Eurospory World Superbikes

Hello, it's my first post and looking for any information to why the World Superbikes on Euro sport showing live this Sunday has been moved to Amazon Prime. I pay for a full XL TV package from Virgin and suddenly find I can only watch the highlights of the Sunday rounds. The Saturday is as normal? I feel a little ripped off as the racing is one of the reasons I pay for Virgin.

Any answers would be appreciated.

Hello

That would have been down to the broadcaster if they have sold the rights to Amazon then it will transfer over there is nothing that Virginmedia can do to resolve that.

Re: Eurospory World Superbikes

I'm a bit late to this one, but according to these two links (World SBK1 & World SBK2 ) Eurosport still have the UK rights to World Superbike.

Hi @Ron49

 

Welcome to our Community Help Forum 🙂

 

Thank you for making your first post regarding the World Superbike. Eurosport do still have the UK rights to show this - were you able to watch it on Sunday?

 

Please do let me know,

 

Thanks,

 

Serena

Re: Eurospory World Superbikes

Sky viewers said the same - Eurosport decided not to put it on their two main channels. Nothing to do with Sky or VirginMedia.

Re: Eurospory World Superbikes

Ahh, okay. Thanks for the clarification @ozsat

 

Sounds like an issue which needs to be taken up with Eurosport: https://help.eurosport.com/hc/en-gb

 

Best wishes,

Re: Eurospory World Superbikes

I think Eurosport actually being a French channel decided the French Open Tennis was the main event at that time slot.

It was available to subscribers to Eurosport direct via their website or apps.

Re: Eurospory World Superbikes

The likely reason Eurosport do not show live WSBK in the UK on some occasions is because there's either a cycling or tennis event on. All the years I've followed WSBK, this happens at some point every season.

Re: Eurospory World Superbikes

More unusual Eurosport WSBK coverage this weekend. Recorded both live broadcasts and yesterday the live coverage didn't show Race 1 and I've just started watching today's coverage and it didn't capture the Sprint Race. At least they showed Race 2 live.
