Hmmmm

The Good News: Motorcycle programming on The Nascar Channel.

Bad News: It airs at 4AM and 10PM, both times Eastern.

Which begs the question, where did they get the name "AMA Pro Prime Time?"

Thanks I'll program my Comcast DVR with that. Unfortunately my cable provider Comcast doesn't offer Speed HD. You can't have everything I guess

Ah the crappy show channel that once was Speed. It sure would be nice to watch racing on it again... But knew that would happen when it was bought and ruined. So sad.

So far this season I saw the superbike race at daytona (12 or 1am sunday morning) and while home sick yesterday I watched the world supersport around 11am on a Monday. Very convenient...

Are you a reputable source we can file complaints with, as to how speed channel is doing things these days, or what?

Hey Speed Geek- What the hell is with the new format? Bring back Two Wheel Tuesday. Let Greg and Bob host a show that's two hours at 7pm. The first half hour can be all the fluff- industry news, personal interest and such. The rest can be all the racing recaps and highlights. The Stunt Boys can take over at 9pm. Then at 10pm show the best race of the weekend in its entirety.
The Saturday night show is a joke right. If I am home Saturday I don't get control of a TV anywhere in the house. Kids, Kids Friends and the Wifey- yeah, how likely is it that I would get to watch what I want. It's bad enough that we don't get to watch the damn races same day. But to insult an entire segment of viewers by airing the races a week or better later is a joke. Sustaining viewers will be tough.

Was this a (not especially subtle) sideways dig at inferring that you're the only one here able to afford "HD", and would have it but for the fact your Superior ISP/CP does not offer this channel in premium format?

Dude, you are so f'n pathetic.

Maybe they don't offer it to gifted equestrian athletes. Comcast has been offering Speed Channel HD to the rest of their subscribers for months.

He's right. Here in ATL Comcast doesn't offer Speed HD. Not in the 'burbs. We're just stuck he in low-res hell.

Who cares if you can watch Harley Davidsons on TV?

NASCARvision was bad enough. Now you're telling me there is a Speed channel for HDs?

Whoop-de-freakin'-doo!
