    Agree with this. All Live+ should be a premium product/ service. The there should be a better FTA product for those who can't/won't/not interested enough to pay. It's not hard. At the moment, RedBullTV provide 1 free live stage on a Saturday - that's not good enough. Lots of competing series have free live streaming for the whole event/ season. Why not 1 or 2 free live stages per day; like the old IRC coverage?

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    You can't sell something to a broadcaster while also giving it away for free online...

    Many of the series you say probably can't find a broadcaster for it (World RX, WEC etc).

    Not that I know of, but S.American fans have complained in nunbers and got commentary in Spanish from 2019.

    Everyone needs to give feedback to get them to make changes the fans want.

    They don't listen - same stock response to emails if you even get a reply.

    Their coverage of the power stage was an absolute joke in Monte.

    Pre recorded pointless interviews from the top drivers before they show them blasting off into the stage, then cutting to the last 30seconds of another crews run to the finish and then spend 2-3minutes watching a car trickle down to the stop line, driver taking his helmet off, followed by an interview where Molly probably asks stupid questions.

    Then rinse and repeat, back to the start of the stage where they cut to another pointless pre recorded interview.

    All that can easily be put in a small screen while we follow a full screen of the action on-going - like focusing on Neuville and Ogier for most of the full stage while there's 0.4s separating them.

    Heads need to roll if they can't sort that out. I even had a mate watching it with me who enjoys motorsport but isn't a fanatic or big on the WRC, and even he made a comment like "they don't show much of the action, its just interviews". Reddit has been full of complaints and many people on here have criticised them for stuff like this before, they should be aware of complaints & suggested improvements made by comments from fans on social media/ online forums etc. Most companies do.

    The starting intervals were even increased on the power stage to allow more material to be shown. I agree that the pre-recorded interviews and standing starts are really pointless. But it just seems they're trying to market it to the non-hardcore-fan audience, average sporting tv viewers.

    You should market to your target audience, not to secondary audience. After all, it's only the fans who tune in to the broadcasts as loyal viewers.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    Agree to that. Potential for improvements is a fact.

    The Power Stage for-TV coverage isnt the same as the typical WRC+ All Live normal online stage coverage.

    or they could just stream all different camera's and let the viewer pick which one he wants to see.
    want to see the normal broadcast? watch channel 1. want to see the camera and the interviews at the finish? watch channel 2. want to see the pre recorded interviews? select which one you want to see on channel 3. want to see ogier onboard? watch channel 4. neuville onboard? watch 5. want to see stationary camera's? 6. and so on.

    it costs them nothing more, and it would make the experience hugely better.
