Motoamerica announces live+ streaming for 2019



MotoAmerica has announced the final piece of its most comprehensive television and digital programming package to date — six to eight hours of daily live coverage of all five classes during the 2019 MotoAmerica Series via a paywall package that opens the series to anyone with a computer and/or smart TV/phone and internet access worldwide. MotoAmerica will be partnering with ViewLift, a leading digital distribution and monetization platform, to power its digital and live-streaming experiences on web and mobile devices.

The MotoAmerica Live+ package will feature live coverage each day, including practice, qualifying and racing from every class, plus interviews, special features, etc., from all 10 rounds in the 2019 MotoAmerica Series.

Subscriptions for MotoAmerica Live+ will be available soon for a pre-sale price of $49.95. After the initial pre-sale period, a season pass will be available for $69.95. A six-month subscription (April through September) will also be available for $13.25 a month and single-event (weekend) packages will be available for $9.95. More details will follow in the coming weeks.

“We’ve been hearing from our fans for a while now that they want a subscription-based service where they can watch our races on their computers or other devices. And now they can,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey. “This will allow our fans all over the world to watch all of our action live. This is going to make a lot of people happy and we’re pleased to be able to offer a service like this to our fans. It’s a real game-changer for MotoAmerica, its sponsors, teams, riders and fans.”

“We are happy to support MotoAmerica in their growth objectives by providing them the platforms, tools, and analytics to grow their audience and optimize their strategies,” says Manik Bambha, ViewLift’s President.

Former MotoGP analyst Dylan Gray will host the action and features on Live+.

“I am very excited to be joining the MotoAmerica Series for what looks to be a great season both on and off the track,” said Gray. “Brilliant racing coupled with big personalities make this one of the best racing series in the world, and I cannot wait to get to know the paddock and work alongside a few familiar faces from the past. I look forward to being part of an exciting new TV and digital package that will hopefully make fans feel 100 percent immersed in the action and encourage them to watch the stars of today and tomorrow… and, of course, go riding themselves.”

Good point, it mentions "live" about a hundred times but no mention of VOD. Live only would kill this thing before it even starts.

49.95$ pre-season discount ends this weekend.

Don't forget to sign up! MotoAmericaLivePlus+

Either way, 69.99$ will be worth every penny.

Just subscribed. Should be an epic season! It kinda has me thinking though, if we all have the Motoamerica season pass, is anyone going to tune in to FS2 or NBC sports? I would think that would hurt future mainstream TV coverage if there are poor ratings. I mean it's great if they sell alot of these passes, but I think it would be even better for the sport if your average weekend rider can flip through the channels and watch some racing. Maybe they get hyped enough to look into some track days/racing for themselves.
I do love that the Motoamerica entries are up already though, that is a great sign of things to come!

I think the opposite is true. The only reason I don't watch BSB is because they don't have online streaming available. Unlike other sports, our sport is seldom passively found. Either way I hope people stumble on to it on Fox Sports 2

There is mainstream TV coverage ? I cancelled my satellite subscription almost 15 years ago because motorcyle racing was barely ever on, and when it was they were showing it at shitty hours and I just had to record it anyway.

WSBK and MotoGP video pass are the best things that ever happened to me as a moto racing fan and they only way I know how to even watch the races in my area. Though there is probably some $250 a month satellite option, but no way I am paying that for the one channel I would actually watch.

I guess by mainstream I mean the coverage that will be shown on FS2 and NBC sports. That is a huge step in the right direction, but if you have the Motoamerica season pass, are you even going to tune in to those channels? I thought that could lead to lower ratings on those channels in particular. I think overall there will be more viewers than ever with the addition of the exclusive season pass, but will FS2 renew if their ratings are weak?
At least sports bars can turn on FS2, the local Buffalo Wild Wings can't even get beIN sports themselves!

FS2 will have the races... possible live... That is good for the general public and most advertisers.

But for the hard core...the MA season pass you'll get so much more... interviews, practice, qualifying.. etc.

It's a little bit for everybody.
