ITV coverage of BSB

Well another week of crap coverage of BSB by ITV. Highlights of race one and full coverage of race two. ITV seems to miss the point with motorcycle fans. We want to see the whole race! I wonder if they would show a football match by showing highlights of the first half and full coverage of the second half ? No they wouldnt so why are they doing it to BSB. If you cant be assed to show it all then dont show it at all and leave it with Sky where it was good full coverage of the main avent and support races.
Is it just me or am I right?

I guess my cup is half full.

I am just happy that they are showing it on race day, if limited coverage, rather than a 30 min highglight spot a few weeks later when we already know all the results.

Market forces and all that i suppose. I guess we'll have to face it, we're a minority interest group.

Rgds, Rob

I'm with Rob B on this one.

I was very surprised to see it at all. Well done to ITV for at least having a go.

Not everyone can afford the Sky 'sports' package.

But, it is a shame that its not on Eurosport.

i agree with some coverage is better than none but what about the poor quality of commentary, the poor visual aids they use the complete lack of knowledge by all ( except whitham )

i used to begrudge paying the extra just for 5hours of bsb every other weeknd, now i understand why i did and why i would be happy to pay for sky for the excellent coverage they used to give

rant over

I thought the 3 and a half hours of BSB action was very good actually.




...oops, that was on SKY weren't it

Sorry
