1 hr time slot , to show a 35min moto.
That is a 25 min gap to play with.
Pause the race when they go to a commercial
Then start airing the moto exactly where they left off!

I have seen plenty of racing broadcasts that do it this way.
We are paying to watch a race......not be force fed commercials and then only get 70% of the race!

They double dipped here..... collecting money from us + still running sponsored ads. Was bullshit!
ThAts not what people want in 2022 with social media. You don’t want to see racerX updates on twitter while the broadcast is at a commercial.

We’ve had commercial free MX for at least 5 years now it seems. It shouldn’t be this complicated.

On a broader topic in terms of making the sport better for tv. It would help to shorten to the Moto’s to 20-25 minutes so it could fit in a 2-3 time window instead of 4. 4 is way to long for most people to sit and watch.

You don't shorten Motos.......period! That's stupid! Believe it or not....Motos back in the day , started out at 45mins long.

My point was , if they can't broadcast the full 35mins strait , then pause it! There is literally no other way , unless they go with no interruptions what so ever , which does not sound like what they are willing to do.

Shorten the Motos? Blasphemy!

I'd wait. There is still not clarity to whether the streams will be ad free or not.

Let's be honest here. How hard is it, as a already existing racing broadcast network, to get this right? All you have to do is:

Let the motos play live uninterrupted.
Don't run commercials during the race.
Don't play any dumb features over the racing and not go back to what we missed, just don't.
Play commercials between the end of the race and interviews, then again after interviews until the next moto's parade lap.
Don't watch ONLY 2 riders the whole race while missing the actual racing in the top 5..

This shouldn't be that hard..

Replay the next day was commercial free and the coverage continued, not just a blank screen. So don't watch it live, then you get the whole race.

So in my blissful ignorance, i thought it would be a good service and paid for a yearly subscription to support the platform...
No refund here....
Guess I'm stuck with it.

I was pretty miffed last weekend , but I want to try and give them another round or two before I make a decision. Actually paid monthly , so 4 rounds I guess.

You and me both. I've got the dreaded directTV and MAVTV. I started my viewing 1 hour and 10 minutes into the races. With my fast forwarding through commercials and fluff commentary, I caught up with real time broadcast right at the very end. So it was basically 2 hours and 50 minutes of pretty damned good television.

Other than wishing Anderson went 1-1 Smile
X3.... dvr... wait one hour.... then fast forward through all the commercials... then caught up by the last 450 moto.... easy peasy...

Based on the statement they put out, that they are on the issue and hope to have it resolved at some point this season, and the fact that they have already refunded many of their subscribers... It doesnt seem as if they will have this issue sorted out anytime soon.

Seems kind of odd they are cancelling subscriptions instead of just refunding, or giving a free month. Makes me wonder what is really going on.

I signed up through the website, paid for 1 month, everything worked just fine, but I couldn't log in and watch on the mavtvplus app on my TV. When I notified mavtv, they said there was no record of my account. I can still access everything on the website and it won't let me cancel my subscription because it says I have no subscription. There have been no charges to my credit card.

It will be if you know what channels to look on. They usually stay up for a day or so before getting knicked.

I got the same notification as Maverick. I'm on the monthly plan. If they don't get the subscribed streaming service commercial free, I will be one and done monthly with MAV. I like watching Pro MX, but not enough to pay and get commercials. I already pay for MXGP and MotoGP and I can probably get enough racing fix this summer.

I'm hopeful this all gets sorted out, but if not I'll speak with my wallet.

Just a heads up - the MAVTV app for FireTV is down also.

Consider using the YouTube app on FireTV tomorrow for practice and the show.

I didn't get the email but just checked my bank statement and saw it was refunded, checked the app and says everything is locked.

I just checked my statements and no refund, just the original monthly charge on May 27. I'll check the app once I'm back at home, but wow this is a shitshow.

Last season Peacock worked fine and for international viewers we still had NBC Sports Gold which also worked fine. I get that NBC restructured a lot of its broadcasting and maybe there was no good home for Pro MX, but it really seems as though MavTV was not prepared to handle this at all.

I actually got the refund first, then a debit. Weird.

It’s back up on Firestick but I did have to log back in to make it work.

Ok so I've had this happen to me twice. I contacted google play (who the cancelation came from). They told me it was and issue with my bank cancellinging it.
