It is possible to get Motors TV on a laptop and even record it as I actually did it tonight, however it was an awful lot of aggro and you have to make sure you don't download a load of other crap that is also on these third party streaming sites !
I only did it to see if I could but I wouldn't recommend it

It appears that Motors has dropped of Sky, no reason has been given yet. However you can manually tune the channel.

You can manually tune the channel on a Sky box?

Could Motors TV be in financial trouble, not paying the bills being the cause of all this distruption? Pure speculation, no evidence on my part though.

A shame. Although I have drifted from that mainly due to it not being HD.

Just saw this on Twitter.

SkyHelpTeam @SkyHelpTeam
@dj_heavy_g I've had word back from the relevant team and been advised this is a decision made by Motors TV not to show on our platform anymore. For more information I refer you to speak with them directly. Cheers again, Amanda

sadly we never got Motors TV on ch71 down south...never was able to find out why, shame its gone.

So if channel 447 has gone from SKY, but the channel is still Broadcasting, can it now be picked up by a FTA Satellite receiver?

Don`t suppose the there is any hope that a Freesat Receiver will pick it up? Or that it will make its way to Freesat?

The Freeview by Internet on ch240, does anybody know if there is a Freeview HD box that will pick it up ch240 with a scart output socket. I know SCART is being wiped out by manufacturers, but I still need it to connect to my TV

SWCRacing has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
The tweet from the Sky "help" team kind of goes against statement from the MotorsTV executive which basically says its the broadcasters decision

Angry phone call to Sky coming up....

I got Motors on channel 71 no problem and I'm in Kent. Obviously it's gone now - I can get it on channel 240 but that's streaming only with no way of recording it. All a bit rubbish. I suspect with the loss of channel 71 and now Sky as well they've lost themselves 99% of their audience.

Just for the record, it's still available on Virgin cable - or was last night, as I watched the entirety of last year's Austrian GP2 race (because I could!).

I have been following this story on different forums and on Facebook since it happen yesterday no one seems to be able to work out what is going on.

I have even seen one comment on Facebook from someone saying that "Called Sky about this last night was told it was a technical problem which would take 24 hrs to resolve."

It's just really really sad and there are lots of championships out there whey they have sold the championship to everyone (competitors and Sponsors) on the back of there TV package and now that is gone.

Weird situation. I recorded on Sky 447 yesterday morning, what I recorded was there last night but the channel is now missing from Sky Sport.
Yet another reason I'm waiting for BT to actually earn the exhorbitant money they charge by getting Infinity into Leicestershire.
