(cafetheology.org) – Good news for the Formula 1 fans in France: The live broadcasts of the Grands Prix will return at least partly to free-to-air TV from 2018 onwards. Liberty Media has agreed to a corresponding contract with TF1. In France, Formula 1 has only been on pay-TV since 2013, at Canal +. In 2017 Canal + presented the Grand Prix of Monaco for the first time via a free TV channel. Starting in 2018, four races will be available free of charge per season; including the return of Formula 1 to France, as well as the return of Formula 1 to France on 24 June in Le Castellet. All the other races will feature the highlights of the show "Automoto" and "Rendez-vous Sport". In addition, news contributions on TF1 and LCI are planned. Canal + will continue to live the entire Formula 1 season on pay-TV. For Formula 1 boss Chase Carey, it's time to find the right balance between range and dollars Free and Pay TV models says, "It is true that we want to go more towards pay platforms over the years, but we must also ensure the range in this process." One way to reach the Formula 1 range when it increasingly disappears into paid television, is the use of social media. In this respect, Liberty has already introduced more flexibility compared to predecessor Bernie Ecclestone.
