MotoGP will be broadcast on BEIN Sports in the US

The final connection to Speedvision/Fox has been cut.

I wonder how many will follow MotoGP now?

Very large in the EU mostly Spanish(owned).

BIEN covers all kinds of sports like foot ball (soccer).  Dish carries it and their broadcasts are very well produced and usually a couple of hours in length (or more). Much better than the FOX coverage IMO.

I think my cable company carries it but it's not part of my package.

I have UVerse and BeIN is not free at the U200 level. Fox Sports was. I am currently researching the costs/options.

I know you all think I am a mild mannered type but this burned my butt.

So I called my cable company and they told me it was another $10.  And I said crap no.  Then they sent me to a manager and she could do it for an extra $1.99.  And I said I was paying enough and I wasn't even getting Showtime.  So said she'd check for specials. 

So now I get Showtime, BEIN + the accompanying sports package and my bill goes down $11. 

And she turned it on when I was watching.  And oh joy, I am getting fishing shows and crappy college  sports (not OU). 

OK.  WTF was that?

UGH! This is terrible news. I too have AT&T Uverse and believe BeIn is only offered at the U400 level, very expensive and out of my budget.

I think Bein sports was carrying World Superbike, no? When I had Direct TV it was on their highest tier. Since I cut the cord I have a Roku and Sling. For an extra 5 bucks over the 20 buck basic channels I can get Bein. Trouble is Motorcycle racing is the only thing they show I am interested in. They do a lot of European Soccer. Not much into that.

Who is your cable company? I'm going to give them a call

what ever happened to wrapping tin foil around your TV's rabbit ears then tilting them just right  and being satisfied with the POS image?

The first race is this weekend but I have not been able to find the time frame, it was listed on TV Racer with a TBA annotation but today when I looked was not listed, same with Moto GP.

I've had beIN for a couple years now to get WSBK for $10 extra on Dish.  $10/mo. isn't going to put me in the poor house. If you're a real road race fan you'll pay the piper or whine.  :tongue:

You can get it by adding the sports package.  I have it with U200.

BeIn has a WSK season preview listed for today at 5:00 PM CDT and again Friday morning at 0900 CDT. I noticed Nicky Hayden will be riding a Honda in the series.

It seems to me the series has not been the same since Max Biaggia retired and I hope Hayden can add some spice to the series.

I switched from DirecTV to Dish years ago and have no regrets and get beIN.   It's cheaper in the long run, so why don't you switch?

With Frontier Communications I get-

Single residence phone service-$9.40

high speed internet+-$44.99

Dish network- $80.51

Taxes + other charges- $13.95 for a total of $154.70/mo.  that's $5.15 a day.

MotoGP 2015 season was success both on track and off it with motoGP penning lucrative tv rights deal across the world. 2016 season will have most extensive tv coverage around the world with around 87 networks broadcasting live action in 207 territories, for the very first time in MotoGP history. We take a look at which channel will have live coverage in your part of the world.

In United States Fox Sports has the rights and they will be covering every grand prix live plus Moto2 and Moto3 coverage on delayed basis. While the Qualifying and Practice rounds will be available live through their website and mobile apps.

so that means FS1 will carry the races just like last year?  and on Bein TV?
