MotoGP season starts this weekend in Qatar. After F1, Sky has now robbed national broadcasters also of the bikes..!!
At least in Italy, 8 of the 18 races are live on “Cielo” which is on channel 19 of the TivÃ¹Sat package, encrypted but subscription free to TV license holders.
Anyone know if there is FTA coverage of live races on other channels (28Â°,19Â°,13Â°)…??? Thanksssssss22/03/2014 at 1:49 pm #6895
Just partially answered my own question, at least for this weekend. MotoGP is FTA on Sport 1 Germany, 19.2Â°E 12480 V – 27500.22/03/2014 at 2:19 pm #6897

Sorry to all you MotoGP fans in Italy but you can forget decent FTA coverage on “Cielo”…!!! The MotoGP qualifying was a farcical chat between 3 guys in the studio (including Agostini) who said nothing intelligent and showed no more than 5 minutes of live qualifying but much more advertising for SKY coverage. Not really surprising since “Cielo” translates to Sky in English (well, well…!!!).
Of course we should reserve judgement until after the race proper but knowing Murdoch, we ain’t gonna get nothing for free. Like for F1, looks like we will be looking to Germany again for our sport…23/03/2014 at 4:55 pm #6920
Derek….yea a bit off a loss off Live FTA Motorsport….On BBC & Eurosport………But you can’t blame Murdoch & Sky for this one…….Blame BT sport and the Money grabbing Moto GP TV rights holders………you will have to watch Sport 1….by the end of the F1 & Moto GP season…you will be fluent in German 🙂
……..But if its any use or consolation….Highlights on ITV 4.. Monday evening..9 pm..cet…..23/03/2014 at 8:34 pm #6926
Steve, must say I was quite surprised that “Cielo” actualy showed the entire race almost without interruption. The commentary was pathetic but at least I could understand it 🙂 . I do still blame Murdoch, there wouldn’t be prostitutes without punters prepared to pay them….!!!!24/03/2014 at 11:18 am #6944
I don’t usually watch Moto GP much…….but watched the race last night… on sport 1…..what a exciting race !…and I could hear the Engines,,!….
Unlike the pathetic F1 engines this year ……My planned trip to the Austrian F1 GP or any another F1 race in the future….are now cancelled !!…..
I’ll Probably go and watch a DTM Race live instead….Much cheaper…and louder..!28/06/2014 at 10:02 am #9687
