BT Sport team break cover

After months of speculation, BT Sport has finally announced the team that will head their 2014 MotoGP coverage. The team will be led by one of the most famous commentary teams in biking history, with former Eurosport commentator Julian Ryder joined by British Champion Keith Huewen. The team, who led Sky Sports’ coverage of GP and World Superbikes in the...

BT have put together a very strong team, I have no complaints at all. I particularly like that MCN's own Matt Birt will be doing some commentary on Moto2 and 3, a bit of a plum job when you consider how good those championships are.

With regards to getting BT Sport for free, just ditch your broadband supplier for them. You can still keep Sky TV or whatever.

Sorry Guys

no matter how good the coverage, how good the commentary team are (they are the best) and how sexy the anchor person is (and she is I've seen the raunchy photo's) .... it's the principle that niggles me.  

'Stand and Deliver' .... **** Turpin rides again.

Having said all that I Will reluctantyly and resentfully be subscribing because I don't want to miss watching my favourite sport.   What we are doing is feeding the greedy mouth of a corporate giant.

Pah! if only I had the courage of my convictions.

Great Team

Well, except for Melanie Sykes (not bad eye candy tho). I was so against this idea to begin with, signing up to BT Sport etc. I have Sky for TV and Virgin for Phone and Internet. I phoned Virgin ad told them I would be leaving their service and joining BT. Well, they bent over backwards to keep me on their books and I ended up saving £18.00 per month and got a better service and router. So now I will get BT through SKY and still be quids in. I'll sign up with BT via SKY just before the 1st MotoGP races and sign off again in November paying £90.00 to watch it all, can't get much better than that! But like most others here, no interest in football or cricket or any of that, just the bikes. Can't wait for it all to start!

Dead on.

Better than BBC for sure, so well done. I have BT Sport already, and as I've complained about Parrish and Cox for so long, I will have to be happy with anything else.

Not a bad effort.

BT Sport

 I, like almost everyone I know, refuse to have anything to do with BT Sport, or BT generally, for that matter. A thoroughly discredited organiusation who seem intend on controlling UK sport on TV in a desperate bid for customers. I will not be paying a penny to watch MotoGP, and will have to be content with catching up on the events via the web afterwards. All my biking friends are saying the exact same thing. it's not the cost, it's the principle. This whole deal is bad for the sport, bad for customers and will see the viewing figures fall to nothing. A very sad tale indeed.

 That looks like a great line up... I'm looking forward to see what they can produce show wise. the Eurosport show was OK, but nothing special. The BBC tried, but they had a commentator that I just couldn't take to, show I didn't really watch it. 

... Roll on March 18th ("The channel's new MotoGP coverage launches on March 18 with a special preview show, featuring interviews with all the top riders and action from the pre-season tests."... quote taken from another website which had a bit more info than MCN).
