MotoAmerica is fully aware of the difficulties fans are facing with local cable and/or satellite providers not currently offering beIN SPORTS due to the broadcast company’s ongoing negotiations with its distributors. However, there are options available for fans to continue to watch the series live.
“We understand our fans’ frustrations,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “We know that beIN is diligently working on getting the issues resolved and progress has been made. In the meantime, there are ways around the issue, so we can all continue to watch MotoAmerica, MotoGP and World Superbike. We have been assured that this matter is being resolved as quickly as possible.”
To instruct fans on how to access the races, Roadracing World’s David Swarts wrote a story that has been updated on their website at www.roadracingworld.com that outlines viewing options for MotoAmerica fans. Additionally, all the rounds are also available on beIN SPORTS’ YouTube channel as quickly as the Monday following the event.

Despite the temporary issues, the encouraging news is that interest and viewership of the 2018 MotoAmerica Series has risen dramatically, and the domestic series is currently ahead of World Superbike and is approaching MotoGP numbers. Total viewership (television and digital) for the 2018 season is up 50 percent, year over year.
