    WRC does that nowadays. The quality is bad to mediocre in WRC+, but it's not that Eurosport Player is/was excellent either. It's not the lack of amount of production why no/few TV channel shows all of it. It's just easier to sell regular time TdF stages into a middle of the replay season or an hour or two of smaller race, instead of 15 hours of program for 2,5 days with irregular gaps between show times, meaning that it pretty much occupies a channel for full 2,5 days.

    Like rallyfiend said they use same type of tech.

    They could get better signal and action in WRC if they put MotoGP-rider+cameraman riding infront of ever car.


    On a serious note, it's all about the budget. I'm sure the production could be better if there was £1 billion TV contracts like in F1.

    The main thing I and some others want is a pure sound audio option. Is that technically difficult and costly ?

    Now that they already have option for commentary languages it can't be hard to add one more audio option.

    I do think there's a reason they use 150.000€ kits in each car for camera's and satellite signal through the repeater plane and not a smartphone
    Why are you all trying to invent all those stupid reason for their failure?

    The cameras are there, the transmittors are there, the helis/planes are there. Everything they need is already being used.
    If they can switch cameras in the studio they get different feeds into that studio. So they can also send those feeds back out so people can watch them instead of stupid interviews.

    Of course you will not be able to follow everyone all the time, but the helicam, the stationary camera's and at least 2 to 3 onboard cameras should be available at all time. There is no technical or financial reason why i should watch the start instead of an onboard.

    Eurosport could do it 10 years ago, and that was before the time of smartphones, 4g or even drones.

    I tell you what. Why don't you choose a rally local to you, put all this in place, and send us all a link to watch it?

    Hell, pick even just one stage.

    At any one time there are already several feeds to the studio (wherever that is) and the question is why canít they make this available to the subscribers.
    Of course we know what the answer is, the promoter canít cope with the current demand on their service and to enrich the service will inevitably cost money, which obviously they consider unnecessary. My impression is they try to get away with the minimum possible expenditure and only add value to the service when, for whatever reason, they think they have no other choice or must be seen to be doing something.

    Why do you keep on talking about mobile phones or 4g when they don't help at all? Also, if working cameras keep on changing, would the viewer need also constantly switch between them?
