MotoGP moves from FoxSports to BeIN SPORTS in 2016.

It’s official – MotoGP moves from Fox Sports to join World Superbike on BeIN SPORTS in the U.S. and Canada. This makes BeIN SPORTS the new home of road racing in America as MotoAmerica, the U.S. National Superbike championship, joins the World Championships to bring all three series back to one network.

The move to BeIN SPORTS also marks the first time MotoGP will be aired in Spanish in the U.S., on the Network’s beIN SPORTS en Espańol.

"The agreement reached between Dorna and BeIN in the U.S. and Canada is important for the success and development of motorcycle racing in North America” added Manel Arroyo, Managing Director, TV & Media Area, Dorna Sports. “BeIN will become the home of the top road racing series, as on top of MotoGP and WorldSBK they will start airing MotoAmerica this season. It’s great news for the fans in the U.S. and Canada to have the coverage they deserve. We also know that BeIN is going to offer viewers unparalleled comprehensive broadcasting with studio presentations and onsite presence at the U.S. rounds of both World Series. In addition, we are thrilled to have MotoGP aired in Spanish in U.S. for the first time, expanding the reach of the sport to its maximum".

In addition to race coverage, the official release from Dorna Sports said that the network will also feature original news, editorial analysis and multimedia elements throughout the MotoGP season, with insight from the network’s top sports journalists. The network also offers online streaming access in HD with beIN SPORTS CONNECT, allowing access on the go.

"We are thrilled to have acquired the exclusive US broadcast rights to the FIM MotoGP World Championship, where the best racers line up on the most renowned tracks around the world; this is truly the pinnacle of motorcycle racing and beIN SPORTS is happy to be able to deliver this to our viewers in the U.S.," said Yousef Al-Obaidly, Managing Director of beIN SPORTS. "Sports fans demand the best of the best, and with the acquisition of the MotoGP World Championship and our renewal of World Superbike, we continue to provide exactly that."

I watch some stuff on beIN and it's not bad.
I will still keep my MotoGP subscription anyway..

I guess the move might have something to do with Dorna owning WSB if I remember that correctly..

Either way, it will be two wheel action on one channel!

Maybe WSB will make it's way to COTA in the future since Miller is closed for business..
Keepin' it Green...
