Formula 1, cricket and football are all on sky which a large proportion of the country already have.

BT sport on the other hand, nobody has, as it doesn't even exist yet and who in their right mind will pay £15 a month (£180 a year) to watch a few boring bike races.

every weekend or from Friday free practice I watch and listen to the boys on eurosport with all the knowledge from the paddock and riders for 12 years ..even them old randy mamola days. Then race day have to switch over to BBC to watch the main race just because I need to crack on with my day.. But it sickens me every time I do it. That coxy makes me puke trying to be funny all the time.. I just did.nt and don.t get it

The Rights to BSB are owned by Motorsport Vision not Dorna so should be safe and should stay on Eurosport if they can agree a new deal after 2015 when the current deal runs out. If they do sign another deal for the 2016 season onwoulds i hope they will show superpole. WSB may not be safe. BT may bid for that as well.
You can watch Eurosport online @2.99 p/m. Sky online with SKYGO for F1. BT could put there Sports channels online like Europort do with Europlayer. Some people may want to watch Motgp online but cant because there broadband is not with BT.

Matt Roberts, Azi Farni, Steve Parrish, Charlie Cox
These 4 people brought the show down. Azi as a pit lane reporter, she never has any idea what to ask and Cox and Parrish they miss everything in front of their eyes.
Bring on the BT Sports program but please do it without any of these 4 and and bring in former racers people who know what they are talking about. BBC always have experts to speak for football and Wimbledon but for GP's crap...Bye Bye BBC

Thanks for nothing Dorna. No more of the excellent and informed Julian and Toby - not even a droning Australian.
An extremely p$$$$ off expat with NO access to BT broadband.
