    I saw it a couple of hours ago......  It is just promos....   First Apple starts letting Fox and FX force commercials into paid content, and now new channles that are just promos....  Roku is starting to look a lot more viable.

    Odd one.

     

    Won't appeal to me, but kids/teenagers may love all the skateboarding stuff etc

     

    Not sure I'm too keen on branded TV channels like this appearing....

    Doesn't seem to be just promos on mine!

     

    There's full programes and docs some if which are 1 hour plus long!

     

    There's some excellent stuff on there, lots of mountain bike stuff including Rampage! X-games, loads and loads of stuff fantastic upgrade as far as I'm concerned and free!

     

    We'll done Apple!

    I watched a short skateboarding clip yesterday - not my kind of thing but the interviewee was wearing a Red Bull baseball cap and drank red bull at the end.  Maybe a touch too commercial.

     

    That said there were some 'emerging artist' things in Music which were quite varied with even a harpist.

    I think the fact it's the Red Bull channel will dictate that everything on there will be branded red bull? It's there channel!

    They sponsor just about every form of sport with a bias towards the adventure sports including the highest free fall ever attempted! Only 3 minutes long but the entire free fall from space only lasted 4 minutes!

     

    There's plenty of full length docs on there but then I guess you would have to have an interest in that category of sports!

    Ya, it is one big Red Bull promo.   I am guessing they cut Apple a nice check to get it on there.  Not a good sign of things to come.  Kind of like the Korean channle.....  I am just left asking why?

    I think it's a very intersting addition even if not something I'd use a lot myself - it's clearly aimed at people who enjoy those kind of sports/activities.
