I for one am on the fence on if i'll pay. I can almost ignore the fact that there was a lack of cameras on course, but the connection feed always sucked for me.



Remember the Lumber yard, go balls out.

Indeed man, I wouldn't pay a dollar to watch those races, when more than 60% of the time last year, the feed was worse than awful...

I would kill myself if I pay some money to watch them and I get the same issues...

Sucks that you won't be able to semi-watch them for free like last year, but shit happens...

They should have it for free this year so you can try the "new" stuff and see if it is worth paying for next year, because last year was not worth paying for.

I'd be willing to pay if:
a.) The feed has no issues at all
b.) Additional Cameras throughout the course
c.) Better quality video (not looking for 1080p here, just something that looks better on my HD TV)
d.) It's cheap

But, I think if they offered it as a package deal of sorts, like if you pre-order the freecaster DVD before the season starts you get access to watch freecaster all season long.

Kind of defeats the purpose of calling it Freecaster, huh?

In all seriousness, I'm simply not interested unless the streaming actually works.

Bummer. Maybe if you pay to watch Warner won't have to self-censor his commentary...

there is no way im gonna pay for this unless i get to see more than 30 seconds of peoples runs and a good feed, and i probably still wouldnt pay for it
just plain dumb

If it's true that the 4x is still free, I'm stoked.

I've got no problem paying what essentially amounts to a super big gulp (mix the flavors!), but only if the feed works. More important than the paultry money is the fact that I often blew off riding to watch these races only to get dicked with a disfunctional broadcast.

I also realize that paying 2-3 bucks isn't shlt for what's involved in setting up a broadcast with multiple cameras. I'm still stoked on freecaster even taking this on. Because before them........NOTHING.
