You Must Be a Registered User on Speed51 to Purchase & View Pay-Per-View Events

In order to purchase an individual Pay-Per-View event you must have a Speed51 account (unpaid / free).  This allows us to match your purchase with your account to allow viewing of the PPV event.

*Having a Speed51 account (unpaid / free) does not get you access to on-demand videos or certain live events; that is reserved for Speed51 Network Premium Subscribers (described below).

*A paid membership (Premium Subscriber) is not the same as purchasing an individual Pay-Per-View event.  PPVs are separate from Premium Membership.

1. What speed Internet connection do I need to have?
  • You CANNOT view any LIVE PPV broadcasts on Dial-Up. You need a Cable, DSL, Fiber, T1 or High Speed Satellite* connection.
  • Mobile (cell) connection needs a solid 4G LTE signal. Video will likely buffer on a 3G connection. Bouncing between 3G and 4G will cause video playback issues as well
  • We recommend a constant 15.0 Mbps download speed minimum connection on your end.
  • To test your home connection speed, please use one of the following sites: SpeedTest or SpeakEasy. Speed tests should be conducted multiple times to ensure an average reading.
For Satellite connections, please check with your provider as some services limit your daily bandwidth transfer, so streaming a broadcast for 4+ hours might exceed your limit.   2. What browsers and/or devices are supported for Live Video and On-Demand Highlights
  • Browsers: FirefoxChrome are preferred. Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer (IE 8 or higher) also acceptable. DVR function does not work in Safari.
  • Mobile: All iOS devices including iPhones and iPads + all Android devices including phones and tablets.
  • Not Formally Supported (but should work and has for most): Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Wii, Playstation and similar systems. Though we know of many who use these systems with success to watch our video, we do not offer support for these systems because their Flash plugins are not always the same as main browsers (Firefox, etc) or might be a few versions behind, thus not providing the most up-to-date experience possible. Use these systems at your own risk.
  • Smart TV: Most Smart TVs are NOT compatible with Speed51’s live streaming technology.
3. Why am I getting a 404 Error or Spinning Wheel with the 51 TV Logo Behind Them? This error code is displayed before the live broadcast begins. Once the stream begins at the advertised start time for each event, users will need to refresh the window to be able to view the live content.   4. What do I do if the video is choppy, not smooth or buffering? Since this is the Internet, choppy video can happen from time to time, but it should not stay that way for any long period of time. If it does please try the following.
  • Make sure you have enough down speed bandwidth with your home/office Internet provider. Minimum requirement is 5.0 Mbps (5000 Kbps).
  • If you are unsure of your Internet connection speed, please refer to Item 1 on this page for ways to test your speed.
  • If you are sure of what your Internet Speed package is with your provider, Test your speed anyway (see Item 1 on this page) and make sure your connection is still strong and that there is not any outages/interruptions with your local service provider.
  • WiFi connections can sometimes cause this as they are not as reliable as a hard line (Ethernet) connection and will experience more fluctuation in speed over a period of time.
  • Any other users/computers on the same Internet connection can draw speed away from your broadcast. Especially if another user is streaming video, downloading files or music, etc.
  • Try to Refresh/Reload the page by forcing it to go out to the server to bring the page back in (not cached). Do this by holding the Shift key and clicking the Refresh/Reload button in your browser.
  • Clear browser cache, close down your browser, re-launch the browser, re-login to Speed51.com and try the video again.
  • Try another browser. Internet Explorer (IE) has always been the browser that is behind and seems to need to most support, not just for live video, EVERYTHING. So we recommend Firefox and Chrome over IE, but with that said, our video has been tested in ALL browsers including iOS and Andriod devices.
  • Speed51.com and Speed51 TV are not liable for a subpar streaming experience due to slow internet speeds and/or user-end internet issues.
5. What computer requirements do I need?
  • Smooth video playback requires minimum Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent with latest version of Flash. Minimum 64mb video RAM suggested.
  • We recommend the latest version of Flash, but the video will stream fine on Flash version 10.5 or higher.
  • Full screen viewing provides a nice experience but require more computer processing power. Intel Dual Core or equivalent suggested for smooth full screen playback.
  • Non-Intel Macintosh Computers and First generation Netbook computers using Atom processors may have insufficient processing power to view even our Base Player smoothly.
You can download the latest Flash version here: Adobe Flash Player As with all computing tasks, eliminating unnecessary running apps will free up processing power and provide for a better viewing experience.   6. What do I do if my audio is not working?
  • 1st basic step, make sure your speakers are turned on and make sure the volume is up.
  • Test your computer’s audio by playing another audio file, like a music file.
  • Check/Test your sound by going to Start –> Control Panel –> Sounds and Audio Devices. Under the Volume tab make sure Mute is not checked and that the volume scroll is somewhere in the middle. Test a sound by clicking on the Sounds tab then choosing a sound file like Default Beep and click the play arrow below.
  • If you are connecting your computer to a TV, make sure you have the audio cables connected and run properly to the right inputs.
  • Clear browser cache and then close down your browser completely. Then re-launch the browser, re-login to Speed51.com and try the Live TV Events video page again and see if audio has now kicked in.
7. What if there is a rain-out for a Live PPV Broadcast? The PPV live broadcast is handled exactly as if you were at the track. If the track calls it a rain-out before it is an official race, we will offer all that paid a rain check for a make-up event (provided 51 TV is able to broadcast the make-up. Due to scheduling conflicts already in place, it may not always be possible for 51 TV to broadcast the make-up event.  51 is not liable for refunds or credits if user can not tune in on make-up date or if other conflicts prevent a make-up broadcast). If inclement weather comes and/or it is considered an official race by the track, then it is an official race with the PPV broadcast as well.  Also, if weather or other conditions force an alteration of the event schedule (two-day event made into a one-day event, for example), refunds or credits for the impacted days are not guaranteed and are at the discretion of 51 TV and/or event promoter.   8. What does a black box or “no playable sources” error mean? As of October 2015, a Flash update has caused some Android-based Samsung mobile device and tablet users to have difficulty viewing streaming software such as Speed51 TV’s. Please try to use the Default Android browser and then in the settings for the default browser, choose Desktop Mode.

