So long Speed Channel

Really bummed about the Speed channel changing to Fox Sports 1 on the 17th. At least they are keeping the hub, race day, and victory lane. Really going to miss speed center. Was also glad to hear they will continue to show Barrett Jackson. RIP Speed :(

Re: So long Speed Channel

I'll miss speed as I watch several of the shows they put on weekly. I'll also miss Dave Displain. I'm not sure our cable has the upgrade(or whatever they call it) to beable to get any of this. It still bugs me the government messed with TV anyway. If I have to buy another set of channels I will give up and only watch Tony DVD's which includes Homstead 2011. I wish I had the first race he won at the Brickyard.

Re: So long Speed Channel

We have Time Warner :( ......I found something very interesting, they now have a new PPV Fox Sports 1..... From what I understand we won't be seeing any of the truck races on the Fox Sports 1, and I wonder if they are going to start to carry them with PPV. I hope this is not a sign of things to come.. :( I wonder how many of the announcers will come to the new channel?

NDunn this is all I could find of Tony's win at the Brickyard 400 2005... I'll keep looking....


:D :D :D :D :D LOOK WHAT I FOUND...... :D :D :D :D :D :D
THIS IS NOT THE WHOLE RACE BUT IT'S THE BEST PART...... ENJOY!! Get the Kleenex....... Happy tears!



AND HERE IS THE REST OF THE FInish of the race...... LOVE THAT WALLY DALLENBACH AND BENNY PARSONS CALL THE RACE.........

Re: So long Speed Channel

I just did a chat with Time Warner up here, well NY as my regional office is closed for the night and was told I have to contact them directly. The channels are there, set up, but they do not say PPV and I was told that if it does not say PPV that it is included in my package most probably, but I need to talk to my regional office to be sure. So I need to talk to the people in Portland, ME to know for sure. I was told that some areas of the country were on a PPV, others were included, and still others had partial availability. So time will tell on what I find out. I may wait and find out because the package I have has everything except the PPV movie channels like HBO, Starz, and others similar to it.

Re: So long Speed Channel

Fox Sports 1 is still negotiating deals with Time Warner, Dish & DirecTV. Some folks may not get the new channel by Saturday.
