From this season and until 2023, Movistar + and DAZN will share the broadcasting rights of Formula 1. In this way, the premier class can be seen on both platforms, although the agreement affects many other sports disciplines.
Movistar + and DAZN, entertainment platform and streaming content transmitter respectively, have reached an agreement that will allow both entities to issue Formula 1 to their subscribers for the next three seasons.
The agreement allows DAZN to have exclusive Formula 1 broadcasting rights through a channel entirely dedicated to the category and that can be seen on both platforms, on Movistar from January 21 and on DAZN from March 1. Therefore, the Movistar + Formula 1 channel will disappear.

In addition to Formula 1 and MotoGP, Other sports channels will also be incorporated into Movistar +, given that this agreement means that Movistar + now has disciplines whose rights are owned by DAZN such as the Basketball EuroLiga, the English Football Premier League, the Italian Football Coppa Italia, the Copa Libertadores football in South America or the King of Spanish soccer, in addition to the WTA and UFC tennis tournaments.
In practice, Movistar + starts broadcasting all DAZN content, with the streaming platform being able to do the same with the Formula 1 World Championship from this year and until season 2023. The details of the agreement are still unknown, as well as the contract terms for clients on both platforms, but the premier class will undoubtedly arouse high interest in fans as a result of the arrival of Carlos Sainz to Ferrari and the return to Formula 1 by Fernando Alonso from the hand of Alpine.
