MotoGP simply can't carry a pay TV deal. It ain't F1, it doesn't have anywhere near the F1 audience even on free TV.

The other problem is that I believe many Motorsports fans, especially bikers, don't cross over into other Sports. This creates a problem because they won't pay for an entire channel of sports they don't care about just for one they do care about.

Perhaps if BT gave a cast iron guarantee to show all Indycar races Live I might pay for it but otherwise - not a chance in hell especially with the gaps in the MotoGP schedule.

The same uproar when F1 switched to Sky, everybody saying they won't watch, it's a disgrace etc. I don't hear many people saying that now as the coverage is 1st class. Give them a chance, they would have paid a lot of money so they won't mess it up.

Some 'American style' pay per view media junky has worked his way round any and all sporting body that would cut a deal, now both he and DORNA have their greedy eyes set on motogp...
I can only say that I currently wait an hour for Eurosports delayed motogp coverage ( like many thousand of others do as a preference over the BBC's offering )
Who cares which TART wishes to shout about their live broadcast deal, DORNA dare not cut all ties with Eurosport as their fan base IS motogp within Europe !

I just cannot imagine the thinking that in the biggest recession Europe has seen in my lifetime, Dorna decides to transfer its product to a pay per view channel?? Just plain odd, unless of course you happen to be a Dorna accountant, then it makes perfect sense???
P.S is that email address for Dorna correct?
