MotorTrend app ends direct streaming service outside the U.S. & Canada, alternative options under evaluation

MotorTrend is a popular media platform for everything automobile. There are magazines, video on demand, and broadcasting services where subscribers can get the latest updates from the automobile industry.

Also, there is the MotorTrend app which is available on platforms like Android and iOS. It offers direct streaming service for content related to numerous car shows, original series, live events, and much more.


The direct streaming service was initially available in several regions outside the US and Canada via the said MotorTrend app.

However, it seems those who use the said app outside the aforementioned regions are unable to avail the direct streaming service anymore.

This is inconveniencing those who are subscribed to the direct streaming service on the MotorTrend app.


It appears that support for the said service has been ended by MotorTrend outside the United States and Canada.

This info comes from a response by MotorTrend Group LLC to an affected user’s Google Play Store review comment.

It has been explicitly mentioned that the direct streaming service outside the said regions has ended due to new requirements.


The good news is that the service provider is currently evaluating alternatives for the direct streaming service.

Not much clarity has been provided by MotorTrend Group LLC on the matter in the official statement.

So, it is unclear how long it will take for the direct streaming service alternatives to come into effect.


Hopefully, the service provider evaluates and provides a proper solution to affected subscribers outside the US and Canada.

That said, we will report back with more details as and when we get new information to share so stay tuned.
