We could spend hours watching the videos on YouTube or Comedy Central, but a new past time may rise out of the primordial ooze that is the Internet. The TV blog, trivialTV, stumbled upon a trademark filing by SPEED channel for Speed Garage. What is Speed Garage? The filing states it is for "downloadable television programs and audio visual content." That makes you want to stroke your billy goat beard, doesn't it? SPEED content on the web, and perhaps even FREE! We're champing at the bit to see what they have to offer.


They have speculated over at trivialTV that the Speed Garage site will be off the main SPEED TV site, somewhere near the Speed Store in the site navigation bar. If you can't wait for the Speed Garage free site, and perhaps you're not lucky enough to get the channel on satellite or cable, iTunes has some of SPEED's shows available for purchase. There are some videos on the site now, but we hope the new video site provides downloadable content as well as a more dynamic design.

Thanks for the tip, MikeV!

      This is the future. Try YouTube and you will see. We are going to think of TV as we know it as boring in a few years. Our attention span is infitesimal and this will make the Internet a perfect medium. Not saying it is good or bad just trying to predict the future.

      Bah! I'll care about SPEED when they start covering rally again!

      I always thought it was 'chomping at the bit'. Anymore it looks like its 'champing at the bit'. What the hell does 'champing at the bit' mean?

      Yay, another "service" that will be riddled with DRM. Watch it flop.

      I loved Speed TV when AutoWeek, Road & Track, and Motor Trend had their TV shows. But those days are gone, restricted to Barrett-Jackson and NASCAR. Give me more SCCA GT events and Le Mans series races and I'll call it worthy of watching. Autoline Detroit, the only show I still watch regularly, is available online already. I feel Speed TV's move is a good one. Cut down the BJ and NASCAR coverage and you have a winner.

      Too bad that when Speed Vision changed hands, the quality of programming went right down the tube. I bought DirecTV in 1999 just for SC - now the only thing I watch on it is Le Mans once a year.
