Definitely worth the price of admission. You get to see FP1, FP2, QP, WUP and the race (all 3 classes) without commercials and can go back and replay them at any time during your subscription period.

At first I thought it was a bit pricey, but I'm hooked.

The Gyro Cam on Rossi's bike is fantastic!
It really shows the extreme lean angles :woot: much more than the conventional Arse-Cam.

Watched the race, very boring IMO. The only passing seemed to be when the front rider made a mistake. Something just seemed off this year, I can't put my finger on it.

Speed's coverage was abysmal as usual. I can drive wife nuts using "Shaheen-speak" where the words are normal, but let my voice rise and fall as only he can do.

Greg White had a few laughable quotes as usual, is there a bigger douchebag on TV? Probably not. My favorite was when he was discussing Pedrosa's competitiveness. HE PUT ON HIS RACE FACE. ****ing shoot me, that guy is awful.

When Dani crashed I expected some comment straight out of The Winner Takes It All like "from hero to zero just that fast..."

Speeds camera shots around the corkscrew SUCKED..
the zoom in tight the zoom out quickly was pissing me off!! the Tech drector should have his arse kicked, and the production producer should take a beating too! Every first year camera op is told never do that. Thank God for Leigh Diffy..Shehen sux..

Thats LIVE speed coverage for you from a bunch of NASCRAP people... That was probably the most important sequence of events to us, USA fans. Then when Colin passed both Simoncelli and Melandri, no replay..
Oh AND.....ROYAL PURPLE Preshow???????? WTF?:banghead

I know that many moto fans have called and written to SPEED complaining about their racing coverage year after year , to no avail . The company doesn't care .

I can remember as a kid watching the races on Wide world of sports, always great coverage, and terrific camera shots, makes you wonder what happened sometimes...

And whatever happened to the post race interviews? I would take that over the damn Royal Purple jackass bullshit :banghead I would rather hear from the rider about his thoughts on the race than some dumbass comment about the track sitting in his chair. :mad:
