News Subiesport Returns!


Big news for Subaru enthusiasts and NASIOC is where you heard it first! Subiesport is coming back! This time the guys aren't going to create a great magazine, they're going big time with full-on TV series... that's like a magazine... I'll let Ryan explain:
KIRKLAND, WASHINGTON, June 18, 2012 -- MediaSpigot LLC announced the re-launch of Subiesport Magazine as multi-platform television series making its debut this Fall. The reborn Subiesport will contain magazine-style video content and follow a traditional print publication schedule. To help fund this innovative new show, MediaSpigot is holding a pledge drive at the series’ official web site, http://www.subiesport.tv.

Launched in 2004 as a print publication, Subiesport began with a similar fundraising campaign. Due to its enthusiastic base of readers, the magazine rose quickly to become the world’s largest independent Subaru enthusiast magazine with 70,000 readers in 68 countries worldwide.

“Subaru owners are uniquely passionate about their vehicles and they demand nothing short of the best. Like the magazine before it, with Subiesport TV we aim to deliver a show that is nothing less than the best car show around that will be enjoyable by enthusiasts of all makes and models.” Said Ryan Douthit, founder of Subiesport Magazine, producer of the new series and himself an owner of six Subarus. “That isn’t going to be cheap.”

“Subiesport TV’s combination of broadcast quality production, instant online distribution and magazine-style content makes Subiesport TV a truly groundbreaking series,” Douthit continued. “Subiesport TV is taking print magazines to a place they’ve always wanted to go... they just didn’t know it. And, thanks to the proliferation of mobile video devices like the iPad, iPhone and Android tablets and phones, distribution of a hybrid series like this is no longer a problem. I firmly believe that within five years, many magazines will transition to a similar format.”

When the first episode makes its debut, viewers will have the opportunity to watch the full-length show online for free at several online destinations including Blip.tv, Blinkx and YouTube. For a commercial-free viewing experience, viewers can optionally become a member of the show’s official site, http://www.subiesport.tv. The new series will be represented by John McLean Media to international broadcast markets.
I'm supporting the Subiesport team in this as I think it will do some amazing things for the community. Like the magazine before it, there are a lot of NASIOC members involved in this groundbreaking series.

I still own every issue that was ever released, including the DVD and the first merged issue of Grassroots/Subiesport.

Good luck guys.

The way the magazine ended left a bad taste in many people's mouth. I never did get the last issue / DVD.

If Grassroots is doing the new Subiesport TV magazine you would be correct, but if it's the original owners bring it back in a new format than our concerns / complaints are still valid. If you did your research than you know what a complete disaster the final days of Subisport was. I have no problems with Grassroots.

To everyone who's whining about getting "screwed" over their subscriptions, you have two jobs.

1. Get mad.

2. Get over yourselves!

Magazines come and go. Some gracefully, some not so gracefully. It happens. Deal with it and move on. I've subscribed to more magazines than I can count and most of them have either disppeared or morphed into a completely different publication. Do I whine about it? Hell no! They're still about subjects I'm interested in. Which is what this new venture will be. Something we're ALL interested in. I say let's get behind it and enjoy it while it lasts.

Or continue to whine. Several of you seem very good at it.
