Formula 1 (F1) - Free Satellite TV Channels

F1 2019 is just around the corner, but what can we expect from the new season as Lewis Hamilton searches for his sixth world title? Formula One (F1) is the highest class of single-seat auto racing that is sanctioned by (FIA). The FIA Formula One World Championship has been the premier form of racing since the inaugural season in 1950.

Formula 1 had a total global television audience of 490 million people during the course of the 2018 season, what is a global growth of 39% compared to 2017.

Despite a huge move of Formula TV rights on pay-TV, there are a lot of FTA (free-to-air) satellite broadcasters having Formula 1 live TV rights or even highlights.

 

Vettel vs Hamilton or Verstappen vs Leclerc

Lewis Hamilton will be favourite for the Formula One world title again this season. Despite Ferrari producing much more competitive F1 cars in the past two years, Sebastian Vettel suffered two heavy defeats against Lewis Hamilton in the drivers' championship, while the Scuderia has not succeeded in ending Mercedes' streak of constructors' titles.

Yet Vettel's Ferrari team have emerged from Formula One's winter hibernation boasting the fastest car. Charles Leclerc will partner Vettel at Ferrari this year and is fancied to put the heat on his teammate. Leclerc says he has not set any “particular target” for his race debut with the team at the Australian Grand Prix. The 21-year-old Monegasque has moved to partner Sebastian Vettel in Ferrari’s revised driver line-up for the upcoming campaign after his impressive rookie season with Sauber in 2018. Vettel should be kept on his toes by Leclerc but is expected to restore his reputation while Max Verstappen will have his hands full with Pierre Gasly at Red Bull.

 

Formula One UK TV rights

Sky Sports F1 have the lion’s share of live coverage in the Formula 1 2019 season after the broadcaster signed an exclusive deal to F1’s live TV rights in the UK. Channel 4 (DVB-T Free in UK, DVB-S FTA on Astra 28.2°E) will showing highlights of all the Qualifying and Formula 1 races this year, along with the British GP at Silverstone in full. NOW TV has just released a special F1 Season Ticket that gives you access to all nine months of the F1 season for a reduced overall price. The F1 Season Ticket for NOW TV will cost you a single £195 payment for the entire season.

 

F1 remains on free-to-air TV in Germany

German broadcaster RTL will have the exclusive free-to-air rights to cover Formula 1 Grands Prix from 2018 to 2020. The agreement includes the coverage of the three free practice sessions on Fridays and Saturdays, qualifying sessions on Saturday afternoons and races on Sundays.

RTL has covered Formula 1 live in Germany since the middle of the 1991 season. RTL Germany is available via different satellites, but it is only free-to-air via Astra 19.2° satellite position.

After a one-year break, pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland will show the Formula 1 again in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The new agreement covers the 2019 and 2020 seasons across all race weekends. Customers with the Sky Q box can watch all races live in Ultra HD on Sky Sport UHD.

Liverpool - Bayern live on TV

Bayern – Liverpool live on TV

  • The Bavarians host Liverpool in the second leg of the Champions League round of last 16
  • Kick-off is on Wednesday 13th March at 8pm (GMT) / 9pm (CET)
  • Robben could be healthy in time - Liverpool are planning with Lovren and van Dijk
  • Broadcasters: BT Sport 2 (UK), Sky (Germany), RMC Sport 2 (France)

After a 0:0 draw in the first leg the Reds will travel to Munich’s Allianz Arena on Wednesday for another titanic battle between two of Europe’s best sides for a place in the quarter-finals. Liverpool are back on top of the Premier League, a point ahead of Manchester City, while Bayern are now just three points off title rivals Borussia Dortmund. So let us give you the most important news straight away, including injury updates and TV and live stream info.

 

Bayern Munich battle for draw in Liverpool

Niko Kovac said before the game that the first leg wouldn't end goalless, but that's exactly what happened at a wet Anfield three weeks ago. Liverpool, with Virgil Van Dijk suspended and Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez both injured, began to dominate midfield possession, led once again by the excellent Henderson, without carving out a real chance against a well-organized Bayern defence.

Jürgen Klopp may not have looked happy after the game, but the coach insists he is "absolutely OK" with Tuesday's goalless draw, even if he has come to expect better from his team. Klopp was visibly angered when he spoke to Kovac after the final whistle. The Liverpool boss gestured after shaking hands with Kovac, who pulled the German's arm to remonstrate with him on the touchline before the Liverpool coach went on the field to speak to his players. Klopp: "That was funny. We were on English soil. In Germany it is normal when games end, you shake hands with your players. In England, first the coaches shake hands so I did what I did in Germany, said sorry and made up for it and, in Germany, we will do it as we do it in Germany."

