Canadian loose out on the majority of Auto sports racing due to shaw not carrying the programming !
fs1 is not allowed in Canada and even if they were most of there live sports would end up being blacked out
Fox Sports 1 is not only allowed in Canada, it is carried by the largest cable company in eastern Canada, Rogers. They did the switch from Speed to FS1 long time ago. Near as I can recall, Rogers and Shaw made an agreement decades ago that swapped their cable customers, Shaw cable got the west of Canada, Rogers got the east of Canada. Wouldn't surprise me if there was not some sort of agreement also made in regards to Fox Sports. At the time Shaw Direct was known as StarChoice. No idea why ShawDirect does not listen to customers and simply negotiate a deal with Fox Sports for service. But then again, I am just a lowly customer, what do I know.
Forgot to mention, NASCAR coverage as well as LeMans, MotoGP, and other motorsports are NOT blacked out on Fox Sports on Rogers cable. I know this because I have to go to a friends house to watch these shows when I want to see them.
no in Canada speed channel changed to fox sports racing and in the the states it changed to FS1
Fox Sports Racing is a Canadian only Channel created by Fox to replace Speed in Canada. Shaw dropped Speed just as FSR was coming on air. Rogers continues to provide FSR while Shaws response is to Lock any forum created to complain about this lack. I can only assume that someone on the board of directors hates motor racing. They sure seem to have a woodie for golf tho...
After doing some basic internet searching I am left wondering if maybe there is some hanky panky going on between Shaw, Rogers and Fox regarding this station. Shaw refuses to state why they are ignoring requests from long time faithful customers. for this station. Makes me wonder if there is a channel that is exclusive to Shaw that offsets the missing Fox Sports Racing channel.
My dad is a Telus customer (in BC) as they recently added Fox Sports Racing and MAVTV to his lineup. I also want these two channels Shaw! Don't give me an excuse to switch...
We have free preview MAVTV in eastern Canada. MAVTV carries what the original TNN carried minus NASCAR. We don't get any NASCAR Trucks, or any of the same day regional racing that is on Fox Sports that Rogers carries. Our Speed channel changed to Velocity, Rogers changed to Fox Sports.
Shaw has been ignoring this channel for 5 years since people started talking bout it . Try to google Shaw fs1 or fsr. Shaw will never get it. Sorry to break the bad news.
hope you have a good day.
