BSB: ITV to drop British Superbikes this season

Not good - Lets hope that Eurosport shows it all....

Johnathan Palmer has taken over the rights to BSB, said he will make it better, but seems like he's lost a huge audiance if this is right.Sponsers and teams must be worried

Thought it was going to ITV4 instead?

Thats what I heard...ITV4 showing 6 hours each meet,  Sky have dropped it as a result of ITV's new extended coverage and Eurosport have NEVER show BSB.So if ITV have decided against showing BSB then it will be on nowhere!! 

I'm sure it will be sorted.. I thought ITV did a very good job better then the BBC.Fingers crossed.Zippo

when dose the bsb start again

hope it stays on ITV4 cos i don't have BSB or eurosport.

Thank goodness for that. BSB is just as entertaining as Moto GP, and on our doorstep! Good to see full coverage on a free channel.

Info came from the news pages of this very forum......

my info came from a BSB race team

It's not hard to do better than the BBC on this though is it?  I'm trying to remember a time when the BBC did any motorsport well?The nearest they got was F1 coverage and still some years they didn't show all the races live or in full, or qualifying with any regularity (If at all).  At the same time Eurosport covered all practice sessions and all races live.

I am confused I thought ITV signed a 3 or 4 year TV rights deal last year, I can't see eurosport having what with MotoGP and WSBK ther would be no time on a sunday to show BSB especially when the rounds coincide on the same weekends. They should of left it to Sky Sports it was perfect when you could go to a round then ride home and watch it in all its glory at night.

Eurosport is good but it does piss you off when you record something and it over runs by a hour or so.It would'nt bother me too much if it was 1 or 2 in the morning as long as it was the whole thing.

To be fair, if it's a live broadcast, and it overruns (like WSBK did this week-end), it's hardly Eurosport's fault.But that said, it pisses me off when they re-schedule (normally non-live broacasts of the racing because the tennis has overrun, and they don't say when it will be on. 

BSB was on delayed transmission on Sky last season. This was usually 3-4 hours of racing, and was broadcast around 9pm then repeated the next day.
This was a far better show than ITV put out!

where do you get your info from?
