MOTOGP Subscriptions

I had one for the past couple years but this year I didn't get one. I want to get one again, I really like the content they offer. Who else has one and thinks they are worth it?

I've got one, worth every penny, if I where you tho, I'd get a couple of the "1 race" ones, then over the break, they'll offer a "half price, half season" package, and you can pic that up. Or you could just skip these next few races, watch 'em on speed or in the other section and be good to go.

HAIL TO THE KING!!

Could be worth it but I prefer to download the races for free

I've got one. Shit, it only costs 36 euros and you get tons of great shit.

I have to stream the races here so I guess that plays a part..


Good shit in my eyes.

i have one (obviously)...

Personally, the site is a pain in the ass.
They have idiots and amateurs coding it, and trying to "hide" things behind flash overlays and this necessitates a lot of extra inout when it could be done a lot easier and better just by knowing what the fuck they are doing.

personally, the price is cheap, the service sucks if you ever need it, the site is something worse than what a junior high school kid could put together, the site works aboout 1/2 the time for archives and searching.


honestly, if all you want are the races, there are easier ways to get them and faster as well, since they typically have some of the crappiest downloading speeds oif any place i have seen.

Downloading the races is not the problem. I see al kinds of video content on there which looks good, But I don't get to see it anymore. When I had my subscription, I remember that I did not watch all of it anyway. But now that I don't have access to it, I want it. You know what I'm saying.

I have the subscription and find it a very welcome addition to what speed carries on their broadcast. If I were in Europe where people get to see the races and qualifying live on tv maybe I wouldn't find their coverage that attractive but in the US this is the only chance we have to watch practice and qualifying live. That alone to me is worth the 40-50 euros.

I have the subscription as well. Its not too bad in my opinion. The download speed kinda sucks at times but at least I get to see the whole race unlike on Speed. Its also cool to watch the free practices and qualifying. So overall its cool...

Eurosport rocks...... so I'm not in desperate need of a subscription, but it's totally cool that they offer it. But like Budha said their site (layout and overuse of flash, violent abuse of their user's CPU and god knows what else)sucks.
