Motors TV UK accessibility.

It seems that Motors TV has been denied to many viewers.
Since yesterday the Freeview Channel 71 has been discontinued, directing you to Ch 240 which is a data streaming channel.
Unless your box or TV is MHEG-IC enabled Ch 240 gives a message not compatible with this device, even if the device is connected to your network.
Let us hope there is some live streaming on the net from Bathurst this weekend!

Yes I made the same discovery yesterday. Nothing on Motors TV website about the issue. Thankfully still available as a TV channel on SKY 447. Just not free!

Some of us have never been able to get it for free!

Is this really a marshalling problem? Maybe a mod could move it to somewhere more appropriate.

You're right Dave, I just put it on here from habit. Feel free to move it wherever mods.

True-not a marshal but had me worried for a moment-channel 447 is the one I watch most often I think-as far as I know has come as part of the basic Sky package since it started?

I've only been able to get it on C240 for ages on the SmartTV, the only problem is that I have absolute crap internet reception where I live in the UK and the streaming often packs up.
I did subscribe to BT sport when it first started with MotoGP but cancelled when it wouldn't work.
I have just about given up complaining to BT regarding internet speed, talking to someone in India where I can just about understand every second word is doing my head in !

Even when the streaming works OK on 240, you cannot use any of the recorder functions

Try ringing during daytime. You should get someone here. It works with BT phone faults and some of the insurance companies.

I don't know what sort of speeds other people are getting but to give you an example I uploaded a one and a half hour HD wedding video to someone a while back that took nearly 3 days !
The problem is that where I live in UK in the sticks I am the last person on the end of old copper wires in our village and probably about a mile or so from the exchange.
In Spain I can watch English HD television on the laptop and upload films much faster and that is using next doors WiFi !

There's an explanation on the Motors TV website.

So you can't record Motors on channel 240 can you watch on demand? So can you scroll back through the last few days of programmes and watch whatever you want? Or is it just 'watch it when it's on or tough luck'? (how very 1980's).

Google translate did it's best to put it into English, the best I could make from the statement was that it was out of Motors TV's hands and down to the service providers. So that would be Freeview in the UK I guess.

I think that relates mainly to the French broadcasts. From what I can make out CanalSat have now included Motors TV in a sports subscription bundle, whereas previously it was free to air.

At least the French got some sort of explanation, the UK side of things have barely acknowledged the change and seemingly refuse to reply to respond to any questions on social media about it.
