Reduced to watching German tv for MotoGP coverage

For coverage of the MotoGP events I am reduced to the German DSF channel on my Astra satellite (analogue) set up! OK if you understand German, just watch the pictures and learn. I got the gist of most of what was shown. Tried BBC 3, that was pretty awful, will never forgive Eurosport International for dumping MotoGP and the knowledgeable commentators, sadly missed.

BBC MotoGP coverage

I would just like to say that the BBC is a joke - I mean first race of the year, look on BBC1/BBC2, no MotoGP... eventually find it on BBC3... It was given to the BBC to enable more fans to be able to watch, ha! someone was having a laugh. Give it all back to Eurosport and bring back Randy.

MotoGP organisers

Well done organisers of the MotoGP in Losail! Do you have any brains? UK and Europe are only 2 hours away from Losail so why this stupid eco unfriendly floodlight joke! Lunchtime in the UK is fine and the USA have no interest in MotoGP. Even worse BBC showed some old git waddling around the track on a bmw twin, shouting something that could not be heard. I have seen school sports days that...
