    I don't think I had any problems last year at all. In 2015, I occasionally had a froze feed that would be remedied by hitting refresh on my browser. Overall it's worth it, even though I only watch 10-20% of the material provided.

    Hmm. I think I'm gonna get it. Sucked not seeing the races last year.

    MotoGP feed is totally worth it. Upside: would watch Sunday morning in the trailer, via a laptop and mobile hot spot.

    Downside: Crew couldn't stop watching. :D

    Well worth it. Qualifying, morning warm up, and race for all classes and you don't have to wake up super early to watch live if you don't want to.

    Easily worth it. Looks like they finally added 1080p support too.

    IDK I can already watch races and qualifing on demand from any computer or phone with my slingtv app via bein sports. I was hoping they showed a lot more coverage that would make the video pass worth it. I'm just itching to see some racing we'll see after a few race weekends.

    If you have bein I wouldn't bother. It's a great service, but not if you are already paying for a cable subscription that includes coverage.

    Steeltoe What's my move?

    When did Karel get fast?

    Wow lots of interesting things.

    Abraham faster than lorenzo on a much older Ducati was most surprising to me.
    Awesome to see Folger up there on Tech 3 even ahead of the Goat.
    Critchlow ahead of Marquez and Pedrosa?
    KTM at the back...not too surprising.

    I'm betting Karel is a little freaked out to be going that quick.

    Abraham will only gain a half second for the rest of the test. The rest will gain a second and a half. He will end up 15th

    True. A super nice guy. He just (IMO) doesn't have that edge. That's my fan standpoint. My journo standpoint is more optimistic.

    tick, tick, tick. The Qatar test is like no other. Here is where you fish or cut bait. We'll see who smells funny at the end.
