After looking at our TV guides, all Australian fans of SX will notice we do NOT have Supercross live on our screens this year. Does this make anyone else mad? It's not as bad as 10 years ago when it wasn't on TV until the Friday after the race over here, but this is 2015 (well almost)! We had it live last year (all except Daytona which wasn't on at all), but what the hell! Is there an Internet subscriprion we can use, doesn't bother me if I have to pay cause this is bullshit. Does anyone know why?

Found this in the press release for the TV schedule:

Monster Energy Supercross’ international television footprint, which reached over 100 countries in 2014, will be announced soon and will once again include live television in Australia, among others. All in, there has never been more live television, more viewers, or more global broadcast hours for Monster Energy Supercross.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Man that sucks, I always look forward to doing my moto's early sunday morning, then coming home at 12-1pm and watching it live,
it will be tough trying to stay off Facebook, so it doesn't get spoiled sad

JB, ill have no choice but to check out results and post them before seeing the race.

A double blow now as well, going to 41 degrees in South Aus on Saturday so chances of slipping out for even a early Sunday morning ride are not looking good, ill be stuck looking for a live stream or hoping my email helps change the people over at Foxtel / ESPN in Australia's minds about replaying some shit for the 1 millionth time and put the live SX on.

Especially when there are SIX Aussies lining up and every chance we could see 4-5 Aussies in the 450 main event.

Imagine 5 Aussies in the main event! 1/4 of the field from AUS!!!

- Reed

- Metcalfe
- Richardson

Byrne is only a test/fill in rider for 22 motorsports. Who's the other?

Yeah pretty fucked. I wanted to do a big lunch bbq for the boys watching the first round. Still going to do it but somebody will be drunk and yell out the results during the race.

Where did you find that press release?

Not a creek

Not a river

But a stream will do

As long as it works, and time wise doesnt clash with the locals using 'fart book' or 'slime' to show their last meal and newest turd.

Mr Lee Van Cleef wouldnt mind

Not pumped after reading this thread. We have had it live now for a couple of years on pay tv. On delay will have to do. I hope what mmitoptech said is correct, and we will actually get it live.

Has anyone tried sharing a live SX broadcast over Skype to a friend? Imagine the screen might flicker but the audio would make it. I would be up for sharing but I haven't had a TV in going on three years so most races I catch on my girlfriend's DVR or via streaming after the race since I do have high speed wi fi. Now if I could only keep from watching Live Wire so the results are fresh to me when I watch the race.....but that isn't likely to happen either.

On a related note I just read in the US the cable companies now provide more Internet connections than they provide TV service too. Bill Gates said five or six years ago the broadcast model we've used for ever days are numbered. In the future the majority of things will be on demand via the Internet.......and 99 percent reality shows.

Monea and Jake Moss both flew out yesterday.

The NPS Monster Energy Kawasaki team from Australia is heading over, the whole team, riders, mechanics.

Both Moss brothers and Monea will only run the first Six rounds before returning to Aus for the MX Nationals.

Ill have a short article up on Fullnoise tomorrow

Monea will be running the #103 , not sure about Jake.

Richardson rocking the #57 in 2015.

I thought Richardson was running the East coast but looks like West, Hayden Mellross and Taylor Potter will both run the entire East Coast series in the 250 class.

This. Allthought i am really thankfull to all the streamers out there making it possible for us to view it live afterall.
I am aware that it's a really small market, i mean who is gonna stay up untill 5 - 7 am to see the west coast main events ? I AM.
I wish there was an legit platform like MxGP has where we can just pay for HD broadcasts, yes i wouldn't mind paying for it.

In conclusion, if anyone in the USA wants to make some beer $$, please sort us Aussies / Kiwis etc out a private stream, most normal streams are pretty notchy for me, I would pay us$20 per round if I can guarantee a good quality stream that doesn't shit itself... I often get up at 4am NZ time to watch the racing anyway, paying $20 is nothing.

Someone PM me if they sort it, churr.

I wonder how much support their getting from kawi? Its has too cost alot of money to send their whole team over... Its a big risk aswell. But the more aussies the better. Keen to see how Jatz does , he always seems to ride better overseas.

The team like all teams in Australia is privately owned, even the Factory teams! Really the Factory teams in Aus are Factory supported teams.

Troy Carroll Motorsports runs the Kawasaki team in Australia, private sponsors will be fitting the bill for the U.S trip, It is more than just a trip to the U.S for SX, it is a training camp for the entire team with plenty of testing and training being done between the races in the U.S.

Looks like this will not be a one of type deal and you could quite possibly see the team over every year for the first Six rounds of SX and training for Aus series.

Jake and Monea will both be on their Australian spec bikes, the same with Matt Moss this year, the team have taken over their own race bikes to run with, I think he will do even better than he did last year to be honest. Familiar equipment can only help, especially compared to the near stock bike he was on last year in the U.S.

I wouldn't sweat on A1 not being live in Aus just yet. It may be on the channel where you can select what you want to watch

Just had a look to see what we are competing with, Live NFL Playoffs and Live NBA Heat v Rockets, yep we may not get it Live after all.

|

12/27/2014 5:40 PM

They could put it on after the Heat V Rockets game, skip all the pre race stuff skip a few commercials and be back in live timing by the time the main events start.

We have 360 likes on FB post so far, maybe if all 380 people ring up Foxtel at the same time on Monday morning all cancelling their accounts someone may change something smile

Seriously thinking of cancelling my subscription, only have it for AMA SX, MotoGp and WSBK, considering I can purchase GP and WSBK stream packages along with MXGP live streaming it really is only the American Supercross I have it for!

Obviously want live coverage as well, I think here in nz we get the same coverage as Aussie on espn. In saying that, it's not the end of the world, easy enough as mentioned to find a live stream, or they are uploaded to youtube by Sunday evening anyway. Actually works well watching in the evening, means it can rid all day, have dinner, put kid to bed, the settle in to a evening if racing.
