BBC viewers to get pit lane stream in HD for British Grand Prix

Viewers watching BBC this weekend will notice that, as part of their Summer Red Button offering that the Formula 1 pit lane stream will be in high definition for the British Grand Prix.

As noted in the BBC live text commentary today: “And don’t forget all the lovely extra camera streams available online during qualifying and the race, including the pit lane feed (also available on the Red Button), driver tracker, on-board, timing screens and alternative commentary.”

The BBC’s post earlier this month noted how the British Grand Prix would be one event via the Red Button available in HD, and now we know what stream that is. The HD pit lane stream will be available to Freeview and YouView customers (channel 303), Sky customers (channel 977), Virgin Media customers via channel 994 and Freesat via channel 980.

  1. Impressive. Unless I’m mistaken, Sky doesn’t have an HD feed for their pitlane stream.

    Is the Red Button HD channel here to stay?

  2. Why is it that what ever team Hamilton races for other teams complain when vettel over took weber nothing was done other teams are envy of Hamilton so leave him alone
