Get Fox Sports 1 for All in Canada

Joel McDonald has been spearheading the campaign to get Fox Sports 1 to everyone in Canada so that we can all enjoy Supercross and Motocross on TV north of the border. Here is how you can get involved in this fight. Take a few minutes to follow these instructions and let’s see if there really is strength in numbers.

From Joel:

So, many of us loyal Canadian Supercross fans are left at the side lines for watching the sport we love. If you have Rogers, you are probably happy watching the Monster Energy Supercross on THE FOX SPORTS RACING CHANNEL. However, if your Cable/Satellite Provider is BELL or SHAW (the main Providers) you simply don’t get it.

I have been talking to the Executives at both BELL and SHAW (almost daily). Most people don’t know what to do. Well, throughout all my talks with the Executives I have found out that the only thing that they see form their customers is how many CHANNEL REQUESTs they receive. Right now THE FOX SPORTS RACING CHANNEL is the most requested channel at both Providers. We want to keep on with people sending in the CHANNEL REQUESTS. This is a critical time. There are still more fans that have not requested the channel with their providers than the ones that have. We need, more than ever, to saturate them with these very important CHANNEL REQUESTs.

This channel is expensive (not many commercials to pay for the channel). The more CHANNEL REQUESTs we get sent in, the quicker they will move on getting this channel back! We need to show them the real overwhelming numbers so they cannot hesitate any longer to bring back this channel.

I am working to get it to the Moto GP, Nascar, and all the other racing fans that need this channel back. Spread the word through you racing communities and tell them to visit Racer X and DMX. If everyone does their part we will get the FOX SPORTS RACING CHANNEL back!


If you are a SHAW CUSTOMER  just simply copy and paste this template to this email: and fill out your information:


Subject Line: [Channel Request for: City]

Name: [First] [Last]

Account Number: [11 digit Shaw account number]

City: [City],[Province]

Channel(s) Requested: [channel information]


This will go right to the people that need to see it – the Channel Planning Department.

If you are a BELL CUSTOMER you will have to call their phone number (1-866-310-2355) and put in your CHANNEL REQUEST. I have told the Bell executives that everyone hates to call them and mention that SHAW is way easier. I am trying to make it as easy as possible, but taking the time is totally worth it to get the channel back!

For the customers from the smaller providers you may have to contact them directly.

Thanks again,

Joel McDonald
