BeIn Sport (an Al Jazerra owned channel, hidden in the upper tiers of DirecTv & Dish) has picked up at least the 1st round @ Phillip Island.
The worst part of this whole WSBK/SPEED coverage discussion: SPEED(Australia) is hosting 7.5 hours of LIVE coverage; that's supersport & both superbike. Not even a delay until Tuesday AM.
Heaven forbid they preempt infomercials, repeats and people pulling down the IQ of our society acting like stereotypical rednecks on television to actually provide real, world-class racing.
Do we at least get it on Speed 2?
I seriously can't believe it. I'm not saying I am surprised, but I just can't believe that a network "devoted to racing" would pull a legitimate racing series.
Too bad they don't dump MotoGP, too - then I would never have a reason to watch this lame-ass network again, save for 24 hours to watch Lemans...which they only ever broadcast about 16 hours of, at best.
Thanks myxl - I just checked it out - and BeIn is indeed carrying the race. On DirecTV, it is channel 620 - BeInHD
Phillip Island is playing Saturday, from 4:30-9:45PM PST (so 1:30 - 6:45 on the east coast, then do the math accordingly).
A joint venture between Al Jazeera and Time Warner, which is a little bothersome, but hell - if they are into showing Johnny Green and SBK, I am into watching it.
Speed loses their last 5 man-cards for this one. Epic Fail.
Agreed, this station has gone to sh#$.Went looking to see when WSBK was on and just found out they aren't carrying it.I guess they have become like MTV,no music,Speed ,no racing.Lets watch a bunch of reality programing.leave it to Fox to screw things up!!!!!
