Happy to hear about a new source for quality motorcycle and powersports video content, as XcelerateTV is set to launch. The brainchild of Chet Burks, who has had decades producing motorcycle content for Speedvision, MavTV, and Velocity, XcelerateTV will be free of advertising by using a subscription-based model. It will also host the return of reality-lifestyle shows What’s In The Barn and Café Racer, as well as new shows like Flat Track Fridays hosted by dirt-track legend Chris Carr.
Veteran powersports media executives launch XcelerateTV, the first and only On-Demand network devoted to motorcycle and powersport enthusiasts.
Marietta, GA: Xcelerate Media Group announces XcelerateTV, the first-of-its kind Streaming Video on Demand Network focused exclusively on powersports. Leveraging the shift in media consumption away from traditional broadcast and the loss of powersports media channels, XcelerateTV will be distributed globally on digital platforms, serving motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide.
Founded by enthusiasts with more than 100 collective years of experience in motorsports television broadcasting, lifestyle programs, filmmaking, marketing and advertising, XcelerateTV is the authoritative source of world-class powersports programming.
Available on all major streaming services, the XcelerateTV app will provide exclusive content, including original series, hundreds of hours of unique historic content and coverage of AMA racing events.
In addition, subscribers will have access to product reviews, instructional shows from Fastrack Academy, documentaries about iconic bikes and innovators such as Dan Gurney, and the return of popular shows including Cafe Racer and What’s in the Barn. Seven-time national dirt-track champion Chris Carr will host Flat Track Fridays and provide a retrospective look at the heroes of flat track racing in some of the most exciting and dangerous races of their careers.
XcelerateTV gives subscribers inside access that engages and entertains in a way unmatched by incumbent media outlets—thanks in part to our archives of original footage dating back 40 years, and extensive experience operating successful media companies with high-quality content and production portfolios.
Chet Burks, President, XcelerateTV, has produced a wide variety of award-winning sports programming for multiple networks, including CBS, NBC, ABC, ESPN, Velocity, and others. His company is responsible for introducing a variety of motorcycle racing and related lifestyle programming to audiences worldwide.
“We’ve dipped into our unique archives to make all-new shows, including historic race wins narrated by the guys who made history,” says Burks. “Of course, we’ll also have a ton of original programming that touches all segments of current motorcycle culture. I’ve brought a team of professionals on board, and together we will chase my goal of feeding your riding passion through XcelerateTV.”
