I am an avid auto racing fan of all types of events. Most importantly, I miss my viewing of F1 and Le Mans 24hr. I would love to pay for individual sports racing channels without having to buy in to a package. Would much rather have Pay-per-View available for auto racing covering both domestic and international events like Le Mans. Telus really needs to expand its PPV lineup, not all of us are into wrestling and current lineup choices. Fox Sport 1 should be available for this.

This has been suggested numerous time (Fox Sports Racing) like some of the other posts in ideas where it has been suggested at least 10 times.


AS for Fox sports 1 or 2 it will NEVER come to canada as it's not a licensed channel to even be provided here. Nor will the CRTC ever allow them to enter canada to compete with Rogers Sportsnet or TSN.


Only channel that has legal rights to be picked up in canada is Fox sports Racing (AKA Old SPEED).


As for PPV racing events it has never happened in any series and never will. They have television contracts with those providers and that's it. Racing isn't the UFC, WWE, etc so it will never have a PPV option.

It was bad enough Telus dropped Speed and didn't replace it with anything, such as Fox sports racing .  Now you drop NHL Network ???

And replace it with nothing ??

I will be demanding a refund.  What's the point of a sports package if you keep dropping the best channels ???

Bring back NHL network and get Fox Sports Racing.   

This is getting ridiculous

I'm done with Telus Optik TV, Home Phone and Internet.

Telus has nothing to do with the NHL network leaving the lineup. All providers are losing it in Canada. When Rogers won the broadcasting rights, the NHL network gave the 40 games it broadcasted to Rogers. Having not much need for the channel after that, being in SD never helped it either.


20 staffers at NHL Network Canada were told the league is closing Canadian operations Sept.1. Hard to offer a channel that has the plug being yanked from it...

So won't help to get mad, go complain to the NHL they pulled the plug on Canadian operations..

Telus telus telus!!! Please give us Fox Sports Racing on OpticTV and Sat.  I have been a loyal customer for over 20 years and now have internet, optic and tel with you as well as my brother having sat tv and tel with you.  Right now we are looking at local cable companies to change all our service because no more racing channel from you.

Here is the email I just sent to tvfeedback@telus.com, feel free to cut and paste and send it yourselves. Worth a try, it worked to get Speed TV HD added (while it lasted):

I would like to see Fox Sports Racing added to Telus Satellite TV popular package and to Optik TV. We used to have Speed TV, now that there is a new option I think it should be added again. This type of racing coverage is not offered on any other Canadian sports channel. 

It is available on Rogers, would be a shame to have to switch considering I am a long term TV, internet and phone subscriber with Telus.

I'm from Alberta and an avid racer myself. I know at least a few hundred people within our race club that would purchase Fox Sports 1 & 2 right now, please listen to the public Telus, we are asking that you bring back racing.

New racing season is coming soon. And with Pick and Pay coming March 1st, this is the perfect time for Telus to add Fox Sports Racing. Come on Telus, drop the green flag and let us choose this channel.

I'm a hugh NHRA and NASCAR fan that is chocked to find out it's not going to be carried in Canada. Telus, you need to correct this now. You do have a great product in optic TV, but I'll switch in a wink of an eye if another carrier gets Fox Racing first!! P.S.

I completely agree. With the new Nascar season started, I listen to my husband EVERY Weekend talk about this. 

I pay to live stream events on my computer. We loved the SPEED channel, but I wants all of my Nascar events back. Trucks, XFinity, Sprint. I pay for Velocity already, I'll pay for Fox as well. 

 

Bring it.
