The F1 Championship continues with the Brazilian Grand Prix starting soon. It’s going to be an exciting race with Max Verstappen sure to want to build on his victory in Mexico last week. If you want to see the F1 Brazilian Grand Prix live stream, there’s a particularly great way to do so and even better — it won’t cost you a cent. Intrigued to know more? Here’s all you need to know about how to watch the thrilling race.

Watch the free Brazilian GP live stream

The Brazilian Grand Prix is being aired for free in Austria and Luxembourg. This is great news for those in the countries, but devastating for residents traveling abroad who want to watch the action unfold live in their local language — especially when it’s free-to-watch at home. It’s only natural that an Austrian currently in the United States would want to watch the race in Austrian and not English, right? This is completely safe and legal to do with a VPN like NordVPN. Just install it, choose to the location you wish to connect to, then fire up broadcast. The free streams are ORF in Austria or RTL Zwee in Luxembourg.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a free Brazilian GP live stream for residents of other countries. Elsewhere, folks will need to tune in through a local broadcast partner. The race is available on ESPN in the United States, and the best way to tune in is through fuboTV, which offers a one-week free trial to new customers In the United Kingdom, it’s available on Sky Sports F1, and over in Canada it’s being broadcast in English through TNS and in French through RDS. There are some other options available as well — below we’ll talk you through the different ways you can tune in locally in the United States in more detail.

Watch the Brazilian Grand Prix on FuboTV

FuboTV is not as much of a household name for Hulu, but might be shaping up to be the best streaming service for sports fans (especially if Fubo’s plan to serve as a sports betting platform pans out) and those who want to watch the Brazilian Grand Prix online — even more so because it offers a one-week free trial to new customers. Its channel lineup is enticing, too: The $65 per month Starter package features more than 115 channels for news, entertainment, and sports, including every Formula 1 live stream airing on ESPN2, its exclusive home in the United States.

As with Hulu, FuboTV offers premium channels as add-ons, such as Showtime, Starz, and Epix. Note, however, that HBO is unavailable on Fubo as of now. This may change in the future as it has with other streaming services. If you can live without HBO, though, and you don’t wish to take advantage of the Hulu bundle with Disney+ and ESPN+ (or you’re willing to pay for those separately), then FuboTV is an excellent streaming package if you want to watch the Brazilian Grand Prix and enjoy a wider TV channel lineup than Hulu + Live TV offers.

Watch the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sling TV

Hulu with Live TV might be the biggest streaming package on our list, but if you don’t want that and are more interested in a more value-conscious streaming package (and one that will let you watch the Brazilian GP live stream online), Sling TV is another top pick. Sling offers two plans: Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels among its 32 TV channels, while Sling Blue includes other sports channels but not ESPN among its 42-channel lineup. Each plan costs $35 per month.

Note that the plans share many channels, so there is some overlap, but only Orange offers ESPN. Those looking to stream F1 races online should go with the Sling Orange plan at the very least, as Blue does not feature any ESPN channels. However, you can combine the two into the Sling Orange & Blue for $50, which is the best value option. This gives you all the channels of both the Orange and Blue channels — 50 channels in total — and is a great option for sports lovers.

The Orange plan’s three ESPN channels let you watch F1 live streams to your heart’s content, while the Blue plan’s sports channels include Fox Sports, NBC, and the NFL Network for more live action. Hungry for even more? You can always sign up for ESPN+ separately ($7 per month or $70 per year) to complete your sports streaming loadout, and you’ll still be paying less than you would for the other streaming packages on our list.

Watch the Brazilian Grand Prix on Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV is our favorite streaming bundle, so it’s worth taking a closer look at. At its core, it’s a cable TV replacement that’s tailor-made for cord-cutters — those who opt to totally replace their cable or satellite television service in favor of online streaming apps. However, Hulu with Live TV now includes the Disney Bundle (formerly, this was an optional premium add-on to the Hulu with Live TV plan), making this perhaps the most comprehensive streaming package out there, as well as the best bang for your buck.

The core Hulu with Live TV plan includes more than 75 television channels (the specific number will vary depending on your local market) including ESPN, so it’s good to go if you want to watch the Brazilian GP today. It’s great for other sports, too, as it also includes channels like NBC, Fox, CBS, and more — NBA, NFL, PGA, NCAA, NHL, it’s all there. And with ESPN+, you can even stream UFC fights and pay-per-views, along with all the other sports content that ESPN+ offers.

As you’d expect from the name, Hulu with Live TV includes ad-supported Hulu, so you can enjoy thousands of shows, movies, and Hulu originals. On top of all that, Disney+ has everything a fan of Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars could want. For $70 per month (or $76 per month if you want to upgrade to ad-free Hulu), Hulu with Live TV puts a mountain of live and on-demand entertainment at your fingertips, and it’s the one of the best way to watch the Brazilian Grand Prix live stream online.

Watch the Brazilian Grand Prix on YouTube TV

Both Hulu with Live TV and Sling TV offer up to three simultaneous streams and 50 hours of cloud DVR recording, but if you want something more well-suited to an environment where a number of people are regularly streaming at once, YouTube TV is one to consider. With more than 85 channels to choose from, YouTube TV offers the largest TV selection of these three streaming packages, including four ESPN channels so you can watch the Brazilian GP live stream and other F1 races live.

Of course, you don’t get Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ with YouTube TV, but you can always sign up for those (or the complete Disney Bundle) separately if you want. The trade-off is that you get a couple of other advantages over Hulu with Live TV. For starters, you can watch it on up to 10 devices at once, which makes it a great choice for households with many frequent streamers. You also get unlimited cloud DVR recording so you can download your favorite content and watch it offline when you want.

YouTube TV costs $65 per month, so it falls in-between Hulu with Live TV and Sling TV on the price spectrum. With so many channels to choose from including pretty much the full array of sports channels, YouTube TV is a great value if you don’t care about the Disney Bundle and want more than what Sling TV gets you. And with four ESPN channels in the mix, it’s a great way to watch the Brazilian GP live stream as the 74th Formula 1 World Championship begins.

Thanks to a multi-billion dollar technology business, Apple is in the rare position of not relying on its streaming service as a primary driver of revenue. That means that Apple puts out fewer shows and movies than its competitors, but also that those shows and movies tend to be of a slightly higher quality. For their latest series, Apple TV+ has announced that they'll be diving into the world of fashion for La Maison. Here's everything we know about the new series and where it's drawing its inspiration from.
La Maison: A feud between two fashion empires
La Maison will be set in a contemporary French atelier and will focus on two feuding families who are akin to the Arnaults and Pinaults. The show was created by showrunners José Caltagirone and Valentine Milville and was based on an original idea from executive producer Alex Berger.

The series, which will be in French, will feature a roster of great talent.
