I understand why they are not able to play the live races and incar stuff, but why not just have the talk shows on Sirius Online, and then the races or anything like that come on, just black it out?
I've been saying the same thing for a year now. If there were a show on one of the "sports" channels and that show talks about nascar, couldn't that show be streamed online?Change the name to Sirius "Stock Car" Radio on Channel 128??
Doubt that would work.
We have talked about this frequently over the last couple of years, but here's the explanation again, in a nutshell. Regardless of the names of its individual programs Sirius NASCAR Radio is a NASCAR-branded product. Turner Sports (owners of NASCAR.com) holds the exclusive rights to stream all NASCAR-branded content on the internet. Sirius has attempted to negotiate a reasonable deal with Turner to put our talkshows on the worldwide web, but has unfortunately been unable to do so.If there were a show on one of the "sports" channels and that show talks about nascar, couldn't that show be streamed online? How could it cause legal troubles? There's other shows online that talk nascar. Don't have "nascar" in the name of the show.
