Sky Deutschland has announced that the Spanish Grand Prix will be available to stream for free following the cancellation of the Emilia Romagna GP.
After the planned broadcast of the event in Imola (May 21) was cancelled due to the race's cancellation, the broadcaster has now decided on a new race.
F1 enthusiasts will be able to watch the race at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Sky Sports' official Youtube channel, their website as well as in the Sky Sports App.
Sky's exclusive broadcasting rights for Formula 1 in Germany began in 2021, with the pay-TV broadcaster taking over from RTL, which had sublicensed the rights for four races per season in the previous two years.
However, RTL chose not to renew their contract with Sky due to cost considerations, leaving Sky responsible for finding a solution to ensure that some races are available for free-to-air viewing.
As per Sky's contract, four out of the 23 races must be accessible to the wider public.
However, the deal only applies to customers from Sky Germany and will not be available outside of the country including the UK.
