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

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...

So if I offered you something for FREE, why would you insist on paying £3.65 for it? Are you simple or something?

Haha, so you are the one that thinks something that you pay money for is free and I'm the simple one? It's obviously a concept that you cannot get your head around chap, not to worry, I'm sure there are plenty of remedial maths classes available on the social. Who knows, you may even end up being able to operate a till at McDonalds soon if you really work at it.

Dorna says Fuck UK

After all the years Eurosport has been showing MotoGP throgh thick n thin, now it seems there is a big audience for it, what does Dorna do, sell it to a pay per view that no one gets.

In Spain its aired on free TV, so why should we pay. What next onlt BT subscribers allowed at Silverstone.

If they want good viweing figures, give it back to the BBC,

I stopped using BT years ago, as they are a rip off, so no MotoGP for me

I've just recently

signed up to my service providers phone, broadband and TV service..with a 'YouView' box and the service is very reasonable at £25 a month (no additional call costs).

I suppose I will probably be able to get MotoGP on demand but how much will that cost? I'm not going to chuck out my new providers service and go to BT either as that will cost and I never did like BT anyway, which was why I left them some years ago. I think it's extremely short sighted of big business to completely disrespect all us loyal fans by such a move.

On the other hand, I have been thinking realistically about this and...actually...I think I can live without MotoGP and have decided I may just attend a few more rounds of BSB instead. Let's face it...the racing is much better anyway and I travel to watch it on my bike...Win Win.

Bye bye MotoGP....you lose.

Owain Glyndwr - the  last native Welshman to hold the title of 'Prince of Wales' - the thing is if you don't have a BT line or broadband it's not  free.

It's not ideal

But what can you do. If F1, football, cricket, tennis, boxing, etc can all go to multiple satellite channels, what makes you all think you're special and can have motogp on the Beeb for all time?

Grow up!

Every one moans about this but look at the ammo you give BT, over 80 comments on this yet 3 about yesterdays 2nd race in wsbk, which was more exciting than the last Moto gp round. Go figure?
