Bt Sport Coverage

That's indoor on ice ..I was thinking outdoor on snow.. Obviously it would have to be abroad where there is snow. 

I've seen riders practice in the snow..so it must be possible

I saw video many years ago of them racing regular speedway bikes around a speedway track whilst it was covered in snow...I think it was from Ukraine but could have been Russia.

They do indeed play with sandpaper bats and use an orange ball.there is also a white ball that they can use once that scores double points that can be used at anytime. . They got the idea watching speedway

Yes they use these bats instead of the traditional rubber bats....

It's a Matchroom event created and promoted by them...Barry Hearn knows how to promote and get events on TV...what would speedway do for a figure like that..

Speedway wouldn't do anything for a figure like that..there is too much self interest...hence the state it's in now.  

They should have let John Berry run it whilst he was alive.

I had a call tonight from BT asking if I wanted to renew my BT Sport contract (on my Sky box) for the next 12 months. Because I have a BT phone line, and BT Broadband I had  a special deal last year, with 6 months free before I was billed. I explained to the rep, I had only taken BT Sport last year because of their coverage of Speedway, and at this moment in time, I had not heard if BT were covering it again in 2018, and therefore didn't want to commit, if they were not going to screen Speedway in 2018. The rep said he would go and speak to his Manager. A couple of minutes later he came back, and told me the BT Sport contract covered Speedway until the 7th February 2019. I still have until 27th of February to make up my mind, and get a further discount, but haven't heard anything officially via the BSPA web site, so I'm going to hold on for now, just in case it was a sales ploy to get me to renew!

Any thoughts on this guys? Has anybody else had a similar call from BT?

They are covering Speedway (the GP's) maybe that is the contract they were referring to?

One clear confirmation of the continued BT deal is clubs have the BT sport logo on race suits and team wear. For example when Poole posted picture of Sundstrum wearing a 2018 Pirates replica race shirt which is big BT Logo on it and having seen the Leicester ones again featuring BT sport.

 

its just a case of they go public with the deal I have a feeling it will be around start of February

DON'T understand the silence but all the signs are that BT will cover the PL in 2018 ....

for me - a highlights package would be best - 3 matches a week

and keep schtum about riders riding for 2 teams! Oh and riders appearing for their rivals.

I have heard the same as Phillip Rising that BT will be covering The Premiership Live in 2018. 

Last I heard was that tenders for OB work had been done so not sure what the hold up is
