AT&T Uverse > Direct Tv :yes: :laughing:

I have about 10 of each movie channel such as HBO, Starz, Showtime...ten of each of those.

Yup, Velocity is a good channel. I enjoy Discovery, National Geographic, History2 for the awesome show Modern Marvels and the science channel for How They Make It.

I noticed the Truck Series was being aired on Fox now but didn't know SPEED was gone. :(

Here in Canada they still call it Speed and the line up so far has been mostly motorsports like before.

FS1 sucks. I am not into the crap the show. I really liked Passtime and a couple other shows on Speed. I do have Velocity and it is ok. There are only a few channels I watch out of 200 on my cable package. It would not take much for me to dump the cable and purchase an antenna.

But you will notice that all SPEED original programming has stopped. Any SPEED programming you now see is a re-run. It has been suggested that they have a license in Canada for a Motorsports channel, so until they can change that, it will remain a motorsports channel. I have seen more than enough re-runs of Are You Faster Than A Redneck.

I mostly only watch the actual racing, trucks, qualifying, etc.

What really hurt Speed was losing the Formula 1 races to NBC. The audience is big and regular and NBC had the deep pockets. NBC (various channels, NBC NBCSports) and a couple others get different parts as NBC juggles things and also offers replays within 12 hours because of the odd starting times (6:30 to 7:30 CDT for European races, early afternoon for North American and South American races and between 1:00 AM and 3:00 AM for Asian races). Formula 1 races are seen by 1,000,000,000 people for each race.

The " normally dead" early AM race times gives NBC a big audience when there usually nothing at that time.
