First check if the confirmation e-mail was filtered as a spam? Was your e-mail address was correctly spelt? You can then contact us.
Live video was free before why do I have to pay now?
There are a couple of reasons for this.
Geoblocking: When broadcasters purchase the rights for their region this increasingly includes online rights. The majority of broadcasters will exempt subscription services and we try and include this in our negotiations.
Costs: As the popularity of the series increases so too do the costs of providing video streaming to our audience. In order to continue to bring you high quality video coverage we need to offset some of the costs involved. We have invested in improving services and still provide free coverage including audio to follow the races.
