Is MotoGP's move to BT a good idea?

BT Sport’s successful bid for the live MotoGP TV rights in the UK in 2014 will be confirmed this week, with MCN learning the multi-million pound deal will be formally announced in London tomorrow (Thursday). But with a lot of people not subscribed to BT's tv channels at the minute, there's a lot of apprehension. So we want to know how...

If you have lived in the UK and have dealt only once with BT , you know what a mess they are in . Have to say goodbye to Motogp next year .

Can't get BT Vision here and can't afford to switch to Sky to pick it up. Don't know what I'm going to do about next year but I might have to switch my focus to World Superbikes.

I'd rather stick pins in my eyes than subscribe to BT's TV channels.. guess me and my friend 'the Internet' will be watching it elsewhere.

Well i too will NOT be paying for BT. I will do what i do for all sporting events on pay per view channels, watching via the Internet. Live streaming is the way i watch sporting events from all over the world. Shame the BBC is losing out as i enjoy Cal taking the Mickey out of Matt Roberts each weekend!! Though i won't miss Cox and Parrish's inane, inaccurate ramblings on all subjects except from what's happening on the track. Though i prefer them to Ryder and Moody.....

Hypocrites

I thought the point of shifting from Eurosport to BBC was to try make sure coverage was 'free to air' by default? Now this? I would like to know what this means for Eurosports coverage, especially since we do not have BT here in Ireland and BBC/Eurosport is what we rely on. Personally I don't bother with the BBC coverage, but at least there was a degree of choice. I guess that means paying for MotoGP coverage via MotoGP.com...better find me somewhere with decent broadband to watch on race days though.

Insane

I left BT a couple of years ago for good reason. I'll not be going back. I'll just have to watch it 'after the event' on Eurosport. BT can suck one.

Is Eurosport losing it too?

I don't like BT or any of their services (having had bad experiences with them countless times)and moved phone and internet away from them, as their customer service stinks. From a personal perspective I hope Eurosport keep some coverage rights as they have decent journalists, who know the sport, but I think Dorna have s**t on the British public by taking the free to view option out of the equation. I hope the BT coverage turns around and bites Dorna on the arse, if the quality of their other services are anything to go by it will.

BAD MOVE

Dorna

really screwed up here. Did they not think it improtant to get any idea of subscription rates before offering exculsivity to one channel? Quick way to kill the brand guys. Or do they jsut want everyone to have to buy a motogp.com season pass to watch online?

BT Sport will be available on Sky

Looks like BT sport will be available on Sky, you will need to call BT to subscribe as it will not be available as part of any Sky package and BT have not said how much it will cost yet. Just for comparison when they do come up with prices, you can get a full season Video pass on MotoGP.com for £85 (or the multi screen for about £135)for the year that's about a £5 (or £7.50) a race meeting. I hope Eurosport will be able to continue with there coverage (All practice, Qualifying and races Live with MotoGP delayed) much better than BBC with all on the Red button except the MotoGP race and then everything gets bumped if there's a game of snooker or a tennis match somewhere. (and you can't record the red button if your out on your bike).

dont buy it.

there are many sites where you can watch all the bike racing streamed online so why pay for it.

ok its not 100% at times but its better than forking out stupid amounts of money each month.i ditched sky over a year ago and saved over £60 a month since. do the same no need to pay for it anymore.
