    Default WSBK this weekend

    It appears that there is no TV contract for WSBK yet. Does anyone know of any links for watching?

    Great, it will be on a crap azzz, no name, internet soccer website channel. That seems totally logical. I love how they mention that its not listed on their schedule, that they might not televise it, or that they will probably just stream it. I mean if they were high bidders for the rights we could have all probably chipped in twenty and out bid them. The TSBA could have owned the US WSBK rights then.

    Well I just called Dish and made sure I had that channel so I can watch it. By the way the last I read that Speed does not have a contract for MotoGP either.

    Yes, they are going to show all 3 races live.

    We will no longer have to worry about missing the last 3 laps of a race because they cut away to show ASScar warming up. BUUUUTTTT, we might miss the last 3 laps because they cut away to show some soccer team warming up!

    The beIN Network was great. Entire races with no commercial interruptions. They did have soccer stuff in between but that was easy to fast forward through. Lots of commentary that was normally edited out. Good stuff.

    Great coverage. I had to watch it online because my DirecTV package did not carry bein and I am not upgrading to the top tier package. I will be switching to Dish to get that channel.

    I'm with Dish and you still have the get their top tier to get the channel. Or a sports package. (I think on the sports package)

    I just added the sports package to my DirectTV programming. It's $12.99 a month with $5 off for 3 months.

    Called Direct TV and they wanted to sell me $125/mo package with whooping $15 per month discount when I am paying $72 now. Ended up dropping DirecTV and ordered Dish. Will get upgrade on equipment (my DirecTV stuff was 4 yo.), will get more programming including beIn, all for $40 per month for 1st year and $75 per month after that. Oh well, Direct TV didn't want my business. The whole home HD/DVR will be cool.
