The new channel, TNT Sports, will be the broadcaster for MotoGP.

Eurosport, which broadcasted WSBK and BSB in the UK, is under the Warner Bros umbrella. WorldSBK and BSB will remain on Eurosport.

How much does TNT Sports cost

A subscription costs £29.99, which is the same amount as a BT Sport Monthly Pass was costing, but it now includes Eurosport's offerings too. It also includes access to discovery+, the streaming platform of TNT Sports, where you can access Discovery's entertainment shows.
