I follow much of the ALMS via Radio Le Mans, and the Midweek Mototsport Listeners Collective on FB. Some of their British rants can be a bit much at times though. But they have good coverage of F1, DTM, BTCC and other road racing. Many nights I've stayed up late following the 24hrs of Le Mans.

Subscriber to the online service or subscriber to CATV? I can't imagine how they could ever tell whether you were a CATV subscriber.
I will gladly pay for an online service, but have no interest in paying for CATV (157 channels and nothing on...). Between Hulu and other services you can find almost everything on TV you'd ever want to watch, EXCEPT for racing!!! Grrrr....
Hopefully this will do well and others will take notice. CATV is a dead-end technology.

I have recommended this to Speed for years. Road racers are busy in the weekends playing with cars and usually watch racing content on the DVR, fast forwarding the commercials.
An online channel is great and should be offset by advertisers to make it free to the end user or very cheap to the end user. We will probably have to watch a :15 or :30 pre-roll advertiser video and have banner ads running next to the content. But, if done right, the ads will at least be relevant to racing fans.
