 races live, one would need to opt for the premium F1 TV Pro subscription, which currently costs $29.99 for the whole season (about Rs 2,451 in Indian currency) There’s also a monthly plan which will set you back by $3.99.
