Fans of MotoGP will have to fork out for the BT Sport channel, if they haven't already, in order to watch Moto GP coverage in 2014, it has been confirmed.

This decision brings to an end nearly a decade of watching the premier motorcycle racing series on the BBC free of charge.

At a presentation in London's Olympic Park today (9 May), it was revealed that BT have secured a five-year deal from 2014 which means they will broadcast all MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 coverage starting next season.

In addition to full race coverage, it will also operate a 'second screen' function, giving viewers the chance to watch races from riders' on-board cameras.

BT also plans to show every session live via its new BT Sport App, and BT Sport is available for free to all BT Broadband users.

Other satellite customers will have to pay £12 per month extra, but for that money you will get live Premier League Football and English Premiership Rugby as well.

The BBC commented saying: "We are very proud of our Moto GP coverage and submitted a competitive bid to retain the broadcasting rights beyond our current contract."

This bid was unsuccessful as BT secured the rights for MotoGP coverage just as they did last summer for the broadcast of 38 Premier League football matches per season from 2013-14 to 2015-16, as well as the English Premiership Rugby.

What do you think of this development? Will you be paying the extra £12 a month to watch Lorenzo, Crutchlow and Co? Share your thoughts in our community forum.
