Although I've been watching their coverage of Rally America, I really don't like it. IIRC it was only a 30 min. or 1hr show and seemed too compressed for my likingl. If they streched it out to 2hrs or 3hrs they could fit a lot more action in.

Just my .02

And they'd be paying 3x as much for those shows. This is the first Season for RA coverage, the first time on OLN, and a new production company for US rally, it will improve and already is an improvement from the old Speed show. Write emails to OLN saying ya love the show and want more.

Thumbs down DishNet's Loss

Booo, DishNet dumped OLN.

Double boo, since I heard that our dear departed wrecked WRX was featured quite sideways in the opening sequence for MFR. (which I have yet to see, thanks to DishNet canceling OLN.)

Did I mention that this ticked me off?

Good incentive to switch satTV providers.

Are you kidding? Nobody would watch that.. I don't think I'd even sit through that much coverage. Speed TV tried this in 2002 with loads of daily and weekly WRC coverage. [And Ralph Shaheen *shivers* ] It didn't work.

While the current Rally America TV production is flawed, 30 minutes is enough for a taste. An hour show would be fun but likely longer than could be supported.

I was at the STPR rally this year and while watching it on OLN I saw myself!!! I'm famous. I also agree that the time is far from being long enough. There is so much going on in one weekend, they really couldn't show everything. They mainly focused on the Group N class. There were over 50 cars at STPR this year and they probably show less than 10 of them on the coverage. But still, rally is rally. And Nascar sucks! I want more!

I also have DishNet. I wrote a letter to Comcast (ower of OLN) to tell them to lower the price demand for the channel so that DishNet could carry it without any additional costs. Hopefully if enough people write to Comcast they will ;lower thier price.

Living in 'Comcast country', I understand that they simply won't care. This will only help them get more subscribers to thier digital cable.

Anyways, I'm 100% satisfied with the OLN coverage, it's one hell of an improvement over a year ago! (No coverage?)

Plus, I got to see myself during the STPR too.

Beggers simply can't be choosers in this situation, you can't beg for more rally coverage and then whine because it's 'not enough'. Baby steps...

Tivo completely and utterly OWNS its cheaper if you have like, Cox cable and just rent it from them for like 5 bucks a month. otherwise you spend a crapload of money on the box, then you gotta buy the service too. but if you can add it onto your bill then its the shizz

They need to rerun that same rally now... now that there is couple feet of snow on the ground.. that would be wicked. I mean 8 cars rolled over when it was just dirt.... I like to watch them in snow....

I love OLN and just watched Travis's Crash... it was a nice STi.

I'm so glad I had to tape the rally this afternoon.

Just watched it. Travis' crash was amazing, especially in slo-mo. I'm pretty sure I'd be sick after doing something like that, he didn't even look like he was shaking when he got out of the car.

Looked like he shortened the corner and hit a deep ditch... and then...well rolled and rolled.
I'd be sick from wrecking a $60,000 car.
