BT Sport adding HD cost for free subsciptions

Hi Folks Just a quick note for anyone with BT as a broadband customer getting BT sport for free. I have just spotted on my last bill that there suddenly is an extra £3/month charge for BT Sport HD.

Re: BSB 2013 (spoilers)

Amid all the controversy in other areas, a huge congratulations to Alex Lowes for winning the BSB championship this year. A change of work has meant I have not managed to catch any recent races in person or on TV, but it sounds like the last race of the year was an absolute cracker and really did go...

Re: MotoGP Silverstone 2013 *** spoilers

For me as said above, Silverstone is not really a bike viewing circuit. Went first year of Moto GP and without a grandstand ticket and/or access to a big screen you will struggle to know what is going on as the place is vast. It very much is watch some bikes go by, wait 2 minutes and see them again ...

North One TV have also agreed a deal with Discovery but on a time delayed basis, so keep an eye out for this for other regions. "With the demise of o...

Glad you liked the images, more to follow from Oulton of course. Weather seems fair, but not too much sun, so hopefully a good weekend for all. The good news so far is that everyone seems on the pace so should be an interesting one as always! I hear that Keith Farmers bike was rebuilt in record time...
