How would you rate your NBA gold package experience for the MX season?

I picked up an Apple TV to watch it with. I give it a B+.

If I were to nitpick, it took to long to go from live TV to replay status. Sometimes starting up, the feed would be intermittent, I would have to re-boot the app. The fast forward and rewind feature on the replays were horrible, not sure if that is an Apple TV thing or not though.

I would definitely do it again next year, however I like it better last year through NBC Sports/ MAV when it was free

I think the camera changes could be handled better...as in they don't need to focus on one rider when there's a battle going on further up the field. Also was disappointed to hear podium interviews while seeing empty track and so on. B-


Many thanks to everyone helping me out this GNCC season: SRT Offroad, Acerbis, FCR Suspension, O'Neal Racing, Evans Waterless Coolants, Rekluse, Twin Air, Braking Brakes, Carbsport

I was surprised at this, but I actually enjoyed watching practice and qualifying. I thought all the commentators did a good job with background and side stories during the practice telecast.

Just be glad you didn't have to purchase FELD's SX streaming package. This year was my first and last purchase of FELD's SX coverage. I would rather watch them for free on YouTube the next day than waste 120 euros for something that never really worked.


8/27/2017 2:57 PM

Is the FELD SX streaming package the only way to see this years upcoming SX? Looking to cut the Dish soon but want to know how to watch live SX?

I thought the service itself and the coverage was pretty good, but seriously, the producer of the broadcast needs to be fired. My god, they spend so much time not even focused on most important parts of the race. Like yesterday, we missed both passes for the lead in the first 250 moto, one of which involved a crash. How do you fuck that up?

A. Love the quick turnaround on replays.

Speaking of only my happiness with the App and the ability to watch everything? Definitely a solid A, and will buy again.

That said, the ability of the production staff to show anything relevant during the race? C'ish at best.

A-. Only had streaming issues in the last two races, the rest of the time was great. The production etc could use some work but that is geared towards the actual tv stream. I really don't care for replays of stuff that just happened when there's still great racing happening or watching someone's start garmin cam from the first moto; 15 minutes into the second moto.


8/27/2017 4:10 PM

For the App itself, I give it an A-. It was very good and they had a few hiccups but I'll buy it again (hopefully for the same price)

The production of the show itself leaves a lot to be desired


8/27/2017 4:20 PM

The only thing I'd really like to see added is an option to start from the beginning if I get to watching it 20 minutes late. At that point I have to wait an hour till replay to be able to start from the beginning... Other than that I'll buy it as long as they offer it

It's pretty damn good overall but a few glitches in streaming here or there - could be my provider. Well worth the $50 and I would give it a B+.


8/27/2017 4:43 PM

The app still needs work, like automatically advancing to the next moto instead of me having to go back to the start page refreshing and then manually hitting the 'play' button after every race. If I didn't do this I would get "coverage has concluded" after every moto. Kind of annoying, but overall it was a improvement being able to stream to my big screen in glorious HD! My only problem the whole season was the last race for some reason the video quality wasn't very good.

I'd give it a solid B+


8/27/2017 5:31 PM

I'll probably end up buying it again next year, but I'm not happy about it. Commercial free, being able to watch live and replays, practice is awesome. Randomly having to restart the browser because the stream gets to sucking, the "coverage will start soon" message is aggravating, and for the love of God can somebody make it default to motocross since that's the only thing I'm paying for. The excessive in race replays, and product spotlights are irritating. Commercial free to me means commercial free, product spotlights are commercials.


8/27/2017 5:34 PM

Any time I can watch commercial free moto it's an A+

I got an email from NBC Sports with a link to fill out a survey form and to give feedback about the package.
Did anyone else get it?


8/27/2017 5:56 PM

AC gives it a low rating..


2018 CRF250R

From a technology and reliability standpoint I give it an A.

From an actual production standpoint, cameras,interviews, dead time etc. I'd give it a C.

I assume sometimes the camera guys are either texting, masturbating, or recoving from a hangover, because some of them are just completely tuned out when the camera goes to them. Really piss poor camera work sometimes.

Georgia is aces as usual though. And the guys in the booth were fine all year. Grant is awesome in my opinion.


8/27/2017 6:22 PM

The app: A

The crew: A

The Producer and cameramen: C-

Did anyone else ...more

I got it and did the survey. The last couple races I had issues, so that cost them a point. I gave them a 4 out of 5.

No commercials, tip top commentators with Weege, GL & GL = A+

The App worked well on my Amazon Stick for the most part, hiccups here and there but it's to be expected.

As long as it stays $50 or less it's a winner.

solid A from me. will buy again.

NBC Stream was good for me except for 1 times when it was having some issues but it cleared up.

weege/langston were on top of it.

georgia was good all season.

sometimes the camera switching is way off. imagine its pretty hard to produce and overall do an OK job but that can improve.

For me, not having to figure out a calculus equation on how to watch it on TV was worth it all by itself. Its awesome to know that when the racing starts, you just sit down and watch it. I give it an A for delivery and ease of use.

TBH, I think $50 is cheap.


much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

8/27/2017 7:20 PM

I thought it was great and definitely would buy again.


Indecision is a choice

8/27/2017 7:24 PM

if you didn't buy it but want to see all the replays, I see it's on sale for half price and you can watch what ever you want until May next year


8/27/2017 8:35 PM

A - 95/100. Worked good, some minor quirks in the app with refreshing what is coming next. Production crew and commentators definitely an A


I'm goin' off the rails on a crazy train

8/27/2017 8:57 PM

I give it an A and would buy it again

you gotta admit. we are in a special time of instant coverage. one race this season I started watching it on a tv, traveled to my cabin watching it on my Ipad (gold) and then when i got there logged into my PC and watched the rest of it. never missed a minute of 4hrs of racing.
