Dear @canux10 

 

Thank you for your suggestion, we removed the FXX request from this Idea as there is already a duplicate Idea from earlier this year. 

 

We will look into the Sports 1 request. In the meantime, feel free to lend your support to the FXX request:

Cheers,

I agree that Fox sports 1 needs to be added. With Speed channel no longer being offerd by Telus, this puts a huge damper on our Saturday night not being able to watch Supercross or the Monster Energy Cup tonight. For all your Supercross  loving customers please give us Fox Sports 1!

Bring back the SPEED channel, or get FS1 Fox Sports 1.   TSN does not carry all the NASCAR races.  In Canada we now miss out on all the NASCAR truck races and the ARCA races which are exclusive to SPEED and FS1.  Not to mention we miss all the qualifying and pre race shows.   Today is the ARCA debut of the first Female Canadian driver at Daytona, and no one in Canada will see this.   Bring back SPEED channel ?   And please tell me the reason SHAW still has SPEED and Telus does not ?????

Speed Channel is DEAD in Canada, and Fox Sports will never come here because of the CRTC..


August 2013 - Speed Channel (and Fuel TV) in USA re-brands to Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2.  With this change, Speed channel now only broadcasts in Canada, Australia & a few Caribbean Territories with limited programming (simulcasts of the motorsports events on FS1/FS2, and loads repeats of old Speed series).

 2014 - Rogers, Bell, Telus & (later in the year) Cogeco all drop Speed channel.  This leaves us (Shaw Cable and Shaw Direct) as the only major service provider in Canada showing the channel.  (Speed was also re-branded\ended in Australia in November 2014)

April 1st, 2015 - Shaw and Shaw Direct will be dropping Speed channel.  It is very likely that this will be the end of Speed channel as a whole in Canada.

Time to put your money where your mouth is. Now there is no excuse NOT to carry this channel. SPEED is now being REBRANDED and relaunched in Canada as Fox Sports Racing. Unless Telus what's to see a mass exodus if the competition picks this channel up again, i suggest you negotiate and carry this channel.  I'd pay $3 for it alone. Beats that pathetic sports bundle you force people to buy just to get OLN HD!

Rogers is offering Fox Sports Racing just in time for NASCAR, is it time to switch carriers? Come on TELUS give us this motorsports channel!

Telus,I hope your listening.

Foxsportsracing. I'll pay.

I don't think they are. Goodbye at contr

act time.

Is this forum run by anyone from Telus?

Telus is losing customers and still thinks that keeping customers in the dark is the way to go.

To the executives that can read , are you listening?.

Sounds like Shaw is going to beat you to the punch.

Add FOXSPORTSRACING and I won't change a thing,

Optik,home phone ,Internet ,mobile.Contracts are bought out all the time.

Please give us Fox Sports Racing to replace Speed Channel. Our house would pay too and I know several others would also. I have heard that shaw are losing it as of April so you may gain their customers too.

I already suggested it. That

Channel is fox sports racing which replaces speed. It's already available in Canada again as rogers has it already.

Can Telus please add Fox Sports Racing. I'm also willing to pay for this channel. Canada has the worst coverage of motor sports in the world. Can you also apply to the CRTC to let Motors TV to be carried in Canada, now that they have a North American feed.

When Speed TV became FS1 and was then cancelled we lost World Superbike, MotoGP, and tons of other Motorsport. Telus has very little Motorsport covered now but recently I noticed Bein sport is available and signed up for it which gets World Superbike back for $15 per month. MotoGP seems to be on Fox Sports Racing channel which is already listed in the Vancouver Sun TV listings although not available. This is what's left of Speedvision so it's a no brainer for any Motorsport fan. CBS Sports carries the new MotoAmerica Bike race series North Americas Premier road racing. They also have Supercross which I am badly missing. So my vote is Fox Sport Racing and CBS Sports as two badly needed channels. Other providers in my area are carrying both as I understand. Telus is not the place to be for Motorsport fans, I believe they are missing the boat on this fairly large audience segment.

They don't seem to listen or get it they would be the only provider besides rogers bringing the channel back. Shaw get's ride of speed/FSR Apri 1. Reason being they're probably to cheap to spend the money to acquire the channel. It's their way of saving a buck and charging more.


Sure Telus could get the channel IF they wanted to spend the money. I'd gladly pay $3 for it. Like i had to do to get OLN in that horrible theme pack it's in to get 2 other channels i will NEVER watch. It's like the WWE Network they paid to get it why who knows, i had the USA version when locked into 6 months contracts and couldn't wait to leave, severely lacks any original content and wasn't good for much else besides the PPV.
