I'd hate it if the BBC didn't show MGP, I've tried Eurosport and wasn't impressed. But yeah, like the post above, the Beeb don't care about it. They've never made any effort to improve the program.
What's the bet that they'll cut the Laguna pre race build up for a repeat of Dads Army this year.

Since when did the BBC show anything in "pin-sharp" HD?!? Don't make me laugh.

All they have is a load of over-compressed mush that is barely any better than a standard definition broadcast.

Not much of a selling point really. I'd rather it was broadcast on Eurosport HD with some decent commentary.

Given that the BBC seem to have (quite rightly) decided that it isn't the job of a public broadcaster to line the pockets of commercial sports rights holders, why don't they GTFO, drop Moto GP and let us have our much loved Ryder/Moody Live coverage back.

The loss of so much BBC F1 on a sunday is BBC Motogp's gain.
Why cant people who want to watch sub standard satellite drivel just go and watch it and shut up.
It's like they are desperatly trying to convince everyone the contract they signed and the extra money they pay is worth it. rofl

'much loved Ryder/Moody'?? These two really grate on my nerves. They're like a couple of geeks comparing their collection of marbles - Moody's embarrassing self-serving and self-concious anecdotes/opinions always accompnaied with one of those awkward laughs - designed perhaps to hide his self-aggrandisement but in effect highlights it - irritate me no end!

I'll be watching the beeb.

I remember Eurosport was running ads in the middle of the race. I know some of them have been really boring. But what do you do when that happens do you guy switch to BBC briefly and you enjoy also the full experience of the ads in HD?
