So I guess instead of showing the track during commercial break peacock decided to run commercials even when people pay for no commercials. Got it….

Yeah and last year there was a thread whining about the dead time and they should have ads.

Bro we used to watch races 3 days after the race at midnight. Now you can watch practice all day. You can pause, rewind, rewarch the races all week, etc...

Sit back, relax and enjoy life.

When you pay for no commercials it should be mean no commercials. Maybe I’m old school and expect when you pay for no commercials they don’t run them. I would much rather watch the dozers do work.

3 days after? You kids had it easy!!!

We used to wait 6 months or so to get snippets of the 500 USGP mixed in with other sports to get our annual MX TV fix…..!

Good observation. I prefer to watch the dirt crew do some maintenance on the track.

Paid for no commercials. May as well be watching it on CNBC for free. Maybe peacock screwed up?

In SX it’s not that big of a deal but if they do this same shit for outdoors I’ll be pissed for sure.

We only have the 5 dollar account that is supposed to play commercials... Am I gonna see double commercials?

Also, when Feld showed the races on broadcast, they bought the time and sold the commercials themselves. Is this what they are doing with NBC?

Why do you care? The commercials are not during the racing? You want more Leigh and Ricky?

Seems they sneakily changed the package. Double the price now to have no commercials. Probably not worth paying that. Hate commercials though.

No I want more Dozers. That being said I switched to watching it on CNBC, since peacock kept buffering and blurring out. No it’s not my internet I have 1 Gig, and CNBC is streaming perfectly.

Absolutely garbage. The trick is the second the commercials start click back and immediately open the race and it goes to the coverage will begin shortly page

or you could just relax, get up, take a leak, mess with the dog for a bit, then grab a fresh beer when the racing comes back on!

I'm old school... I'm happy as f..k to watch all afternoon practice qualifiers, then night time mains for 4.99

Dead time in between moto's gives me time to make popcorn, drink, take a piss, maybe rub a quick one off Evil

He's on a 125 for west coast. 250 when the series goes east.

He's got a YouTube channel.

Actually super annoying with the streaming consistency on Peacock. I have 300 down and I can watch four 4k streams at once but peacock resolution goes up and down constantly. Even on shows that arent live streaming. Like parks and rec or the office. This isnt 2010 ffs. People on Twitch have better looking streams with garbage cable internet. Multi billion dollar company streaming on ADSL.

That is my biggest gripe is the constant buffering followed by crappy resolution on the live peacock events. It was the same last year, and they still haven’t fixed it just added ads to plans that pay speficially for no ads.

My only gripe is it keeps jumping back to the 250 heat for no reason. Jumped on here to see if anyone else is experiencing the same

That’s what happens when you get suckered into paying for something that should be free.

I have the $10/mo plan and there were still ads. As others mentioned they seemed to have snuck it in. I noticed ads during SNF games this fall. I don’t mind if they’re moto brands but most were the trash you see elsewhere like State Farm, gmc, capital one, etc…that’s the reason I pay for is so I don’t have to see/hear to the repetitive shit. Thankful to have a streaming pkg so I don’t have to rely on tv broadcast where it would get interrupted by a beer pong tournament running late or CNBC cutting it off for a stock market show at 12a when the 450 main just started but was 20 min late due to the injuries.

From what I remember there were no ads on peacock for SX or MX in 2021

Their commercial free Premium Plus plan is so you can watch their movies and tv shows commercial free, not the live streams. They even state that some programs will still have some when you go premium, but apparently none of you read that and just want to bitch on here, just like you do on damn near every other thread.
