AMG says that as a recognized network brand that originated the automotive lifestyle genre in the 1990s, Speedvision “delivers a combination of storytelling, iconic hosts and premier production values, making it the preeminent destination for auto enthusiasts.”
“We are excited to be partnering with Speedvision to bring our viewers more free premium automotive content,” said Byron Allen, founder/chairman/CEO of Allen Media Group. “We are continuously expanding our special interests and lifestyle content library in order to provide our audience diverse entertainment.”
“The original Speedvision was the best media brand ever offered to the auto enthusiast audience and those fans still see it as the high-water mark in the genre,” said President-CEO Robert Scanlon, a co-founder of the original network in 1995. “I know from first-hand experience that the team of content creators and strategic partners that we’ve enlisted for the new Speedvision will match and build upon the legacy of the original, which has been imitated many times but never equaled.”
