It won't be long before we are paying another four or five channels £12 a month for what you used to watch on the full Sky package, the relentless greed of these people is just astounding.

This is very sad news as the coverage from Eurosport is great if you are a true biking fan, plus the combination of knowledge & experience of the commentary team & Spalding's in depth knowledge of the technical side just makes it more interesting, plus you can't help but laugh at some of their banter, so unless the coverage is going to be to the level currently supplied by the Eurosport massive, for all 3 classes, then Moto Gp will loose out big time I hope that they know what they are doing. I am a big fan & have NEVER bothered with the Live Moto GP coverage as the commentators & viewing have had nothing but rubbish reviews whenever I have looked into it, So chin up Eurosport you cover the rest so keep up the excellent work!!

A five year contract to show a minority sport, taking it off free to air where there was real prospect for growth and instead giving the rights to a Broadcaster with almost no viewers!

Dorna - what kind of strategy is that?

Unfortunately this will be a disaster - Dorna may have made a quick buck now, but in five years time the TV rights will be worthless because the audience will have shrunk.

Disgusted at the news been watching for 20 years on Eurosport. BBC coverage especially the commentary was disgraceful. Will not be subscribing to BT and hope Dorna has shot itself in the foot. Sad news for Moto Gp.

Eurosport could / should talk to BT about a private deal that would allow them to show Motogp on a delayed basis as they do now with the MAIN RACE. The deal could mean that ALL three classes would be shown but 1HR later so Moto3 would be 11.00 Moto2 12.20 and Motogp would stay at !4.00. BT could also talk to BBC or ITV about a free to air deal. But i do not think this will happen.
