They removed 'SBKTV' last week sometime. Hopefully it's just a server upgrade and they'll be put back online. It would really suck if they went like MotoGP and you had to pay for it. I think I'd have to take 'em off my Tivo and put 'em on my phone to re-watch them.

it's a contractual obligation that disallows them from presenting the race via the web. probably something to do with companies like speedtv who want everyone to tune into their ad-plagued revenue service.

well. The UK is not on the list of countries that are unable to view the race via the web. you could always get a proxy server from the UK and watch it that way, but it might be pretty slow.

just google UK proxy
