Revised version of article:

The 2013 World Superbike Championship may make its live U.S. television debut on beIN SPORT television on Saturday night, while being simultaneously streamed live online.

BeIN Sport, which has the U.S. broadcast rights to World Superbike, may show the first race live in the U.S.on Saturday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. EST. (Phillip Island is 16 hours ahead of EST.) Though the beIN SPORT website doesn't list World Superbike on its schedule, a spokesperson originally confirmed the time slot. However, in a follow-up e-mail, the spokesperson wrote that a decision hadn't been made on whether it would be televised.

"Superbike is only confirmed to be available streaming live online through the beIN SPORT website," the spokesperson wrote, adding that a decision on televising it would be made Wednesday, Feb. 20.
