Established in Late 2011, this turbocharged channel Upgrades HD Theater's Car Programming with Diverse New Original Series and Specials
Velocity, an upscale male lifestyle network, will feature more than 400 premiere hours of new and returning series and specials showcasing the best of the automotive, sports and leisure, adventure, and travel genres. Hit series including INSIDE WEST COAST CUSTOMS, MECUM AUTO AUCTIONS, CAFÉ RACER, and CHASING CLASSIC CARS, will be pillars of the Velocity primetime lineup. By offering world-class production values and picture quality, Velocity will continue HD Theater's reputation for stunning visuals, established when it became the first-ever all-HD network in 2002.
Velocity's programming is character-driven, dramatic and engaging. From multi-million dollar auctions and incredible auto makeovers, to high-stakes gaming and insider guides to "the good life," Velocity touches on all the subjects that appeal to the upscale man. The on-air look and feel of Velocity is both timeless and timely, from its neo-classic logo and graphics package, to its prominent usage of rock and roll music.
"In the same way that a car once defined the person who drove it, Velocity will define the viewer who watches it, " said Robert S. Scanlon, Senior Vice President of Velocity. "Whether you are a car aficionado or just someone who prefers fast-paced, high-stakes television, Velocity will become a must-have entertainment destination."
