    Fantastic coverage, we finally get the whole show not the watered down crap speed gave us. No commercials, good riddance speed you suck.

    I'm at work on a lazy Sunday in front of 9 screens.
    I don't have the bandwidth available after work stuff (even if I could get past the firewall.....which I can't).
    I live in the same bloody country.
    There is jack-shit on TV, it's like a heap of people are doing a moon-landing hoax for all that it's real.


    I just thought I'd lament the good old days when corporates didn't say "pay or squat".
    :deal

    I spose I could go sit on my scoot and make Ducketty vroom noises......

    Even trying to look at it on a phone would be better than trying to watch it on speed. I'm enjoying this beIN coverage so much! Sure hope it lasts a long time like this. :clap

    I agree. I have been streaming instead of watching SPEED since about 2008.

    The BEIN stream is very freeze/jerky for me. Bandwidth isn't a problem (FIOS) but my laptop might be choking on the feed. Is it smooth for y'all?

    A bit choppy for me. Was annoying at the start when the lights turned green and it froze for three seconds.

    Same for me, but I am on 3 Mbps DSL, so it is par for the course.

    I am going to switch back to the VIP link for Race 2.

    Someone in Moto GP/Moto 2 needs to recruit Sam Lowes. He looks like a young Casey Stoner coming through Southern Loop into Honda.
