I am so confused on whats going on with my account, i got this in my "history" in my gold account:

"NBC Sports Gold has granted you free access to Supercross Pass!"

This has been since 2018, and when i go to buy the combined package i get this, I dont know what to do.

To all the people looking for "the Promo Code". Someone came on here a week or so ago and "shared" a private promo code. THe code was HOLIDAY. It worked for a day or so and then was turned off. I guess it was not supposed to be shared on here and they caught on quickly. I tried it and it didnt work.

I have searched for a week and I dont think there is any other codes. Its just going to cost 89.00 bucks now.

Hope that helps.

Thanks, man. I figured I was a day late and a dollar short.

Forget all the code nonsense. Get a Roku,hook it to the tv, pay the $90, watch the races. No drama.

I had issues with it recently using my phone. Kept kicking me off and rebooting. Switched devices and problem went away. Flawless. My old Samsung must be running out of memory.

I didn’t have auto renew turned on and I didn’t get the email for the half price promo code, I have since turned on the auto renew and and will be charged 89.99, I don’t think it’s that bad of a deal.

That's not what this thread is about.

There never was a Promo code email

That's what I got, and I hadn't paid a dime this year my card is expired I used last year. I can see all replays and the system says I'm good to go for another year. I expect they will discover their mistake right before a main gate drop.

It's funny, some dudes will pay $100 for just one night of UFC, but $90 for all of SX and MX is too much.

Ya, some will, but not me because I’m on a tight budget currently. If they want to try to charge me another $100 I’m out.

On my NBC Sports app on my phone, I can view all of 2019 seasons content. From my Firestick, the only replay it shows available is the 2020 Preview Show. None of the motocross content is available on the app, from the firestick either. I checked and my subscription is still active. Anyone know any remedies for this?

There isn't one anymore. The one being used apparently wasn't supposed to be for the SX/MX package and when someone asked them about it they responded that there was no discount code and that's when the one being used stopped working for people. I was able to buy my package for $45 before the code was shut down.

It the worse service I have ever putchased.Its sad that you have to buy such a bad product to watch the races. I decided to either go to the bar and watch or wait for the races on Youtube.

Can you expand on this?? Because it honestly sounds like a "you" problem... Perhaps something you should take up with your ISP; or the router/modem you have in your home. Absolutely zero issues, zero complaints here. The only thing better than paying $85 last year for flawless streaming of every SX & MX race last season, was paying $45 this season for every SX & MX race this season!

I did get the email the OP referenced sent to the email address I used last season... but definitely not to my work email address, which is the one I used to sign up for the discounted $45 promo code this season

I may be able to expand a little, but not necessarily his specific issues...

I have had the gold pass for Motocross since it became avalable (three or four years now) and I bought the SX pass last year too. I plan to buy it again and have no complaints, in fact as a guy who doesn't own a TV or have any television service in my home I am quite happy with NBC Sports Gold. For the price it's a no-brainer and the quality is excellent on my end. The streaming is crystal clear, almost always comes through in HD and almost never hiccups or pauses to buffer. All on the basic internet package.

Probable issues:
I have brought my laptop computer to a few buddy's homes when they invited me to watch the race. We get together, bench race, BBQ, you guys know the deal.

Friend #1 lives two houses over, a long time friend on the same cable internet service provider with the same internet service plan (same up/down speeds) that I have. On his connection the service is occasionally notchy (buffering) and always looks a little lower quality than his digital cable feed. He lives on a cable node with three or four other neighbors. I seem to be on my own cable node and I think that's the difference.

Friend #2 lives in a more built up area, less rural /more suburbs. His connection is always in a less than HD video quality. He has all the bells and whistles on his digital cable, but his internet is a basic speed. Once and a while it buffers and the video pauses during that time. It's frustrating to watch on the gold app, so we just live with the commercials to get the higher quality at his place.

Long story short, I think you're barking up the right tree; I think the ISP, the internet plan you're paying for, and how many people are on your particular internet node all matter for a streaming service like this one.

I believe in another thread someone emailed NBC and it's some sort of issue with the new app. I can play them via my computer, however with my fire stick or the app on my iPad they are not viewable.

I've been plugging my laptop to my tv with hdmi to see them. Kind of a pain, but got to get that fix in prior to A1!!!!

No one is stopping you from hooking up your VCR and recording the races.

You know, you don't have to buy the app to watch the races and you can still record the races with a DVR for "free".

Search "my internet speed" in google and post your results.



I'm not a fool. It has worked flawless since day one on my end. It has worked flawless on the road too. I would stream it through my phone to bluetooth and listen while traveling to work.

Im guessing your internet has the download speed of 3G cell phone. So the problem would be on your end.

I think using a DVR is asking too much. I mean you usually have to pay extra for a DVR, and then the races are recorded to some imaginary place and not on a good old VHS. DVR’s are a total scam.

I just had to give up on the service during the beginning of the outdoor season due to bad service. I have a good feed, go through ROKU, and I always had to log back in every time that I viewed SX/MX, every time, with these damn codes they want you to input. The main problem was it would not log in for 20-60 minutes if at all every time. I was only able to watch about half the races live(and usually missed the first part of it due to login issues), and when I inquired about the issue with NBC they were no help at all. It was a great price/bargain for viewing all the races, but this major issue that I encountered just gave me a bad taste and I did not renew. Not sniveling just sharing my experience with it, and to all of you that have not had any problems.....kudo's and enjoy it.

Thx for the info as I was considering giving up the roku and going with something else. That may sway me back to the service, but probably not this season.

If you didn't manually turn off the auto-renew in your account settings then you did renew by default.
