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.
