Liberty struggling to launch ‘F1 TV’

Apr.5 (GMM) Liberty Media is struggling to launch F1’s new live streaming service.

Before Australia, the new F1 owner announced that limited countries would have access to the service — but it was delayed until Bahrain.

And now, it has emerged that ‘F1 TV’ is also not ready for Bahrain, amid rumours beta testing revealed a slew of glitches.

“It will be operational as soon as possible,” a spokesperson told Bild newspaper. “Not in Bahrain.”

The Swiss publication Motorsport Aktuell claims that F1 TV is now on track for China, a week after Bahrain.
