@Likarok  FS1 and FS2 will never be available in Canada, they do not want to be in the Canadian market place. There are already enough sports networks in Canada and the CRTC would protect them. That being said there is a wide variety of programming that is no longer available to Canadians. Since the old Speed channel was dropped, only a few carriers picked up Fox Sports Racing (they have monster trucks, motocross etc).

 

The bigger the carrier the more Fox Sports Racing (fox sports) would try to leverage in the asking price to carry the channel. It has to make economic sense to pay the kind of money they demanded. Most carriers have the data to see how much the Speed channel was used in the past to come to the decision.

Welcome to socialist Canada. We should be able to watch what ever we want. Sorry TSN but I would rather poke a stick in my eye than watch curling on all 5 of your channels!

 

Looks like there is a market for a good pirate system!

Still under review three years later. Considering some of the rubbish, and other niche channels carried by Telus I'm surprised this hasn't happened yet. Fox Sports Racing needs to come to Telus. 

 

The Daytona 24 hour race is on this weekend, and once again nobody in Western Canada have the option to watch  it on TV. Frustrating to say the least.

Alister: What, you don't want to spend those 24 hrs watching My Zen TV or maybe one of the 7 (last time I counted) "faith" based channels we get "for free"?

So much for pick and pay.

 

Anyway, there were lots of live streams on YouTube for last years Le Mans race. I hope to find some for Daytona this weekend. That and spend some time considering whether to drop Optik TV entirely and just watch everything online.

If you live in Canada you are supposed to be addicted to watching Hockey and Curling 24/7, otherwise you are not a good Canadian! And n a week or so the frigging Olympics. hahaha I already have a batch of sticks sharped to poke in my eyes for two weeks! hahaha

 

As Canadians we have to face the fact that the federal govt. decides what we can watch on TV. That is the Canadian govt. through Bell and Rodgers decide what we can watch. We are forced to break the law to watch what we want on TV!

I would love to see FOX SPORTS RaCING or Foxsports (FS!/2). I love all the racing that Speed channel used to show and now we dont have any of that. TSN only shows the top two NASCAR series. I like to watch the truck series Arca and NHRA. Oh yea ever since Fox Sports took over the NHRA, TSn does not braodcast any NHRA drag racing anymore. Another motorsport lost to Canadian fans who love to follow their motorsports.

So can we please get one of these channels for 2018
