WSVN Miami area SUCKS, Moto GP @ 11:30 pm Again.

It's that time again, MotoGP live on fox for most but here in the Miami/ South Florida area, WSVN Fox takes it upon themselves to save everyone from the evils of motorcycle racing by showing it late, not live.

Again they show paid programming instead of the race.
Once it was news instead of the race, last time it was paid programming again.

The best I can imagine is that they think that showing the race will encourage stunters.

Of course they show NASCAR though.

They must be required by FOX to play the race at some point that day for the advertising agreements or I don't think they would even play it at night.

11:30pm - we played it before midnight.

Kind of like how stations show all the required public service announcements in the middle of the night where they can't sell ad space.


I absolutly hate WSVN, and I guess they hate us.

/Rant

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

yea, i got the package without speed too, but didnt realize till it was to late. i called and threw a massive fit on the phone(ill cancel, i hate you, i want my mommy, so on and so on), they ended up giving it to me for no extra cost.

that was a close call

They will probably show it, unless the have screwed you before.

This particular affiliate has been delaying it since it returned to the U.S.

It's like their own little to the sportbikers.
