Australia’s premier pay-TV network Foxtel has announced it will launch a dedicated Fox Sports Formula 1 channel as part of its coverage of this year’s Australian Grand Prix.

From March 20, Fox Sports’ Channel 506 will become the home of Formula 1, providing fans with wall-to-wall coverage right through the week until Sunday’s race.

In addition to broadcasting live coverage of every F1 session using SKY F1’s feed, the channel will show one-hour season review packages and replay a selection of classic F1 races.

Fox Sports will remain as the sole television network in Australia to provide live coverage of every Grand Prix over the 2017 season.

Network Ten will provide live race broadcasts over its free-to-air channel for the Australian, Russian, Monaco, Azerbaijan, British, Belgian, Singapore, Malaysian, Mexican and Abu Dhabi Grands Prix. The remaining races on the calendar will be shown with a delayed one-hour highlights package. All telecasts will leverage the Channel 4 broadcast feed and commentary.
