Did you see how much coverage HD Theater is giving WRC this season? I couldn't believe it, it's like half a day of coverage for each race. They do each day separately, then a bunch of other stuff too. I can't wait.

Ya I'm Sooo Happy how much you can fined on you tube and all in HD
I just wish they would play it on Speed TV again like back in the late 90's early 2000's
but I hooked my computer Screen up to my tv so I can watch it on a nice flat screen
what do you guys think of the new Pro-drive mini??

Chris.

How come you get all the good coverage? Over here WRC used to command prime(ish) time on ITV 1 (one of the big five terrestrial channels), then Bernie bought the rights and it moved to Dave (a small/medium channel) and now its on ESPN the pay sports channel so I can't watch it at all. Its much more interesting and competitive than F1 and the quality of driving is as good as if not better than F1.

I may have to resort to buying Autosport mag now for the WRC fix.

We had WRC coverage on SpeedTV, but they had to make room for the 15-20 NASCAR shows (and I hate NASCAR). So we can't get it unless you buy a premium HD package.

HD Theater is a DISH Network channel. You have to have DISH Network then get the Platinum HD service and HD Theater is available on it. It's on every Sunday, so there is a delay to the season as the first coverage isn't starting till next Sunday and they are on the 2nd or 3rd rally now, but then its on almost every Sunday till the season is over. I was having to resort to torrents online until HD Theater picked it up, but now its there in 1080i!
