|Proposed F1 online broadcast|
Formula 1 has confirmed the territories in which its new subscription service will be available this year.
The service was officially announced on Tuesday, and on Wednesday a full list of territories in which F1 TV Pro will be available was released.
The leading territories are the United States, Germany, France and Mexico, with the service unavailable in several other countries – such as the United Kingdom – due to existing broadcast agreements.
Formula 1’s Head of Digital Frank Arthofer confirmed that security will be put in place to prevent cross-territory subscriptions.
"We want to protect our broadcast partners," he said. "It’s very important to us."

Antigua and Barbuda
British Virgin Islands
