F1's free-to-air presence in the U.K. is "set to continue thanks to a multi-year deal" between Channel 4 and Sky.

Sky's exclusive rights deal with F1 for '19 had initially "pushed the sport off Britain's free airwaves," until the broadcaster and Channel 4 struck an agreement that "allowed the latter to show the British GP live as well as highlights from all other races."

The new deal between the two broadcasters follows a similar arrangement to this year, but extends until '24 and includes sharing advertising technology and access to Channel 4 content for Sky customers. F1i.com
