How do I access Motortrend TV?

I joined the Hagerty Drivers Club partly because of the advertised 1 year access to Motortrend TV. Now that I am a member of the Drivers Club, there is no apparent way to access Motortrend TV. Can anyone provide some advise on how to access it?

The email link arrived yesterday - more than 24 hrs after joining. I hope that the delay I experienced does not affect others that are thinking they can join and access The 24 Hours of LeMans right away.

I am also a Hagerty Club member and cannot connect with Motortrend.  I am not very pleased about it.  Can you help?

I don't recall getting the email from the drivers club for the motor trend subscription. Can it be resent

well you probably want to see le mans and so you're in a bit of a panic. but other than that it 'aint' so good to tell you the the truth. unless you're into watching shops doing an infinite number of LS swaps and the like its pretty damn dull.  redundant defines that channel. i rarely even look to see what's on it anymore. it's not like the good ol days when the speed channel would show...formula ford or touring car from germany. you're not missing much to tell you the truth.

You nailed it. I joined to get full access the 24 hrs of LeMans this weekend. I agree there's not much to watch on MotorTrend TV. The only bright spots for me are the race coverage (I wish they did more too), Chasing Classic Cars, Top Gear, and a couple other programs.

yea, and there's plenty out there that they could. love top gear (the original) which  i watched on bbc america. believe or not the cbs sports network shows some really good racing.  but hey you'll get to see le mans so look on the bright side right?...

(ps) back to what i was saying. roadkill - we pulled a car out of a junkyard drove it 1000 miles, it overheated 3 times so we bolted a 6-71 blower on it and then did a burnout competition and it blew up! aren't we wacky crazy isn't that funny! ...no...fantom works- i gave a guy an estimate of thirty-five thousand to restore his car but when we put it up on the lift! .....really you gave a guy an estimate on his car and you didn't put it on the lift first? that you have...right there...that's all staged bulls**t. just so they could show ( dan ? ) marching around cursing. reality tv, the automotive version of ' jerry springer' . the upside is it's cheap to make, the downside -' do you think we're that stupid?'

I still have my motor trend account and can log in but it wants me to sign up for a pay account. How does this work?

@bradleydad Sorry for my delay in getting back to you. The Motor Trend subscription was for one year only. Unfortunately, after that Motor Trend will ask you to pay. Has one year passed or is something else going on? Please advise.

Same as above.  Account suddenly asking to sign up for paid account.  Did something change?

@Nolan thank you for your note. The Motor Trend subscription was for one year only. Unfortunately, after that Motor Trend will ask you to pay. Has one year passed or is something else going on? Please advise.

Apparently a misunderstanding on my part. I thought it was one year, renewable every year that we renewed with Hagerty.

Thank you.

Yes that's correct. Sorry for the confusion on this, Nolan.

I just joined Hagerty. When will the email come in to get MotorTrend TV for free?? Is it in an email?

So do we get another year of MotorTrendTV if we renew our DriversClub subscription?  If so, I did not receive an email with a link for this year.  Can you help?

Hello @daveox , our partnership with MotorTrend is only for the first year of Hagerty Drivers Club membership. If you would like to continue the subscription to MotorTrend, you will have to purchase it separately through MotorTrend and not Hagerty.
