I dont think Airtel and other DTHs have woken up to this channels potential. Looks like another 2 months.

Talking

I was frantically searching for this channel on my STB today and wifey comes around asking "Any breaking news?". And to my answer she says - you spent all the time reading the forum and now you want a channel ? . Called up my service provider and asked him about "Discovery Turbo" as I could not find it in my EPG and he says we will get it in few weeks. The wait is on until the channel comes alive

I just hope they price it reasonably whenever they launch it. Or else it will be difficult to convince my father to subscribe for this channel.

It is a great development for people with their heads on wheel. I am sure it is going to make BHPians a lazy bumps on weekend with turbo running in full throttle. As electric heart worries, wifeys will not love watching cars on TV till their last hair falls...will have a tough time in that way. Am sure this channel will kill all the other local automobile shows.

Too bad! Turbo is a part of cosmo pack and have to shell out Rs 45pm extra for this channel. but i guess still its value pack and give a big dose of entertainment for all motorholics!

I have been hooked on to the channel from the time it was launched. Spent half my weekend on it watching "Chop Shop". Bernie and Leepu are a lot of fun. I wonder how their fabrication would impact the car performance but they do a good job in making cars. Lots of good shows up there, I simply love the channel. When I broke the news of this channel to my wife, she was sad that now I will not let out the remote any more. Cheers to the channel, its a boon for all automobile enthusiasts!

at present it is only available to tata sky subscribers but telecasting on other providers is in pipeline and may take another 2 months or so.

If Discovery Turbo in the UK is anything to go by, they will occassionaly have specials when they will show all the episodes of Chop Shop or A 4x4 is born etc etc back to back.
