How to Watch the F1 TV App on LG Smart TV

If you’re looking for entertainment and drama, you can’t really go wrong with choosing any modern streaming service. However, when it comes to specific sports and games, you’ll need to get a bit more granular in your search to find the content you want. This is true in the case of F1 races, where your options are a bit more limited. If you want access to as much content as possible, then F1 TV is the best choice. We’re going to show you the easiest ways to access F1 TV on your LG smart TV in this article.

If you’re still looking for an all-round streaming service, however, check out these options:

How to Watch F1 TV on an LG Smart TV

If you have an Apple TV subscription, you can watch F1 through this. You can also make use of your Fire Stick or Roku TV Stick and download the F1 TV app this way. Alternatively, yet another way is to open a web browser from the home menu on your TV and go to the F1 TV website. Here, you can sign in with your details, and start watching. In any case, you’re going to need an F1 TV subscription.

This currently comes to $10/month or $3/month for F1 TV Pro and F1 TV Access respectively, or $80/$27 per year if you go for an annual subscription (summarized in the table below.) The main difference between these services is that Pro gives you access to uninterrupted live races, with the option to switch your view between the live footage or any of the racing car’s onboard cameras. The Access service is much more affordable but doesn’t grant you onboard camera watching or live races (replays are released up to two days afterward.) However, both services give you access to a selection of archived races.

Can You Stream F1 TV on an LG Smart TV?

If you have an F1 TV subscription, then yes, you can stream on your TV. Unfortunately, however, there isn’t a native F1 TV app on LG TVs, so you’ll have to employ a workaround. Luckily, if you don’t have an Apple TV subscription, or any TV sticks, there is another way. Both iPhones and Android have a native F1 TV app, and this works well when cast to your TV.

There’s no native F1 TV app for LG smart TVs, but you can access F1 TV through a variety of methods.

How to Cast F1 TV to an LG Smart TV

Whether you have an iPhone or an Android phone, you can cast the app to your TV fairly easily. Just check out the steps below.

Step 1: Open F1 TV App

To begin, open the F1 TV app and choose something to watch.

Step 2: Use AirPlay or Smart View

If you have an iPhone, you may need to activate AirPlay on your TV. This is found in the “General” tab in the settings menu. After this, you can tap the AirPlay logo on the app and choose the TV to cast to. For Android, swipe up on your phone to open Quick Panel. Then, choose Smart View, followed by your LG TV. The result of both of these methods is the same — the race will now be showing on the big screen. If you’re a visual learner, take a look at the videos we’ve placed here for instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is F1 TV available on LG smart TVs?

Yes, although there is no native app available currently.

How do I watch F1 TV on an LG smart TV?

You can cast from a mobile device, log into the website, or use your Apple TV subscription, or Fire/Roku TV stick to tune in.

Do I have to pay to watch F1 TV?

Yes, there are two subscription options available: Access and Pro. Access is the cheaper option, but doesn’t give you ad-free watching, live access, or onboard camera-switching as the Pro version does.

How much does F1 TV cost?

The Access package costs $3/month or $27/year, while the Pro version costs $10/month or $80/year.

Is the Pro version worth it?

If watching live races and being able to switch your view is a priority for you, then the Pro version is well worth it. However, if you just want to casually watch races from time to time, including historic races, then the Access version may be suitable enough.
