No free races on German TV in 2023

RTL lost its rights to pay broadcaster Sky two years ago, although the latter agreed a deal to allow RTL to broadcast four live grands prix until last season. “We have decided not to broadcast individual Formula 1 races in 2023,” a spokesperson for RTL told Bild newspaper. “We are concentrating on football and our newly acquired NFL rights on free TV.”. It is the first time since 1991 in which not a single Formula 1 race will be shown on free-to-air television in Germany. However, it is believed Sky is now offering an RTL-like sub-licensing deal to other broadcasters, with ProSiebenSat.1 the apparent front runner.
