High-definition WRC coverage coming to America

Television coverage of the FIA World Rally Championship will be available to millions of households in the USA later this year thanks to a new partnership between series promoters, ISC, and the Discovery Channel's HD Theater network.

WRC programming will be shown weekly on HD Theater starting in October. As well as coverage from every round of the championship, a range of other features and news bulletins will be shown.

Part of the Discovery Channel's range of networks, HD Theater is one of the most widely distributed high-definition services available in the United States. Specialising in adventure, technology, nature and world culture programming, HD Theater also covers a number of racing events, all of which are shown in a 1080i picture format and with 5.1 digital surround sound.

“This is tremendous news for the championship and our fans in the United States," said Simon Long, ISC CEO. "It is a ground breaking deal which means the WRC has a high-profile broadcast presence in the United States via a hugely-respected, quality and innovative partner in Discovery Communication’s HD Theater,”

“We’re looking forward to the opportunity to take the WRC to an ever wider audience in the significant U.S. market, and working with HD Theater to bring more attention to what we firmly believe is an ‘epic motorsport adventure by the world’s greatest drivers,’” he added.

Clark Bunting, president and general manager of HD Theater, said: "HD Theater has been a pioneer in high-definition programming and we are excited to introduce the FIA World Rally Championships to our American audience. This year we’ve seen the action go from the snow-covered roads of Norway to the hairpin turns climbing the Cordobese Sierras of Argentina, and the adrenaline-fuelled rally action will shine in high-definition."

Oh fuck yeah! WRC in HD is going to be the shit.

HD Net is broadcasting the Autobahn Grand Prix, so that should be a blast to watch in HD for people who don't make it out to Joliet.

finally its back in america. not that its ever stopped me from watching it all those years it hasnt been broadcast here. its just a shame wrc is boring as hell now.. i still watch it, but it just depresses me when i think back to the good ol days of wrc. those were some fantastic battles... gronholm, makinen, solberg (when subaru actually made a GOOD car), mcrae (RIP ) , burns (RIP ) , sainz, hell even marko martin.

except for loeb, the drivers today just dont stand up those standards. and now its bascially a munufacturer battle between ford and citroen. no other cars exist unless youre running a private team.

I do enjoy watching solberg fight to keep up w/ the pack in his 06 spec car tho, he does pretty damn well for having an inferior car to everyone else. makes me sad that no one picked up him this season for a manufactur ride...
