Guys we have to come to the understanding that most of the world does not care about MX. Yes I know it sucks but it's reality. Instead of bitching all the time go and get Direct TV. You get all the channels that it is broadcast on. Yes I know all the motos are not live but with fuel you get both first motos and NBC sports you get the second motos. Just be glad (for now) that we get to watch every moto. It might be on at midnight but that's what a dvr is for. Even during supercross when it wasn't live I would be all over live timing and scoring but I still would end up watching the race the next day. If the money was there I'm sure every moto event would be live but until that happens here this is my suggestion to get your fix! This is the entire reason i got Direct TV. No disrespect to anybody but it just gets old seeing all these threads bitching about the TV schedule or when and what channel.

If I could pay to watch the nationals in 1080 HD streamed live on a dedicated website like the gp's I would.

Trying to watch the 250 class on a Portuguese blurry stream whilst a ting tings song is playing and some div saying "congrats you've won" in the background isn't great.

Certainly a step back from last year being able to watch the nationals on motors tv live.

TV coverage today was awesome. All 4 motos lives. Total time spent switching channels........8 seconds. I used to think motocross people were tough and cool. Not any more. Largest pile of steaming shit in any sport that I follow.

Yeah you guys outside of the United States get screwed. I agree with your statement. This was more directed to the people that can do something about. I'm not even sure if Direct Tv is available outside of the U.S.

But everyone can get Direct TV to get all the channels. Not trying to start a war on here just letting people know that may have not been aware. That way you do not have to work about what the local station decides to air as well.

Exactly I have every sports channel on my area Comcast lineup and still don't have Fuel TV. I'm not mad at anyone but Comcast though. I just wish I could have watched the second 250 moto on my birthday.

Amen. Not to mention that a DVR search for "motocross" cannot find the first 450 moto....and the supposed live feed has been pre-empted with some gay ass bass fishing or dike ball.

yeap wait one day and d/l if you don't get the channels or missed the multiple channel changes, small inconvenience for same day coverage.

Think back over the years the coverage is getting better, just wish I got FUEL in HD...

On the 450s my DVr recorded the 2nd 450 moto on two channels, one Hd And one not hd so it bumped 2nd 250 moto, I had it set to record Motocross oh well, I reckon I should have stayed home to monitor the situation.

could be worse, back in the 90's speed would randomly show outdated sx's at ridiculous times of the day. My best friend and i would be riding bicycles on his dirt trails in his back yard and his dad would yell at us to get in and watch while we could before dinner.

I never got the first 450 moto and recorded 3 time slots like usual. I guess I screwed up....

all 4 motos on FUEL.tv...NBC coverage isn't doing anything for this sport...

how will people ever understand the sport if they can't see it in full...

NAME 1 OTHER SPORT THAT HAS TO BE WATCHED IN 4 PARTS ON 2 DIFFERENT CHANNELS...

and where is SPEED channel when you need them...

don't believe the hype

I went riding all day. Missed all the motos. Why waste your day trying to watch a multitude of channels when the DVR records MMA or whatever is prempting moto. My bike is happy and I'm tired from doing something totally fullfilling! Go figure.

I have Direct TV. It recorded the first and second moto of the 450. It did not record the 250 which is the one I really wanted to see. They will rebroadcast it tomorrow on Fuel and the DVR is set to record those but the DRV has been recording on Fuel, but this time just didn't and it is at the top of the list for recording. The DVR did not record like it was suppose to which is not a problem with the broadcasts, but Direct TV. I will have to monitor it more and check every friday to see if all the motos are going to record.
