Wheeler Dealers: Trading Up - Velocity (TV network) - Netflix
Velocity is an American cable and satellite television network. Owned by Motor Trend Group, a venture of Discovery Inc. and Source Interlink, Velocity primarily broadcasts automotive-themed programming and motorsports events, and is officially targeted towards an “upscale male” audience. It was originally founded in 2002 as Discovery HD Theater (later HD Theater), the first 24/7 high definition basic cable network. It featured high-definition programming from its sister channels (including Discovery Channel), as well as other original programs designed to showcase the high-definition format. As its original purpose grew redundant after the introduction of high-definition simulcasts for Discovery's networks, it re-launched in 2011 as Velocity. The channel will re-brand as Motor Trend Network later in 2018, as a brand extension of the automotive magazine Motor Trend. As of February 2015, approximately 62.3 million American households (53.5% of households with television) receive Velocity.
