Can't say we didn't see it coming.

Most of their content was garbage anyways.

As long as I can still get Grand-Am and Continental Series on the new channel, I am fine.

Are they going to keep AMA supercross live?

If Speed made money with current programing, it doesn't need to be sold to fox.

My guess other than NASCAR, everything else will be on the chopping block.

Speed wasn't sold. It was always owned by News Corp, which owns Fox, etc. This is just housecleaning and rebranding.

All of the F1 broadcasters (which covered all other forms of motorsports on Speed) left for NBC Sports last year after they signed on for F1 broadcasting rights.

The channel was never profitable. I'm surprised it lasted THIS long.

So is NBC going to replace The BBC feed on TSN? I'm going to cringe if it is. I hated the speed commentators

I hope not. BBC is on location. Speed did F1 from a monitor.

TSN feed won't change. They've always been based on BBC commentary. Even when Sky took over 1/2 the races in UK last year, I was surprised BBC still had full commentary live. I'm guessing that Canada isn't the only country that buys english broadcasts from BBC (Kangaroo TV at the races uses the commentary too) so they still make money on it.

Too bad we don't get NBC-Sports here. I have it on my DirecTV, and it's showing live Practice 1, 2, Quali, and Pre-Race, and Race for the Austrailian GP.

When is it ending? Still Speed on my TV.

Speed for the most part has been crap for years
