I just found out that News Corp, which owns Speed channel, all of the Fox channels that air in the US will be off air on many cable/satelite channels starting Nov1. From what I can gather, New Corp wants a 40% increase in fees that I know, Direct TV for one, will discontinue carrying the aforementioned channels. I use Direct Tv, so I was really flabbergasted to hear this, as I pay quite a bit for the service. I guess this means that unless I can find an alternate way to watch F1, Im not going to be able to watch anymore F1..Heck, the only reason I use DTV is for Speed, n if NewsCorp rates are going up for them, they are going up for every TV subscriber service.
Ive been watching Speed since it was SpeedVision..remember that? And although its become nascarchannel the last few years, they did carry F1.
So to Bob Varsha, Steve Matchet and David Hobbs, I bid farewell..its been a good run. So sorry that greed will not permit me to watch you guys anymore. What a drag.
