Eurosport's have the tv rights until 2020 at least. http://www.fiawec.com/en/news/le-mans-24-hours-and...
There will also be live coverage from the main Le Mans website and probably YouTube live stream.
Amazon Prime are also making a documentary of this year Le Mans that will be shown. Probably not live

Hi. I read that Pr but when I tried to see the WEC Live (Silverstone and Spa) on Eurosport - it only had the last hour live.

I trust LM will be live throughout - I cannot find anywhere on Google that actually shows any answer to where LM24hr will be shown ie both live and highlights eg ITV4 and Quest. Do they not produce schedules that far ahead? V frustrating

Eurosport have done a cheeky thing though, you used to be able to pay for a month which was great for LeMans, now you can only buy 1 day or the whole year !

Cheeky bas...ds.

That does make it much less attractive (although I have an old monthly deal..). As well as running live coverage on the normal two channels, there will be a dedicated Eurosport Player channel that provides a live feed (no adverts / no commentary) for the entire race. In the past I've run this in combo with RLM commentary.

I have just been looking around at the above suggestions, It's put me in quite a bad mood.

On the WEC Official site you have to fk around to find the series streaming pay info. which states except Le Mans coverage, if you search Le Mans it gives various info BUT no obvious streaming pay info, why be so difficult arrogant s.

Le Mans Official site, same bullst, if they have a pay stream its not obviously denoted, if you want to sell a product why have customers scratching around trying to find you, so your'e also arrogant s.


If you cannot provide a simple lead by the nose 'idiots' guide for someone who willingly wants to pay money to legally watch, obviously your'e too full of yourselves to accept my measly few £'s, & you can SHOVE LE MANS UP YOUR ARSE.

The Eurosport player site unable to even find the day only info, specifically click for Le Mans you have to press 'purchase from £4.99' to get more info, WHY not tell me & have a purchase button at the end. When you do press the '£4.99', it's per month 1 yr. min. subscription. So SHOVE IT UP YOUR ARSE.

Also beside that button is a tennis pass for £39.99, I did not ask about fking bat 'n' ball bks Info. You are most definitely A BUNCH OF S.

Rant over because some times tutting just isn't enough.

I see what you mean about their streaming info, what a PITA to find... I used the same link to watch the 6 hours of Spa earlier in the season and the coverage was fine.

It would appear that it is 10 Euros for the coverage, but it doesn't give me any more details at the moment. I'd expect that to be the full 24 hrs without ads.

Shame Eurosport have changed their package. I've watched it with them online for years and coupled with RLM it has been perfect. I can't even find the daily subscription any more, it's either a year subscription or nothing. Anyone know what the repercussions would be if I were to sign up for a month and then cancel the direct debit after Le Mans?

Come on Eurosport, you're letting us all down.

re Eurosport player...remember the Discovery/Sky stand off? Eurosport player year subscription purchased for £20 as a just in case back up smile
and now with Roaming charges gone it means that if i'm in Belgium that w/e i can still follow whats going on

you could do the same as everyone wants to do whilst at LM, dish and cheapo sat box aimed @ Astra 1L 19 deg and pick up German eurosport /RLM commentary as free to air?

The 10euros gets you access to all the streams on the Wec site, live with Rlm commentary stream, full 24h with no commentary and no breaks stream and all the live onboard cameras to choose from for the whole race, plus the very good live timing! smile

Eurosport have 40 hours of coverage next week: http://sportscar365.com/lemans/wec/eurosport-set-f...

Annoyingly it doesn't include the "road to lemans" support race on the Saturday, anyone know if it is being shown live on a stream ?

Its just got more annoying. Last week they had two options: the 12 month one, and 24 hour pass. I was going to do the latter, and stagger two days over the 24 hours (say 9am saturday-9am sunday, 9am sunday until 9am monday).

This isnt available anymore, however the tennis package is due to finish tommorow, so maybe they will offer a choice of two then.

Eh?

Eurosport is free with sky even on the most basic package.

Not if you don't have Sky, like me and the others who think Sky is a money pit.

Anyone without Sky but with Amazon Prime, Eurosport Player channel available with a 7 day free trial..

No Prime? 30 day free trial of that too smile

Just remember to cancel once the race is over.
