Hey guys, wife made me ditch the cable package cause it was a pile of cash.

Most of the programming rubbish I don't care about and hardly watched anyways, however I have to watch the Monster Cup/ and 2019 Supercross races. Some live, and some recorded.

How can I do this reliably? The ability to fast forward when watching a recorded version is a must.

Please advise how I can do this, and will I even save any money in this ordeal?

Thanks!

I had pretty good results using SlingTV last year for races, I think it has a DVR option for extra cost if I recall but I never need/ed it. Otherwise if the NBC Gold App is covering SX this year you may just want to snag that, it's great for outdoors.

Might order a pizza, take a nap, doesn't really matter.

NBC Sports Gold if what I saw this morning pans out. Totally worth it.

I just checked my NBC Sports Gold app, went to Replays...then “edit filter”. Look what popped up. SUPERCROSS! I think it’s all good, it was worth it for Pro Motocross. Can’t wait

There is usually a guy or two on YouTube who post the races the day after the race.

Hopefully its aired on NBCSports channel and not just the app.

I only use a PS4 so Sling isn't an option for me. The Playstation Vue is amazing though, pretty much the same thing and you can pick certain packages monthly. SX may end up on the NBC sports channel but either way I'll probably end up buying the year long subscription to get both SX & MX with all the extras and to be live. I cannot frikin stand when it's recorded.

Apps like Morpheus, freeflicks, and many others. Plus just using basic internet browsers.

It looks like 3 races will be on delay (A2, Indianapolis and Nashville). Hopefully that means there won't be any weeks where the starts of the races are on some other channel, like would often happen with FOX Sports.

The good news is that I'm pretty sure that with the gold app things aren't delayed. The races will air live no matter what's on TV. I'm really hoping the app is not restricted to the US only. It seems odd to me seeing as we can watch MX from different countries. $90 for both SX/MX packages is a good deal. $130 for SX only from Feld on the other hand is not a good deal.

ive saved lots of money with an Amazon fire tv box ... prefer it over the fire stick.
Theres 2 free apps Mobdro and LiveNetTV which i used last year to watch Fox Sports 1. I also had IPTV for 3 months in the summer. It allowed me to never miss a race when i went to friends house Sat to party I would hook it up on their TV and play it in the background and watch it every now and then.


Also just quickly, any "android" box can do this and run the same apps but i have had better reliability with the Amazon Fire than a couple other common android boxes and the interface looks better/more simple. I compare the Amazon Fire looking more like an iPhone than an android interface.



You can also use Terrarium (Free version of Netflix) ..... Unlike Netflix which only has a " limited" selection; Terrarium has almost every show or movie ever old to current that actually updates on what seems like a minute by minute basis

Im currently watching a show that aired 30 minutes ago in good qualities with no commercials

Did that 2 years ago with AppleTV and PSVue. Yes, there's money saved and the whole TV experience is better as well.

We cut the cord, thank God. Bought a nice outdoor antenna (pulled in 38 channels), and a Roku with Sling for all things Moto. Alot of folks don’t realize how many free networks are available that are quite enjoyable. We aren’t tight asses by any stretch, but it just pushed us to the limit when it was costing over 140 a month to watch TV. The antenna cost 120, and can support 5 TV’s, so that’s free and clear. The Roku was 30, and when you activate Sling it’s 25 a month. All we use is WiFi for all of it, and we pay 45 a month for unlimited that has never slowed once in two years. If we didn’t pay for Sling useage, our entire home entertainment budget would be a whopping 45 bucks a month solely for internet. Cut the damn cord, the Roku alone has a shit ton of free shit to watch as long as your internet is solid.

DirecTV family package for only $30 a month gets you all the MX and SX races, hard to beat that.

Yep I pay $40 per month for a good package with direct tv. I dropped dish a few weeks ago. I got tired of paying $120 per month.

I tried cutting the cord but all that did was use up my internet. Unbeknownst to me my internet service provider has a data limit and with using internet to watch tv I used it up fast. I’m super happy with Direct TV though. The platform isn’t as easy to navigate as dish’s was but for 1/3 of the price I’ll take it.

The SX app looks like US$130 for the season.
Seems somewhere between “steep”, and “rip off”.

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it
