Velocity is rebranding as MotorTrend Network, a fully HD television channel that unites MotorTrend's nearly 70-year history as the leading, information-based automotive media brand with Velocity's position as the #1 TV channel for the very best entertaining, engaging and information rich automotive programming. Available in 73 million homes nationwide, MotorTrend Network, combined with the MotorTrend App and MotorTrend.com, forms an unparalleled 360-degree content offering for automotive fans and advertisers.

With the network, the MotorTrend App and MotorTrend.com, we're going to provide deeper, richer, more engaging experiences for consumers on any device, anytime."
