No senior MotoGP this weekend on SpeedTV?

This weekend its the MotoGP in Spain. I had a look on Speed to set my DVR....they are only showing the 250? Wazzup? Look further out for a replay....nothing until the next Superbike races. Is this just more SpeedTV BS or do I have something wrong?

Angry

I'm hoping DISH just has their programming schedule screwed up. Same thing here, just the 250s. And I looked at Tuesday, and they're just showing reruns of the AMA race. What's up with that?

I just checked...neither AMA or World Superbike has a race scheduled for this Sunday. I'm thinking the programming is wrong.

It looks like it's being shown on CBS affiliates. I saw the same thing the other day and poked around my Season Pass and found it listed there, but it didn't record it by default since it wasn't on SpeedTV. I'm not sure why that's the case; kind of a double edged sword. Bad news - they screw up our recording options and we might miss the race. Good news - if major network affiliates are running motorcycle racing that could be a very good thing for the sport. In the end I don't care, as long as I get to see the Go-Fast boys do their stuff!

it's going to be on CBS, try to get anybody with a ratings box to watch. it will help determine wether or not they carry more.

I'm on the Neilson Tivo tracking list, just made a season pass for it! Of course, I do kinda prefer the international announcers over the usual homegrown batch. When Speed cover the Laguna Seca round it's really lame; the always pronounce names incorrectly, mix up who's riding what bike, etc. Hopefully CBS has some talking monkey heads that actually understand the series and the players.

I especially like hearing the international announcers pronounce "Yammer How"

It was on the regular broadcast CBS affilate here. Kevin Schwantz and some unknown hack doing the commentary. My favorite line of his that made me want to kill -

"MotoGP is the NASCAR of motorcycling!"

Which Kevin cleared up a minute later as being the F1 of motorcycling. He also corrected about 1/2 dozen other mistakes the guy made. At least CBS has a WAY cleaner feed than SpeedTV usually does. Still I miss the hyperactive international commentators we usually get; they are much more fun and exciting to listen to.
