Rogers & Bell Drop Speed Channel
 
So, no more Moto GP. Of course the rest of the "red neck" "mullet head" and miller lite crowd will whimper. I hope somebody up here runs Moto GP and WSB, even on tape delay.

Too bad for the city squids...where else will they learn all them moves???:lol3

Totally unnecessary in traffic at the speed limit but then may as well show off, as seen on TV.:wink:

Country squids??? How about Shaw direct or Bell or Telus???:ear

Well, I'm a committed Telus guy [west coast company] and the dividends I get from shares pays for my service. Just the same, it would really be nice to find a station that runs WSB and Moto GP. Wishfull thinking I know, in this anti vehicle granola munching country.

Cool....investing in Telus probably helps pay for the rather high wages my bro gets working there. He may have something to do with your network security.

Telus....a heck of a big cel tower just went up here. I may have to switch carrier if just to get coverage on HWY 6, I keep finding dead on the road squid bikes. 4 in 3 years....not good.I may not be so lucky next time and be the first one there....:eek1

here in the States, Speed Channel was discontinued everywhere in the fall. The new branding is "FS1" short for Fox Sports 1. Fuel is being rebranded FS2

You may check Velocity (A Discovery network). I have seen on occasion Motorcycle racing but I think it is British Superbike. Have been otherwise occupied (to be read as sleeping) when it was on so I never have tuned in to see. 6 AM Sunday mornings...

At least there are places to download the torrents, it's the only way I was able to see WSBK & WSS last year. I guess I'll just have to watch MotoGP that way this year.

Just subscribe to the MotoGP (99euro)and or WSBK (70euro) streaming service.
Full races live or Ondemand.

Not a surprise. I watch SX, and all the ads are for their other shows, with maybe one customer ad. Not selling their air time at all. Weakass faster than a redneck programming, crappy management leading to no sales...yeah, it was coming.

Bummer. Gonna have to find streams for sx.

Different TV carriage rules here... we (also) don't have Velocity available to us on Canadian cable or satellite.

For what it's worth, our Discovery Channel is "Discovery Channel Canada", which is like "Discovery Channel" (US) but with Canadian ownership, more Canadian content and a different lineup of the US shows.

I suspect the reason we don't have Fox Sports 1 is that it's not on the CRTC approved list. Speed was on the approved list, but that would change when Fox took over ownership. We could hope that TSN or Sportsnet picks up some of the programming that FS1 shows, but there's no guarantee of that.

Really I don't see a big loss as Speed has been in a fast downward spiral
about the time they changed from "Speedvision" to speed channel

nothing worth watching left other than Moto Gp

I miss the lost Drive in movies

couldn't care who is faster than a red neck

I gave up speed channel a year ago because Bell wouldn't cover Speed HD
haven't missed it at all.

TV cable and satelite is a dieing thing - remember the song 57 channels & nothing on ?

in the future only the lower class will bother with cable - it's like that now actually
A report I read had something like 70% downloading stuff & using "OnDemand" TV

Weldit 03-04-2014 05:38 PM

If you are looking for something to fill the void after Speed has been flushed down
take a look at motor trend U-tube channel Motor Trend Channel - YouTube

I was laughing my ass off while watching the "Roadkill" shows

These guys have to much fun ! Rat Rod Jeep Death-Wish Trip! - Roadkill Episode 15

:lol3

Agreed. The minute Fox bought in, the game was over.
