    Usually the late match is on NBC.

    That's usually on a Saturday for the game that starts at 12:30. Sunday 11:30 kick offs are normally on NBCSN. As I said they might switch the game to NBC that weekend.

    Taped delay, no qualifying and not even all the races and we're supposed to believe this is better. I'd take bein over this any day. Never had a single issue in the 3 or 4 years everything was on bein. NBC sports doesn't even list it as upcoming in their app or give you an option to subscribe for the season.

    And just like that, even fewer people will watch roadracing on the United States.

    It sucks.

    How bad was the coverage on Bein now, shit nuggets? :D

    "Oh, everything will be great when motorcycle racing gets on one of the majors!" No, no it won't, this shit sucks!

    Never once bitched about BeIn's coverage. 3-4 hours of racing on a Sunday was awesome, and totally reliable.

    Fingers crossed that all the bitching over NBCSN is all for not, but we'll see.

    Sure, but expecting the channel to promote it's lower-tier programming probably isn't a realistic expectation. You'd have more luck with ESPN promoting axe throwing and/or corn hole tournaments.

    Ever notice how much ESPN will promote certain things over others. College basketball, UFC, even the latest heavyweight fight. They have a higher vested financial interest in all of those, more so than say hockey or NASCAR. It's just the reality of things.

    Well I dropped our Dish package down 2 levels yesterday, cut the bill 20 bucks a month. Bought the WSBK subscription this morning.

    I'm going to sell a complete motorcycle to pay for Moto GP and WSBK packages. :)

    Bummer but I wont be buying wsbk. Motogp and MA will have to suffice.

    get a couple buddies, split the subscriptions 3 ways. Have all 3 on demand on any device; cast them to your TV etc. for like $100/yr. Easy peasy.

    I also find this astonishing. I actually ONLY keep up with formula 1 via this YT channel/highlights reel now. The 70lap races are generally a snoozer and I don't ever have 3hrs to sit and watch something so not entertaining.

    Maybe not you but I remember constant bitching that sounded exactly like this - especially it not being in the guide.

    I’d like to watch all the races on my tv. If I bought all subscriptions could this be done on a smart tv? Or would a roku also do this with my current tv?
