Ride Channel, WTF
« on: February 12, 2014, 06:30:20 AM »
What's with the Ride Channel...
no more Weekend Buzz? No more Free Lunches?
Fully Torqued ending, Skateline gone to Thrasher.
What's happening?

Maybe they are pulling a Tyler Bledsoe and they'll comeback with the same features and a FULL INTERVIEW WITH GINO, online parts from Heath, Pat Chanitta and Free Lunches with people that really care about their profession and love that is skateboarding...

They need to stop with the slo-mo section as well, can anyone actually sit through one of those ?? i end up fast forwarding to the end to see the trick at full speed.

It's all about money. Web content has become serious business, make no mistake - you publish your content where you'll be paid the most. I'm not sure where the RIDE Channel income comes from, but if it is purely from Youtube ads, then (for example) Thrasher can offer more (direct dealing with advertisers).

I like Ride Channel a lot. Didn't think much of it at first but became a nice competitor to even The Berrics. Too bad for letting certain shows go. I feel like those were more organic over then what they do at the Berrics. Just off the cuff interview styles anyways.

Thrasher still holds it down as the best thing on the web as far as skate videos go. Last year was awesome.

The ride channel was the reason I check the internet besides slap and the sex offender registry to see if my pic is up yet

I really digged the Weekend Buzz, some of the episodes were quite EPIC (Forrest Gump the retard, the Capaldi bros, Jerry Hsu & Loui B...)
Free Lunch too, the MJ episode was simply awesome, great stories.

But you're right, if the only RC income is Youtube, it's probably not paying much. But hey, birdman should have enough $$ to pay those dudes.

I like weekend buzz, SKATE, and free lunch, but everything else is your typical internet garbage (park footage, trick tips ,etc)

doesn't the birdman own ride channel?

I still remember stumbling upon 'free lunch' when it was on the 'shred or die' website.

Yes, Birdman owns Ride Channel. He should pump some more $$ into it.
Because as someone said before... park footage is boring!!

the ride channel was really great for a bit



but they have been blowing it for months now.

they had a really great mix of stuff that kids would like, and older heads.  it seems like they've dumbed it down in the last few months to mostly kid stuff (although i think the Almost things have been more entertaining than I'd like to admit without parenthesis)

True, the Almost segment's been good. Fully Torqued too.

I've seen a Free Lunch a couple weeks ago, maybe this one's not cancelled after all.
I don't see why Thrasher couldn't come up with similar shows (Free Lunch or Weekend Buzz).

I've read that Brink's got his own show, but no idea when it comes out and where.
It's not going to be Weekend Buzz though, more like regular interviews.

Less beer less fun? I mean, Forrest Gump's WB was a killer

They also stopped with the in focus videos a while back. Which is a bummer because they were really helpful.

In Focus is/was great. Seems like they covered all of the mayor aspects already and need to take time off to figure out what can they talk about next.
