Football/Nascar/F1 fans... would you rent this service? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Thanks!

I don't understand it.
If I wanted to watch a race on TV, it would be a heck of a lot cheaper to pay the cable company or a satellite tv company for service and stay home. The purpose of going to a race is to see it in person. I would pay to see races that are not presently covered by video media, but this 'service' does not appear to be anything like that.

My mindset is much like yours. I would never pay to have such a thing. However it seems most don't get the full feel for what these devices are capable of just from viewing the website.

Each service varies quite a bit from the other.

For example, with the Nascar unit you can get all of the in car camera channels that are available via Direct TV plus you can listen to the drivers communication with the pit crew just by typing in the car #. For many years Nascar fans have carried scanners, so this may appeal to that crowd. If I'm not mistaken Nascar is where Kangaroo has been most successful.

With the NFL version you can watch any NFL game that is in progress, see live updated stats on any game and any player plus all fantasy football stats.

I haven't seen what you actually get with the F1, Le Mans and EPGA services.
