With access to all sessions from races going back years.

I know people that spend 5 or 10 dollars a DAY on Starbucks or Big Gulps five or six days a week and don't give it a second thought.

Try to see the forest through the trees.

All that being said, I do agree with the gripes about auto-renewal. It is not unique to Moto GP Video Pass but is definitely B.S.
No torch here, you are absolutely right. People daily piss away money on meaningless shit because it gives them pleasure but want to bitch about something that costs less than 50 fucking cents a day, one half of a damn coke for a pleasure you can use literally 24/7 if you want. I call bull shit all the time when a customer tells me “ oh, I can’t afford that extra 15-20 bucks a month”. Yet they drop 10 bucks a day on lunch, 4-5 bucks a day on coffee, smokes, energy drinks etc etc. I will simply ask the guy if that new bike he desires is worth giving up one little vice a day and they almost always will come to the conclusion they can. Some people just like to bitch.

Absolutely agree. It remains one of the world’s greatest entertainment bargains for a price you could easily spend on a single restaurant dinner for 2.

In real terms yes it is value for money, but who wants to hear it in silence because of the annoying commentators who aren't worth anything. Plus of course lining the Spanish Mafia's pockets.

I get the races on cable TV anyway but like the live timing and coverage of practice, and occasionally watch old races, but agree the commentary has been close to unendurable in recent years.

Over here its BT sports or nothing and they are just as annoying as motogp as well, plus of course at £25 a month are a total rip off if you only watch motogp.

Agreed. I love the video pass. I have it for both GP and SBK. I think it's a great value. I can watch the races no matter where I am live without regard for local coverage. I also find the interviews to be valuable.

While I wouldn't offer, I'd be willing to pay more if needed.

Agree 100%.

In the UK alone, you have to pay over $200 a year for a "TV Licence" just to be able to watch TV. That's on top of the god knows how much a month you have to pay to get BT Sport.

Don't take it personal bro. I've stopped responding to Synnthia who seems to be permanently on the rag. She can't help lashing out at random. Maybe after her womb is removed, she'll calm down.

Yes, but you get to watch all those Benny Hill re-runs on the Beeb commercial free.
