24 New Programs Now Available in Gran Turismo TV

September 1st, 2011 by Jordan Greer

    What’s crazy is those watching on YouTube are basically stealing. 2.00 an episode is pretty cheap compared to the 15 dollars an Option DVD cost and personally I’d like to see Drifting grow so I don’t mind paying. The rest of you thieves are a bunch of Morons.

    I would love to buy all the SuperGT videos, but since they’re only valid for a year, thats never gonna happen.

      P.S. You can purchase many of those old DVD’s for 10 bucks give or take from jdmoption.com

  4. Sep. 3, 6:34pm

    I would buy all if they where cheaper. Now i buy zero. Overpriced simply put

  5. Sep. 3, 12:14pm

    None of the videos are showing up in my GT TV, weird.

  6. Sep. 3, 9:18am

    They should put up some v8 super cars videos

  7. Sep. 2, 10:20pm

    The D1 Gran Prix videos are okay. But I’m more interested in the Super GT and Best Motoring videos. The Best Motoring videos are informative and the review not on Japanese cars but Europeans as well. Yes, the videos are a bit old, but Best Motoring is, I believe, on of the best video magazines. Option focuses on D1 because they’re sponsoring it. Drifting is a part of the game as well, and there are a whole lot of rooms online. I agree that Gran Turismo tv should include some other forms of motorsport as well, but I’m glad they have the Super GT races. I just wish they put up more recent vids of the series.

  8. Sep. 2, 9:01pm

    What is the point of drifting? Anybody can throw a car sideways, GT5 needs to cut the crap with all this japanese crap, I mean come on, when can we have a great fun American made racing game?

  9. Sep. 2, 3:20pm

    Maybe they think we are still in 2009. :-P

  10. Sep. 2, 12:05pm

    Great, more GTR stuff and a bunch of people skidding. Maybe some DTM videos or decent motorsport vids instead of silly drifting rubbish and I’d spend some money.

  11. Sep. 2, 10:13am

    And most people are right saying that you can view Volumes of BM and BMI on YouTube. I’m not complaining, just agreeing with the majority.

  12. Sep. 2, 9:32am

    Speaking of BM I wish they’d model the Touge track.

  13. Sep. 2, 7:37am

    My issue is that this is all old outdated stuff. It’s not crap it’s just its relevance is pretty much zero.

  14. Sep. 2, 12:18am

    it’d be nice if they put something on there that wasn’t from 4 years ago

    • Sep. 2, 3:58am

      My thoughts exactly. And they want you to pay for it as well. No thanks.

  15. Sep. 1, 11:22pm

    I bought a few before.. they were good but way to much $$. They should charge $0.50 an episode and they would make more $$ because 10 times as many people would purchase them. At the current prices it’s a big fat rip-off.

  16. Sep. 1, 10:08pm

    If they were a little cheaper I might do it.

  17. Sep. 1, 9:14pm

    They should just give the GT Academy free coverage with GT/TV. Come on PD don’t you want to promote your own show for free. It would probably be good for marketing your game.

  18. Sep. 1, 8:32pm

    I’ll give it a miss, I’m not paying to view, youtube will do just fine!

  19. Sep. 1, 7:37pm

    To those who say they’re not paying for it:
    What if that’s where there getting some money to make those little premiums and tracks you guys want oh so badly? :)

  20. Sep. 1, 7:04pm

    You pay for them and are able to watch them for a year. Not a lot of people are thrilled about these videos on Gran Turismo TV but some of them are really good.

  21. Sep. 1, 6:50pm

    Once again I thought it was DLC news, but no :(

  22. Sep. 1, 6:35pm

    Pass. Bad enough to have to pay for most of this at all, but never for what theyre charging. Maybe if the prices were 15-20% of what they are….

  23. Sep. 1, 6:24pm
    scotty p


  24. Sep. 1, 6:09pm

    You forgot to give credit to the GT5 Photomode image author… :-D

  25. Sep. 1, 5:57pm

    aww crap, just when I trashed my TV! (I cancelled cable TV, it was giving me full retard cancer.)

  26. Sep. 1, 5:20pm

    nope. not pay-per-view. nope

  27. Sep. 1, 5:08pm

    Pay-per-view??? I think I’ll pass…

  28. Sep. 1, 4:34pm

    Jordan is working crazy the last days, with all those news ;D

  29. Sep. 1, 4:14pm

    I am guessing that there is still nothing recent on GT TV.

  30. Sep. 1, 4:11pm


  31. Sep. 1, 4:10pm

    Really? they waste their time on this rather than addressing patches that work properly & the ever so elusive DLC content?

    • Sep. 1, 6:53pm


  32. Sep. 1, 3:55pm

    I’ll pass.

      Well I do know that Tsuchiya had to be frustrated when they get to American D1 the judges got constantly accused of playing favorites to the Japanese drivers and in Particular to those Drivers Tsuchiya liked personally. It got so Bad that at one event at Irwindale, After what was perceived a bad call, the Fans started throwing paper and stuff out the stands! I know one year Vaughn Gitten beat out a Japanese driver clearly and yet still didn’t win. The Next Year Vaughn was the First U.S. driver to win a D1 event.

  33. Sep. 1, 3:55pm

    WTFnews you can watch that for free on youtuubeblows channel, he has over 500 videos of BM, D1 and Video Option

    • Sep. 1, 4:43pm

      Yea, there was another dude name StarQuestSoul but his account got suspended due to copyright. He had most of my favorite videos including the body work on Keiichi’s TRD Street 20v BT AE86 Trueno

    • Sep. 1, 6:08pm

      You should really check out youtuubeblows channel, it’s like the best YT channel for all that cool Japanese stuff.

    • Sep. 1, 7:19pm

      Yeah I know that channel. I watch most of the BMI/HVI stuff rather then Video Option and D1. Y’know Tsuchiya and Inada made a new drift competition called Drift Muscle?

    • Sep. 1, 8:40pm

      I knew that Tsuchiya left D1 because he didn’t agree with some things, but I didn’t know that him and Dai founded a new Drift Competition :O

  34. Sep. 1, 3:53pm

    i think i will download car soccer

  35. Sep. 1, 3:51pm

    Sick Picture! Drift! ER34 VS B324R! Finally, Video Option, D1GP and Best Motoring!

  36. Sep. 1, 3:47pm

    Yeah I looked at these earlier, at £2 something an episode it would cost you a fortune to buy them all.

  37. Sep. 1, 3:43pm

    Nope thank you I have a thing called Youtube, if these programs were cheaper I would buy them.

    • Sep. 2, 4:07pm

      Same here, those prices are absurd for those videos. And they’re pretty old too. No thanks PD.

    Thats always welcome, to bad all those programs are fairly short and cost a lot to purchase and you can only keep them for a year… oh well. I’ll download the SEMA video though, which car won last year?

    • Sep. 2, 8:25am

      Problem is those are old episodes.

      I watched them all where i had Gran Turismo PROLOGUE…..

      Come one i want watch new episodes ! in HD.

    • Sep. 4, 7:45am

      All of these videos can be watched on YouTube channels: GTchannel(HQ) and youtuubeblows (HD).