Can I upgrade my basic membership to a Premium membership?

Yes. You may upgrade your basic membership to a premium membership at any time by logging in and joining the monthly or yearly program.

Do you offer one “all-inclusive” membership to everything you offer?

At this time, we do not offer a universal membership that includes every PPV event plus the on-demand library. The “crown jewel” events are still mostly PPV. There are many aspects that are involved with each track/event/series and that is where it stands currently.

Can I share a membership?

No, memberships are exclusive to the sole user.

How do I know if my internet is strong enough to stream the live events included with the memberships or for a single pay-per-view event?

We recommend a strong, direct connection of at least 15 mbps for the best quality. Wifi speeds can vary from minute to minute dependent on several factors. Internet providers sell you internet speeds best on the fastest possible speed for that service but that does not guarantee that you are getting those speeds at all times.

Always check your own, current, internet speeds before proceeding. You can do so for free at: www.speedtest.net or www.speedof.me.

Do you offer technical support with my smart TV or secondary device?

No, we do not offer direct technical support on secondary devices, but most people generally have good results using them.

Where can I get technical support?

Please email [email protected] for technical support. We have customer service representatives standing by during all live-streamed events to handle any issues that may arise.

I’m not sure if my membership purchase went through or if it is expired. Is there a way to check?

Please email [email protected] with any membership questions.

How do I cancel my membership?

Please email [email protected] with your username or email address associated with the account in need of cancelation.

Where can I find the on-demand video library once I subscribe?

Once you’re logged into your account, click the “videos” tab, or use this link: http://speed51.com/racing-videos/

Do you have a schedule of the live events that are included in the monthly/yearly membership?

We sure do! It can be found under the “live events” tab, or use this link: http://speed51.com/51livetv-events/

Where can I find the on-demand replay of an event?

Full-length replays are included with each PPV event ticket. They are not available for premium members unless you have purchased the individual event ticket. However, many of the live events have lengthy highlights which are included in the Network.

It says the username is in use. What should I do?

Chances are, at some point, the username or email address has already been used to create an account. If you’ve forgotten your password, please follow the ‘forgot password” link or email [email protected] if you need further assistance with your username or password. Please do not create a separate account as memberships and PPV “tickets” are attached to a single account. If you’re unsure whether or not you have one, email us! We’re happy to check for you.
