HDNet Seals NASCAR Deal

Feb 22, 2007  •  Post A Comment

HDNet will air HD replays of the entire NASCAR Nextel Cup series.
The high-definition network will televise the 37 races starting tonight with a replay of the Daytona 500, which was run on Sunday.
HDNet previously just aired coverage of the NASCAR Grand Nationals, programming that will continue.
The news comes as ESPN prepares to take over NASCAR coverage this summer after six years on Fox. ESPN and ABC will carry the final 17 races, with ESPN2 carrying the NASCAR Busch Series.
ESPN also plans to replace in-car cameras with HD cameras.
Meanwhile, according to TVpredictions.com, DirecTV plans to offer its new NASCAR HotPass package in HD next year.
HotPass gives viewers a unique channel for each of their five favorite drivers on which they can watch the race from individual car-mounted cameras. DirecTV currently charges $99 per season for the HotPass.
