UK MotoGP TV rights: To BT, or not to BT?

All part of their plan

Take the big BT bucks, bin the beeb and Eurosport, then the non BT viewers will have to sign up to motogp.

 Fine if you have broadband speeds that are up to it, but many people live out of town and have to put up with poor broadband speeds.

So

1.  Move to a city  - cost £1000 upwards

2. Pay out £7.50 per race

for what we are getting for free now.

 

This just stinks, while Dorna line their pockets, and MotoGP dies out.

I'll save my money and attend more BSB events live thanks.

Sod Em

I already pay for the privilege to watch WSBK and BSB so that's what I will stick with, unless I move to Spain, where lets face it the next 4-5 world champions are coming from. It s a sham of a mockery and a mockery of a sham from those lollygaggers at Dorna. BAHHH!

Fucking Threaders!!

BBC and Eurosport losing the rights to show the races? Lazy, tight fisted BASTARDS! Not a happy lad! I guess I'll be watching it over the Internet, getting fucked off with bandwidth and speeds....... WSB, BSB and more trackdays for me in 2014.....

Could be a great thing!

If moto gp gets any more boring, where only one Yamaha team or one Honda team can win, let alone take all the podium places, then Dorna are doing a great thing by making people turn off due to the quality of racing, and how the public now cannot watch it. If motogp carries on this route, then no one will be watching whatsoever. Thankfully there's still superbike racing!

No thanks.

I too will not pay. I`ve never had Sky or anything like that in my life, except last year I paid Eurosport £4-99 P/M to watch the Supers which was ok I suppose..

Clare Balding though!!!!????  Is that supposed to tempt us into paying up? Ha!  Saw her on an awards show. Does anyone else think she looks ridiculous when she`s dressed up as a woman? !!
No, I hope there`s a mass boycott of this daft idea.

moto gp on pay per view !

well if i gotta pay even more for tv than i do now then i will quite easily miss out . dorna say they appreciate the fan base over here well i think that will very much dwindle . face the facts , its usually a 3 horse race unless someone falls off then its a 2 horse race . maybe cal will get in there at some point but me i'd rather watch a wsb , bsb , supersport or motostar race . least you get your money's worth !
