beIN SPORTS Announces New Deal That’ll See MotoGP Aired Alongside World Superbike and MotoAmerica All coverage to be aired on beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS en Espanol, and beIN SPORTS CONNECT.
There’s no doubt beIN SPORTS made a big push to get the MotoGP World Championship aired on its network in part because of the fan base that recent rivalries and one Valentino Rossi has created. Now, MotoGP, World Superbike, and MotoAmerica will all be aired on a single channel.
The 2016 MotoGP season is shaping up to be an entertaining one thanks to a sweet concoction of budding rivalries, rule changes, and a new spec tire. Chances are you’re not going to want to miss out on any of the action, and for 2016, that’s where beIN SPORTS comes into play.
That’s because the network has officially signed a deal that’ll see the MotoGP World Championship aired alongside the World Superbike Championship and MotoAmerica on beIN SPORTS, beIN SPORTS en Espanol, and beIN SPORTS CONNECT, the latter option enabling you to watch the races from your PC, tablet, or smart phone. Now, “North American viewers will have unrivalled access to every lap of the world’s premier motorcycle roadracing championships,” suggests Dorna and beIN SPORTS.
In addition to the race coverage, beIN SPORTS says that it will also be producing/featuring original news, editorial analysis, and multimedia elements, with insight from the network’s top sports journalists. Another interesting point is that this will also be the first time that MotoGP will be aired in Spanish in the US, which should help with “expanding the reach of the sport to its maximum,” says Manel Arroyo, Managing Director, TV & Media Area, Dorna Sports.
Of course, it’ll be interesting to see how many people call up their local provider and upgrade to a package that include beIN SPORTS (if they haven’t already for the network’s World Superbike coverage). There will obviously be a monthly price increase as they jump up to a package that include beIN SPORTS, but with MotoGP, World Superbike, and MotoAmerica now all in the same place, there’s obviously a reason to tune in.
Let us know, will you be one of those people, or do you plan on getting/continuing to get your race coverage from other pay-to-play accounts like MotoGP.com?
