Curious to know if anyone can watch the F1 races from earlier in the year?  Can you re-enjoy Australia, Bahrain or Chinese F1 GP's?  

 

I can only see Azerbaijan, Spain and Monaco on the SparkSport F1 page.

Back up for new subs, but you can't log in and watch anything - ChromeDev shows a 401 sending the auth data to istreamplanet.com <sigh>

I've purchased the RWC pass.


I watched the first game of the 87 RWC to test - worked perfectly, and I actually quite enjoyed the game (I ended up watching about 30 minutes after telling myself I was just testing the service).




I bought the RWC package but it doesn’t give me an option to watch old matches. Do you have to have a spark sport sub too? Do you need a spark sport sub to use the pack when the games are actually playing later this year (or just the pack?)

I signed up yesterday to the RWC pack and I was able to watch sections of the '87 game.

I am not a Spark Sport subscriber.

From today, Spark Sport is available as an app on selected Samsung Smart TVs. Customers purchasing a 2019 Samsung TV will have Spark Sport pre-loaded on the TV, while customers with a 2017 or 2018 model will be able to easily download Spark Sport from the Samsung App Store.

 

Jeff Latch, Head of Spark Sport says “The ease of watching Spark Sport on a Smart TV will be attractive for many – at a click of the remote, sports fans will be able to select from the wide range of sport available on Spark Sport. The launch today of the Samsung TV app is just the start of a roll out across a wide range of platforms that will make Spark Sport really accessible for New Zealanders.”

 

Jens Anders, Samsung New Zealand Head of Consumer Electronics says “Kiwis are huge sports fans, so we’re excited to partner with Spark Sport to give our customers the ability to be the first in New Zealand to stream the range of sports that Spark Sport provides directly from their smart TVs. When paired with our signature vivid Samsung QLED, it will offer convenience through an unrivalled and immersive viewing experience from your living room.”

 

Spark Sport apps for Apple TV and Android TV devices are on track to launch shortly in June. After this, the app will roll out progressively on other devices (Sony, LG and Panasonic TVs). These platforms are all planned to be live in advance of Rugby World Cup 2019 and are in addition to the current ability to watch Spark Sport on web, iPad and iPhone, Android devices, AirPlay to Apple TV and via Chromecast to a big screen.

 

Customers with older Samsung TVs will still be able to watch Spark Sport on their TVs, using one of the range of other applications that support watching Spark Sport on a big screen. 

 

Spark Sport is currently retailing Rugby World Cup 2019 Tournament Passes at an early bird price of $79.99 for all 48 matches, live and on demand. The Tournament Pass includes access to selected archive Rugby World Cup matches as soon as a Tournament Pass has been purchased.

 

To watch Spark Sport, customers need a decent broadband connection, a device (such as a 2017 or more recent Samsung TV) and a Spark Sport account.

@ockel I asked SparkSport about this and they told me the races are only available for 60 days afterwards :(

Oh.  I expected Spark to be innovative in its offering but thats hardly better than the regular broadcasters with their traditional 28 day window.  Must be that the value to customers in offering beyond 60 days is less than the cost of having the rights for longer periods of time.  Interesting that the F1 replays are available after 14 days via F1TV (at $4.50/mth) and F2/F3/Supercup after 2 days.  Cant imagine that the rights value beyond 60 days is very expensive though.

Anyone know why Spark is only providing its app for TVs from 2017 onwards? Is it a technical reason or do you think it is a cost issue - the further you go back, the more work is involved? 

 

I have a 2016 smart TV which is hardly out of date and runs YouTube, Dailymotion apps with no problems. It will just be a nuisance to have to connect to the laptop every time I want to watch a game.
