I suspect its money related.
For one, the adverts seem a lot more often recently plus free streaming like what was done for the Daytona 24 is more attractive than all those ads.

I haven't posted in here for a while, but Motors going off air is a bit of a blow. I know some of the coverage isn't the best but for a motor sport addict it gives me the chance to see a lot off stuff from overseas and at a club level that I wouldn't have other wise watched.

Hopefully, it will get resolved quickly or if they have gone under someone/something will step in. If not I am sure certain stuff will migrate elsewhere but not all. I'll be gutted if I can't watch the V8 Supercars, Irish Tarmac Rallying or some of the Live Action Day re runs anymore.

Lets be honest, if it has gone it is not really a bad thing.

I stopped watching it years ago, as a lot of the stuff on there was total and utter garbage from anyone willing to pay for tv coverage.

It is a shame some sports have lost an outlet, but no big loss really

It's a huge loss if you're a sportscar fan, Motors show the WEC, ELMS, USCC, AsLMS, Blancpain and British GT, other than Eurosport showing Le Mans that's all stuff no other channel covers, the same goes for just about all other Motors programming, if you're not able to get it on Motors you won't be able to get it elsewhere

Seems it is Motors TV's decision.

ELMS and Blancpain were both on BT Sport. British GT is on Channel 4. All but British GT have official streams either on the web or through apps.

How to get motors tv back on your skybox

Hi there, I've found this info from alink which explains how to get motors tv back.

It's a little bit tekkie, but if l can do it & get it working, anyone can !

Motors TV continues off the Sky EPG on satellite, currently with encryption stopping non-Sky users from access (11082 H, Symbol Rate 22000, FEC 5/6). This setup is unlikely to continue for long without inclusion on the Sky EPG

You need to go into the options menuu, then the add channels tab, then put the abovesettings in then push the yellow button to find the channel.

To watch it again, you need to go back into the other channels tab & then select motors tv ; you cannot add motors tv to your favourites list, unfortunately.

Maybe the situation will be improved soon.

Happy watching !!!
Martin

But you can't record. I'm gutted, especially with the V8s coming up next week and I'm not paying bt 20 a month for the privilege. Seriously thinking of getting v8 superview to stream to my TV.

I lost Motors from Freeview 71. Neither my TV or Humax PVR are compatible for the streaming service. I was thinking about upgrading the PVR to a compatible model just to get channel 240.
I think now I will wait, I have suspicions that Motors TV have more problems than they are admitting, don't be surprised if they stop broadcasting altogether.
Maybe it is time for someone else to step in and, with some fresh ideas, gather all the best of motorsport television in one place. Then they may attract some new advertisers to enable it to stay on the free to view platforms.
