    From speedtv.com


    SPEED will make its move to High Definition in 2008, beginning Feb. 7 with 100 hours of NASCAR on SPEED HD from Daytona Speedweeks. Starting with the Gatorade Duel 150’s on SPEED, the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race, NASCAR RaceDay and all of the other programming SPEED will deliver surrounding the 50th Anniversary of the Daytona 500, it is one of our most visible times of the year for the network and the perfect time to launch our move to HD. SPEED already offers some of the most action-filled programming on television and the move to HD in 2008 enhances all of it exponentially.”


    C'mon DISH...lets get the ball rollin on adding SPEED HD

    I've posted my remarks many times.


    Hmm, I wonder if Jack Roush is a fan of Dish HD? Maybe if Jack told Charlie to get Speed HD up and running so the Dish Network advertising on those Fusions would have a meaningful impact. I'm sure Boyer's 07 will be smothered in DirecTV HD advertising. I hope we won't see another embarrassment like we did for the MLB Playoffs.

    GO TOYOTA!!!

    SPEED HD is the one channel that I would switch to D* for. Dish, you have 39 days, or I am gone.

    Honestly, Charlie spends millions to sponsor Jack Roush's cars. He wouldn't just let this SpeedHD thing slip through his fingers. Would he?

    Playing the Daytona track on GT5 Prologue kicks major (_|_)!!!! It's by far better than any "NASCAR" game EA has ever put out.

    Japanese import. There are menu translations on the Playstation GT board and on GTPlanet. The only concrete factual release information there is about the US release is "Spring 2008" according to SCEA. Until SCEA announces the specific date, any mention of a specific date is speculation. Just as the Amazon date of Feb. 19 is speculation and wishful thinking.

    I ordered from eBay through "egamestar" which is AKA "JapanVideoGames.com". I ordered on last Thursday, they shipped it on Friday and I got it on Monday. From Cali. to Michigan via standard USPS. Total was about $56.

    The game is not all in Japanese. It's mixed. Once you get the essentials down, you know what you're doing anyway. There have been some translations for the "News" section.

    You could also import it yourself through PlayAsia for about the same price, but it will take much longer. JVG is an importer.

    I was waiting for some sort of info about the release....anything. Kaz had said in an interview before the JPN release that it would be "After the holidays" for us. SCEA said last week, "Spring" would be our time. So, I jumped online and ordered it. Spring does last until June 19, some people forget that.

    It's funny, on the Daytona leaderboard tower at the track, NEXTEL is still the title sponsor.

    If I could post a link I would, but just read this on The Daly Planet posted Jan. 9, 2008:

    "For Home Dish owners, SPEED HD will be carried by DirecTV from the start, and negotiations are on-going with Dish Network. SPEED HD for the satellite viewers will be added to the program line-up and then appear on the channel menu."
