    Has anybody heard yet who the commentators will be on BT Sport for the MotoGP season this year, I have heard it won't be Toby Moody, but await an announcement with baited breath.

    Finally decided we're not going to go with BT can't stand the thought of getting involved with that shower of shite again and definitely not paying Sky another £12 .
    My son subscribes to moto go site and 3 of us are sharing the cost so we can use the same log in and password and watch it on pc laptop or smart tv wherever we are. Tried it out it works well and is cheaper with 3 of us and bonus no BT.

    i will not be held to ransom by BT, i would not return to their phone company before they got the moto gp coverage and i definately wont return now,
    i think they thought they would get a flood of returning customers who would pay over the odds for their phone line and usage just watch moto gp..:Angry:
    they thought they had it all tied up and saw £ signs in their eyes. so i will have to go cold turkey and miss the races..:Sad:

    TV coverage of MotoGP in the UK
    This is a request to Dorna chief Carmelo Ezpeleta by UK MotoGP fans to either switch the 2014 TV rights back to the BBC or to allow Eurosport to show delayed full coverage. In a recent online poll, 90% of UK MotoGP fans said they thought that the new 2014 BT deal was a terrible idea. The general consensus online is that most fans will not sign up to BT which will cut viewing figures severely. Effectively killing MotoGP in the UK. Give us back our motorcycle grand prix sport on TV.

    Can,t see the word MUPPET or INTERNET any where above?

    I for one have followed motogp for many years ( remember when it was only on Eurosport)
    I will also not be held to ransom by the Bungleing Thieves company

    I wonder how long it will take the advertising companies to start pulling out after they realise thier potential audience has diminished?

    As you may know BT are losing money hand over fist along with thier customers and have thrown a large amount of money at this ( pushing them even deeper into debt) in a last bid to keep the lazy bar£@ds at the top in jobs

    I think it will all end in tears? :thumb:

    I will not be paying either for moto gp this year. I also object the way they lump sports together so if you to watch sport A you have to pay for B and C as well. There must be a way of watching moto gp off of another country satellite just needs somebody to work it out.

    [HI]We have a problem with mainstream UK media ignoring requests to let UK race fans know about this petition.....so please email every website, magazine and paper that you can think of[/HI].

    So perhaps this did not help. ( the bit on the bottom of the petition)

    And as you say nothing can change now as the contracts have been signed

    Also as the BT picture comes down your telephone line, only hope nothing goes wrong with it as BT open reach (who are,so I am told ,unobtainable can take months to repair the line) I wish all BT customers a great moto gp season. :thumb: Atb

    Oh dear, you seem to have some personal issues. Your demeanour is dragging me down I'm afraid.
    I will have to ignore any more of your posts and negativity.

    I have searched high and low for a solution up till now unsuccessfully !!
    Will try the link Larry provided but have spoken to many friends in the know,both in UK and France without a solution.
    I have followed bike racing one way or the other for more than 50 years and think this is the worst decision ever made.Living in France I could get Moto GP on red button and BBC via my "Illegal sky box" only illegal as should not be used outside UK,hah.I subscribe to Eurosport on the iPad so will still get WSB but timings are often hours out.I saw very little Dakar coverage and was never on at the advertised times. I did complain to Eurosport and the reply was live events can often run over schedule.
    I am only typing this because I just don't understand!!Ok I know viewing figures are small compared with footy or cricket BUT it ain't a minority sport is it?
    How many bikers on here alone,very seldom left with NO option but looks like could be this time,dreadful mistake by Dorna.:Angry:
