Well, I'll definitely be staying subscribed now. I've wanted something like this for awhile. Now whichever track (Port or Lincoln) I go to I can watch the other feature when I get home. Awesome.

This is a move in the right step but I'm not sure it's enough to salvage me paying $40 for the Speedshift pass. Their schedule has been kind of light, and I think the problem they will run into is that they will run head to head against themselves (ie: multiple shows on the same night) as well as running head to head with WoO on most race nights. WoO is gonna win every time for me. 

I paid the $40 for February for Speedshift because it made sense if I wanted to watch all of the All Star races at Bubba and I haven't used it since then. 

I like the FastPass model and am glad others have embraced it, but DV has the best content for me and what I would assume most of sprint car fans. I'm curious to see what they have in mind for Knoxville. If they had like a $49/mo plan that included WoO sprints and Knoxville, I might upgrade. However, I don't see myself buying a standalone plan for Knoxville given I'll already be tied up with WoO on virtually every Saturday night.

I'm more concerned about local PA racing, but if I didn't go to so many races and thought I could follow the whole Outlaw season Dirtvision would definitely be worth it. At this point I just follow the Outlaws and Allstars via highlights but often times when Port has a big show one of the considerations is missing a weekly show at Lincoln. Now I can go to Port knowing that I can still watch that show at Lincoln, and vice versa. I would love to see Williams Grove added, and Jackson Motorplex is also a great addition. If they added WG and BAPS races it would be perfect. I go to most of the shows in Central PA that don't conflict with other shows, but it would sure be nice to know I could watch the WG feature on nights when I go to Trail Way or somewhere else.

I did the same as you and agree with your assesment.  This weekend they have some kind of Stock Cars from Texas and they're not Late Models so there probably won't be any familiar drivers.  I'll check it out to see what kind of Stock Cars they actually are but my guess is something along the lines of an IMCA Stock Car. 

This is the third streaming service I have used having watched the Outlaws on Dirtvision and Knoxville weekly shows on the Cushion.  I don't regret signing up and taking Speed Shift for a test drive and I'm sure I'll use it again in the future but I'll probably opt for a month of the Outlaws in March. 

My situation is that I'm retired on a fixed income so that makes this hodge podge of streaming services a bit of a problem to get past my accountant (aka my wife).  She doesn't understand why we can stream 65 channels on Direct TV Now for $40 and a month of Netflix for $10 or $15 or whatever it costs now.  She is not a racing fan and never will be so it's hard to make a good argument why I should pay $40 a month for a handful of Sprint Car races when we can get all of that value on content that she likes.  I'm sure right about now that hard core racing fans with plenty of disposable income are rolling their eyes at me but hey, I've been following this sport since 1960 and would like to continue to follow it.  Going forward our season (if this brutal winter ever ends) starts in April and I'll be following my neighbor in his first year in a limited Sprint Car so won't be streaming as much.  I'll probably get a few Knoxville weekly if the price point stays around $20 as I can't commit to watching every Saturday night during the summer.  That is the clincher for me, what happens to the Knoxville weekly streaming prices.  I like to keep up with a couple drivers I know personally who race down there, Tatnell who lives nearby  and Dollansky who I first met in 2003 and is coming out of retirement.  The question is what will the price be because these racing PPV services don't bless us long time supporters of the sport with a senior discount.  wink

The key to the Speed Shift VIP is watching our schedule. Even if the live show isn’t part of the VIP (some tracks wish to have a standalone PPV as opposed to us outright buying broadcast rights), you can still watch the race once it’s archived into our On-Demand. For instance, while we are broadcasting IMCA Stock Cars this weekend on the VIP, we also have a stand-alone PPV of the World Series Sprint Cars at Albany Speedway in Australia. That happens a little too late for a lot of people in the US, but your VIP will let you watch it On-Demand the next day. Next weekend we have USCS Sprints from Southern Raceway on the VIP and two days of the World Series Sprint Cars from Bunburry as a stand-alone PPV.

With us buying rights for the VIP pass, we’re not really running against ourselves as all that content is available for our subscribers. Two events you’d like to see on at the same time? Bounce back and forth between the two or watch one live and the other On-Demand the next day, not to mention we have five years worth of shows in our archives already and there’s a lot of good New Zealand Sprint and Midget action sitting in there from this past season just waiting for you.

We have, hands down, the most diverse offering in the online motorsports broadcast world. If it’s motorsports, we’re all about it. Watch for more press releases in the coming weeks as we‘ll Be adding even more VIP content.

Thanks for the comment Chet, and you do make some good points, however, most diverse does not inherently create value. I, and I'd assume many others, do not care to watch replays of events that have already completed. And while you do have a unique point on the Australia shows, those will disappear here shortly as it goes to the offseason down under. 

I think you will sell some subscriptions and am glad you are offering the service - more streaming is never a bad thing to me. Good luck with the endeavour.
