    Yes PLEASE some quality channels. I want F1 and MotoGP in HD like the brits get. And I want FX hd so I can watch the best Cop show ever "The Shield" in HD (well maybe Homicide is a close second)

    Adding SpeedHD for the average three people that watch this channel at any one time a complete waste of bandwidth. Let's save the bandwith for a channel that means something.

    Is it a drug channel? I don't think I ever tuned to it the 6 years I was with TWC.

    Well for those that have nothing better to do than post about a channel that you have never watched I have a suggestion for you. Switch. You obviously have too many channels now. For those of us that enjoy racing its important. You go watch Green.

    Actually, NASCAR TV ratings are up again this year - and increasing in major metropolitan areas outside traditional (i.e. Southern) markets.

    But don't let the facts stand in the way of your irrational rant... :lol:

    NASCAR on FOX? NASCAR on ABC? NASCAR on TNT? NASCAR on ESPN/ESPN2?

    Seems like there are plenty of places to watch NASCAR in HD. :D


    When quoting those ratings, make sure you separate the MANY networks where NASCAR is already available in HD via DISH from the ONE where HD is not yet available on DISH. Is the NASCAR on SpeedHD the type that is top of the ratings or something much less popular?

    Depending on what part of the season, well depend on what channel you will see the RACE on. Speed on the other hand is more than just NASCAR, as matter of a fact there are only 3 weekly shows about NASCAR on SpeedTV, the rest of the time is spent on different types of Racing and different style of shows that have NOTHING to do with NASCAR. I would like to have Speed, FX, Spike and some others are more important though.

    Redline is trying to sell SpeedHD on NASCAR ratings ... that's why I ask.

    I see that, and where they have some Nascar shows, must of Speed has Nothing to do with Nascar. Speed is a Vary diverse Channel featuring Races and Features on just about Everything that has a Motor in it. I love Rally Racing, and Speed is really the only place to find it. I do enjoy my NASCAR too, go 17,16,99,6(even without Mark) jury out on the 26 though.:grin:

    I'll like the 14 and 4 next year ... Go Hoosiers! :)
    Nationwide 88, 60 - Cup 99 ... 24, 48, 88 disappointing.
    88 seems to be doing better as an owner than a driver. :)

    I know off subject, but....
    you mean go 14 and 39. Newman will drive the 39 instead of the 4.
    NOTHING wrong with either driver on that team, I enjoy watching them now.
    Smoke has always had the Driver attitude, and Newman is mentored by one of my all time favorite Drivers in Buddy Baker. Penske has ISSUES. They have been some great coverage on the on ESPN's Nascar NOW IN HD no less. :grin: :lol: :grin:

    No, I was merely using NASCAR since it's an easy example. Some people on this board continue to think that auto racing is some 'niche' sport when in fact the majority of NASCAR races have attendance bigger than the SuperBowl every weekend.

    That's not even counting Formula One (the world's second biggest sport), ALMS, GP2, Grand Am, AMA, etc....heck, the bike crowd alone would probably justify it.

    If there's room for an HD fishing channel, there's room for SpeedHD. ;)

    Wow, what an intelligent post

    Anybody that's been around the more popular Satellite website showed know just from the number of post pertaining to SPEED HD there is a pretty sizable amount of interest in this channel.

    Why be a jerk

    But it is a false example when the best of NASCAR isn't on the channel you're pushing. :)

    It would be nice to get Speed HD, but don't hold your breath. Perhaps it will be one of the ones coming "by the end of the year" but I wouldn't count on it.
