HD Theater (Comcast for me)...Rolling out interesting shows for Fall

Even though the WRC field has some big time teams gone, watching the footage in HD is nice. These drivers are madmen, the Ireland rally was insane...rain, single lane roads, in the dark at over 150kph.

Sick.

They also had an hourlong recap of the Isle of Man TT Superstock. Another hour of watching madmen at play.

Check it out...

I recorded the WRC races. HD theater is becoming a really cool channel.

I'm not short. I'm aerodynamically efficient.

I watched the Isle of Man program. I'm not familiar with the riders but it was awsome to watch these guys fly in HD.

I came here to drink some beer and kick some ass. And it looks like we are all out of beer.

They're showing European Speedway racing now too. There's more good race coverage on HDT than there is on Speed.

Agreed...still as with all sports channels, they tend to love hearing themselves speak rather than showing the race.

The douche interviewing Rossi during the TT coverage was painful...it felt like Rossi definitely wanted to be left alone.

Great coverage but the shit just keeps on repeating over and over again. Get's a little tiresome after the 3rd time you've watched IOM in HD with slow mo chassis twisting power wheelie shots