 

Robben returns to Bayern first team training

Arjen Robben has lately been struggling with a recurring thigh injury that has kept him out since November. There was even a genuine concern that he might not play for Bayern again this season. Robben’s availability for Bayern could give Kovac some interesting options for the clash with Liverpool.

Virgil van Dijk was suspended for the first leg match having been booked in Liverpool’s final group stage match. The Dutchman, who became the world’s most expensive defender when moving to Anfield in 2018, is ‘the best centre-back in the world’, according to Liverpool team-mate Andy Robertson. Van Dijk is set to retain his place at the heart of Liverpool’s defence.

Where to watch Manchester United - Liverpool live?

  • Manchester United vs Liverpool takes place on February 24, 2019 at 2:05pm (UTC) / 3:05pm (CET)
  • It will be the 202nd North West Derby
  • It’s the clash of the team of the hour (ManUnited) and the hottest title contender (Liverpool)
  • Broadcasters: Sky Sports (UK), DAZN (Germany)

Once again it’s time for most famous fixture in English football: the North West Derby between Manchester United and Liverpool FC. Much has changed since the last match between the two football giants on December 16, especially for the Red Devils. The 1-3 defeat against Liverpool was the beginning of the end of the Mourinho era at Old Trafford. Only two days later „the Special One“ was sacked and replaced by ManUnited icon Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Since then the Red Devils have been in great form and even beat both Arsenal and Tottenham. The basis of this success are the improved performances of United’s top players, who seemed constrained under Mourinho and got reinvigorated by Solskjaer. With the likes of Paul Pogba (8 goals/5 assists in the Premier League under Solskjaer) and Marcus Rashford (6/2), they are on their way to better days.

And Liverpool? The Reds continued their run in the league, but they lost their vital match against title contender Manchester City and recently struggled against Leicester and West Ham (both 1-1). Yet Liverpool still leads the table (together with Manchester City) and is one of the two hottest contender for this years Premier League title. So it promises to be one of the most exciting matches between Manchester United and Liverpool in recent years. The clash will take place on February 24 at 2:05pm (UTC) / 3:05pm (CET).

Napoli vs Juventus live stream: Where to watch Napoli vs Juventus

  • Napoli vs Juventus takes place on March 3rd, 2019 at 7:30pm (UTC) / 8:30pm (CET)
  • The match could be indicatory for the Serie A title race as Juventus heads the table with a wide margin
  • The record of the two teams’ last 5 games is balanced (2-1-2)
  • Broadcasters: Eleven Sports (UK), DAZN (Germany), Sky Sport Uno (Italy)

When Serie A powerhouses Napoli and Juventus meet, there is always a lot of tension in the air. The rivalry of the two clubs stems from the historical conflict between the rich north of the country (represented by Juventus) and the poor south of Italy (represented by Napoli). As the only Italian champion ever from the south, Napoli always tries to put a spoke in the wheels of its dominant northern rivals. Whether Napoli succeed with this plan or Juventus continues its dominance can be seen on March 3rd at 7:30pm (UTC) / 8:30pm (CET).

Napoli vs Juve in recent years

On March 25th, 2007 Napoli and Juventus clashed – in the Italian second division Serie B. Roughly twelve years later Napoli left its bankruptcy (which led to an enforced relegation to the fourth division) behind while Juve dominates the Serie A without rigging games (which caused their enforced relegation to the Serie B). 

Nowadays the two clubs are the flagships of Italian football. Juventus developed into the omnipotent dominator of the Serie A by winning every league title in the last seven years. Napoli on the other hand needed a bit more time and acclimation but managed to become the first rival of Juve and even came close to burst the supremacy last season. 

In a memorable match on matchday 34 of last season Napoli beat the record champion 1-0 through a late header shot by Kalidou Koulibaly. This victory brought the thrill back to the title race, even though Napoli missed the chance of overtaking Juventus by the end of the season. Just like last season this years duel between the two teams could be a preliminary decision of the title race. Juve is still unbeaten in the league and is heading for the eigth consecutive Scudetto while Napoli tries to keep on Juventus’ tail.

It promises to be yet another exciting clash of the two clubs. Not only because the record of the last five matches between Napoli and Juve is balanced (2-1-2), but also because of the presence of two of the most lethal attacking lines in Europe. When Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala, Douglas Costa and Mario Mandzukic meet Dries Mertens, Arkadiusz Milik, Lorenzo Insigne and José Callejon a lot of spectacle can be expected.

Where to find your Napoli vs Juventus live stream or TV broadcast

Fans of Italian football in Germany can watch Napoli vs Juventus live on DAZN. The live stream provider broadcasts every Serie A match of the season and offers a free trial month.

In Italy, the match can be seen on Sky Sport Uno (13.0°E) just like every Sunday evening match of the Serie A.

In the UK, Eleven Sports offers a Napoli vs Juventus live stream. A monthly pass costs around six pounds.
