- The end of MotoGP on the telly?
Well that is a shame but it won’t make me get BT TV or any other paid for service over and above the TV licence. On second thoughts I can see the TV licence going in the not too distant future. Hardly watch TV these days but MotoGP and more importantly Moto2 and Moto3 on the red button 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Am I right in thinking that if you’re a serious sports fan, and wanted to watch the Moto GP, Grand Prix and Premiership football, you’ll now need a subscription to Sky Sports, ESPN and BT.
What would that lot com in at?
My Sky package includes all of those as I get Sky Sports and Eurosport.Posted 4 years agob rMember
I originally got Sky in the early 90’s so I could watch World Superbikes, and just accept its a cost to watch ‘my sport’.
But, I reckon I get better value out of my circa £500 paid to Sky (which includes 2 remote devices) than the £150 paid for the BBC – based on channels/programmes watched by family and I.Posted 4 years agobuck53Subscriber
Eurosport well most likely still cover it, just on a delay as at the moment.Eurosport is currently part of news package on Sky, so only costs the pound a month for that package.
I got a massive survey from Sky last year about all the possible options for watching BT Sport, ESPN etc so will doubtless be available on Sky platform in one way or another, only question is at what cost?Posted 4 years agojamieaMember
I’ve watched a little of the Giro coverage on Eurosport and the Sky highlights package via the Cricfree.tv stream and I can’t beleive the amount of bloody adverts! I thought paying £hundreds a year would mean you see hardly any, hey ho- I’ll be even less inclined to pay for satellite or cable tv from now on!

The BBC coverage was pretty bad though.I remember when Eurosport lost their coverage there was a petition that caused Dorna to continue Eurosport to continue coverage with just the Moto gp race delayed.I have been watching bike racing on Eurosport since 1991 and it is still the best.Posted 4 years agoeugeo81Member
I prefer the Eurosport coverage too. I will not miss the commentary from Steve parish and Charlie cox on BBC thats for sure! I bought a years subscription on Motogp.com this year, the commentary from Gavin Emmett and the new multiscreen is pretty good and cheaper than a BT subscription.Posted 4 years agofervouredimageMember
You don’t need TV anymore. I watch all the major sporting events I’m interested in a day or 2 later on YouTube when some kind soul uploads them.
Motogp, F1, Motocross GP, AMA Supercross. Admittedly the motocross and supercross are a bit niche but at least I don’t have to pay for Sky or a TV licence for that matter.Posted 4 years ago
