Now TV, the Hong Kong pay-TV service has made it official that it will broadcast Formula One in Hong Kong for the remainder of the ongoing season along with the entire 2022 edition.
Now TV initiated airing Formula One in Hong Kong during the Dutch Grand Prix and the pay-TV service will continue to do it for the remainder of the season.
Now TV will broadcast Formula One through Now Sports Plus and will stream via its digital platform. Cantonese and English commentary will be available during the races.
Formula One’s junior series, Formula Three and Formula Two will also be broadcasted by Now TV in this collaboration.
“Following the closure of the Fox Sports channels in the region, we are delighted to be entering a new partnership with Now TV to continue bringing Formula One action to our huge fanbase in Hong Kong,” said Michaella Snoeck, head of media rights at Formula One.
“The conclusion of the 2021 season is set to be a classic as we look forward to the closest championship battle in years, before we enter the hugely anticipated new era of Formula One in 2022 with a brand-new car and new rules and regulations – it’s a very exciting time to be a Formula One fan.”
“Formula One is one of the most-watched sports events in Hong Kong,” said Derek Choi, head of pay-TV at Now TV’s parent company, HKT.
“We are very excited to have reached a broadcast agreement with Formula One, allowing fans to continue to enjoy this world-class racing event for the next two seasons.”
