Almost 200 people responded, thanks to each and every one of you. There are a few headlines in there, but here are the poll results:
– Yes, I do not have access to BT Sport but will continue to follow MotoGP via other means: 30.2% (57 votes)
– No, I won’t be following MotoGP in 2014: 30.2% (57 votes)
– Yes, I will continue to follow MotoGP via BT Sport: 26.5% (50 votes)
– No, I don’t currently follow MotoGP and have no interest in doing so: 8.5% (16 votes)
– Undecided: 2.6% (5 votes)
– Poll does not apply to me: 2.0% (4 votes)
Ignoring the people who don’t currently follow MotoGP, and those that the poll does not apply to brings the amount of respondents down by twenty. Hence, the percentages, and probably more accurate percentages are as follows:
– Yes, I do not have access to BT Sport but will continue to follow MotoGP via other means: 33.7% (57 votes)
– No, I won’t be following MotoGP in 2014: 33.7% (57 votes)
– Yes, I will continue to follow MotoGP via BT Sport: 29.6% (50 votes)
– Undecided: 3.0% (5 votes)
I always post disclaimers whenever doing polls that, because of the nature of this site, polls are clearly not reflecting of the general public. But hey, they are interesting to look at and analyse and also generate some good discussion.
The interesting thing is that a lot of people have decided already whether or not they are going to follow MotoGP in 2014, only three percent is undecided which is very low. If you are not a fan of football, then the question is whether you are willing to add an extra few pounds to your existing package, or whether you can miss MotoGP and get yourself out of the habit.
I do have Sky, but am unwilling to fork out an extra £12 for just MotoGP and a few Premiership games I’m not interested in. If they added NASCAR and Formula E to their coverage I would be interested though! – @deanolatino
30 percent say that they will continue to follow MotoGP on BT Sport. That number probably is not too far off what will really happen, in reality though it would be nearer 20 percent. I hate to think that viewing figures could average under 200,000, but we will only get a real indicator come Qatar.
I moved to BT Broadband from Sky last March after their broadband team proved to be completely inept when it came to customer service – I’m really happy with the TV station so far, so look forward to the MotoGP! – TMLS
There is a fairly even split too between BT Sport and ‘other means’ although ‘other means’ was deliberately such a huge parameter to see how many want to keep in touch with MotoGP, but just don’t want to switch to BT Sport.
