That sucks....I have the MotoGP Video Pass so this doesn't impact me but will likely impact others.

My suggestion if you don't have BeIN sports or can't add it for a reasonable price is to what I have done:

Buy the MotoGP Video Pass, use my iPad to stream it to my AppleTV box.  It is great quality and you get all practice, qualifying and races live or recorded.  Good stuff!

Well, this is just plain weird, but at least we won't have to listen to Ralph Sheheen's gushy race intros on BeIn, hopefully.

About $110...well worth it if you are a big race fan.  All practices, qualifying and races for Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP.  No commercials or breaks in the action.

I've got video pass too. Totally worth every dime.  I give it as a birthday present to myself every year.

The actual race coverage and analysis is really good; three Brits, two in the commentary box and one in the pit lane.  Very knowledgeable. No fluff.

Previously I TiVo'd the races and watched them at my leisure later in the day. It is easy enough to avoid accidentally seeing the results of a MotoGp race in the states.

If I get the package, can I watch the races later, or must I watch them live? If I can watch them delayed, is it easy to navigate the site without accidentally seeing the results first?

My life just got so much more difficult!  bang head

My local group of riding buddies usually has at least one member who has a membership (MotoGP). We just share the account information among ourselves. You can log on any time you want and watch whenever you want. Covers alot of pre-race stuff, post race press conferences, the whole deal.
Racing in Europe and other parts of the world is like golf or baseball in this country, wall to wall coverage.

Yes to all your questions.  They have a "no spoiler" option you can turn on to avoid seeing the results.

Can multiple people log in at the same time or does it kick one person out when the other logs in?  I figured it would kick one of the people out.  Otherwise, there could be a 100 people using the same account....$1 each for the year.!!!

This is what I was hoping for.

Do you suppose I could access this through my TV's web browser and avoid the Apple TV solution you use Swanny?

As far as I know. We never had a problem.

No clue.  I am not that technical so hopefully someone else will chime in.

I watch the racing on my laptop.  It's a MacBook Air so the picture definition is awsome and the sound is really pretty good too.  Of course Beats headphones make it better  Evil

Once you subscribe, you can bookmark the MotoGP webpage that's called "No Spoiler."  I rarely watch the races live but you can access any of the practice, qualifying and racing action anytime.  The whole season eventually is captured on this page.  All of the Moto2 and Moto3 sessions as well.
