Anyone know what other options will be available?
Cannot stand Rupert Murdoch and steadfastly refuse to pay for a product he is involved with

Sign up with motogp.com and watch it on your computer or phone. You can connect the computer to your TV screen if you like.

I don't know what the subscription fee is now, I still pay 110 euros odd which is what it was when I signed up a decade or more ago.

I am not keen on Dorna either, but they are TB to Rupert's cancer to paraphrase Alan Jones (the racing driver, not the other/formerly Rupert affiliated one).

I subscribe to motogp.com. There’s a MotoGP.com app for android and appleTV. I use it to stream on my TV. The good thing with the subscription is that you have access to all the current and previous motogp, moto2 and moto3 races. I think it a reasonable charge for what you get.

WTF !!!!!!
I'm gutted, but not surprised.
How do they expect to attract new young fans in the future?
Is it free to air in Spain and Italy?
I wonder if it's free to air in India and Brazil?

Certainly isnít fta in the Uk, not for decades. We do get BSB, a one hour highlights slot on quest, a little known freeview channel.

Despite some antipathy on my part towards Dorna I have always regarded the motogp.com subscription as excellent value for my entertainment dollar. It is not hard to spend the same money on a single sporting event or single dinner at an upmarket restaurant.

To watch all F1 races live in the UK, I need a SkySports subscription which is more than the motogp.com subscription. I am not able to view F1 races on demand, so I have to watch it live or watch a replay when broadcasted. Itís not on-demand as with MotoGP.com.

For sure in India. Few Indians will spend $ to watch TV. They have tons of free content from any basic cable set-up and there’s no big corporation to prevent folks from stealing a connection. Still pretty much the Wild West there - in that regard. Watched MotoGp from TV in hotel rooms that were as cheap as $8.00 a day. Still can’t watch a movie there where two people kiss on the lips: a bridge too far.

We had Wild West in Connecticut. Some new neighbor dude hooked up his pirate cable and our picture was gone. Called the cable guy, he came and said: don't bother reporting it, nobody is interested. Then the same dude took the license plate from my spare car I kept in backyard and put it on his car, it had a valid registration tag. A few weeks later I noticed and called cops. Some tiny "policeperson" came in patrol car, took screwdriver and returned me the plate. When I asked what will happen to the thief she said: must be careful, we don't know what kind of person he is ... sat into her patrol car and away she went.
If this isn't Wild West ... what is? Or you may call it degeneration of once a great nation ...
