BBC and British Eurosport react to BT Sport’s MotoGP deal

The BBC and British Eurosport have given their reaction to the confirmation today that BT Sport has successfully bid for the exclusive UK TV rights for MotoGP from 2014 onwards. BT Sport’s new five-year deal was officially announced in London this morning, meaning fans will no longer be able to watch Cal Crutchlow and Valentino Rossi on the BBC and British...

Bye Bye GP

Always said out of BSB,WSBK and GP I could live without GP the easiet as the others provide better racing imo, so until Dorna decide to sell off SBK to BT aswell no chance of me paying more money just to watch the Grand Prix. I dont blame BT as such but well done Dorna, you really are killing the sport.

Dorna Clowns

Great news for BSB, WSBK, IOMTT and NW200 etc..

Fans will come over to these championships in droves now.

We already know how good the racing is compared to MotoGPzzzzzz.

It was only the Spanish Prototype Championship anyway.

Exclusive to BT?

Wonderful for those of us with no broadband availability because of our rural location. BT once again have wasted our money. Utter, utter fekkwits.

WTF 2

MAD MAD MAD but DORNA can kiss my ass I have made my decision and that is it with MOTO GP from now onwards. Not paying and extra £200 a year in subscriptions to watch MOTO GP. I will spend the money on my bike and the Sundays that I am not riding with my dog enjoying walking and photography - these are other pleasures in my life that I can enjoy in the summer months. In fact I am not even going to bother with the rest of the season and as I only purchase MCN for the sport that subscription will be cancelled as well. AND one other thing any subscription I do pay most of it will end up in the hands of Football managers i.e. the premier league rights and what that costs. I recent that. Giving up on MOTO GP seems like a good plan at the moment.

Tv motogp

Ok when Dorna sold the rights to the BBC they said it was the right thing to do, making our sport available to all. What a load of bull they obviously don't give a monkeys hoot about the fantastic loyal UK fan. All about the money again as per usual well I for one won't be paying no more I've just about had enough, Dorna need to get there act together before they send our sport further down the pan. In most other European country's including Spain where I might add has the biggest fan base wait for it YEP THAT'S RIGHT IT'S FREE !! So wake up for gods sake. It's not difficult wake up please!!

Greedy Clowns

BT is run by a load of Greedy Clowns. Nearly every one in this country already gets ripped of  by BT  . I have my broadband connection with sky but have to pay BT £15.00 for line rental and if you live in a rural area its even more. When BT was privatised many years ago we were told that it was being sold to the british people. now its owned by big business who are intent on ripping us of even more. Then you have DORNA who are intent on making a quick buck even if it means the possible demise of MOTOGP. What really worries me is what is going to happen to WSB in a couple of years time with DORNA running it. Every cloud has a siver lining though and BSB will go from strength to strength. The  Guys who run BSB know how to run a series and have done a fantastic job with the rules. Needless to say I wont be watching MOTOGP next season .  I also wander why the BBC didnt bid higher because you think how many £145.00 they get from licence fees. What do they spend all that money on?

BT Vision TV has about 638,000 customers -  BSkyB has more than 10 million.  How many of BT Vision's TV customers will be watching it ?    Why couldn't SKY bid for it ?  They had it originally in the early 90's.  If you want it in HD via SKY it'll cost another £15 per month PPV.       MotoGp is dead in GB - R.I.P.
