This weekend, MotoGP’s coverage winds down on both the BBC and Eurosport, with BT Sport covering the series from 2014.
The F1 Broadcasting Blog today poses a simple question: do you plan on following MotoGP in 2014? The options are as follows:
Option A – Yes, I will continue to follow MotoGP via BT Sport – self explanatory. You have access to BT Sport currently and therefore will be following MotoGP in 2014.
Option B – Yes, I do not have access to BT Sport but will continue to follow MotoGP via other means – this does not necessarily mean ‘illegal streaming’ before anyone mentions that! It could be via the MotoGP website, AUTOSPORT or other outlets. After all, MotoGP’s YouTube channel is not too shabby…
Option C – No, I won’t be following MotoGP in 2014 – for those that have watched MotoGP in 2013 and before, but won’t be from 2014.
Option D – No, I don’t currently follow MotoGP and have no interest in doing so – you’ve never been a fan, and never will be, basically!
Option E – Undecided – self explanatory and could easily be, for example, a choice of the above three options come next April.
Option F – Poll does not apply to me – just so you don’t feel left out, foreign readers outside of the UK, click this option.
At the moment, I am somewhere between Option’s B and C in all honesty. I definitely will not have access to BT Sport before April, so it will be a case of either not following it at all, or ‘part time’, so to say. At this stage I would put myself (as I have done!) as an Option B. I have watched and followed MotoGP for the best part of a decade, and I don’t particularly want to give up easily! At the same time, I cannot justify getting BT Sport for the IndyCar Series, MotoGP and some Premier League games. The cost is too much for me, as it currently stands on top of the existing package I have.
How many people fall into the same boat as me? The poll is above, but more so use this as discussion rather than just the poll. If there are a few good opinions in the comments then I will publish a follow up blog in a few weeks time.
