Starting from the next season, the most prestigious motorsport series, Formula 1, will transition to Nova Sport screens. The Nova Group announced the acquisition of exclusive broadcasting rights for Slovakia and the Czech Republic on the social network X (formerly Twitter). The company did not specify the duration of the agreement.

Since 2015, AMC Networks International has been broadcasting the fastest motor racing discipline on Sport 1 and Sport 2 channels. In addition to the weekend program featuring qualifications and sprint races, they also provided live coverage of Friday’s training sessions.

In recent years, Formula 1 has seen a surge in popularity, partly thanks to the Netflix series Drive to Survive, which explains the sport to new fans and offers a behind-the-scenes view in a dramatic manner. Commentator Števo Eisele, along with occasional input from racer Josef Král, has gained popularity among fans in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Together, they have also created the ‘EisKing’ project, with Forbes magazine ranking Eisele 19th among the top influencers of 2023 in Slovakia.

Strengthening the content offering, Nova Sport also holds rights to other significant sports broadcasts, including NHL hockey matches, UEFA Champions League, German Bundesliga, Spanish LaLiga, MotoGP, Superbike World Championships, and the American NASCAR series.

For viewers without access to Nova Sport, Formula 1 can be watched through the official F1 TV streaming platform. There are two subscription options available, but live broadcasts are exclusive to the more expensive alternative.
