You probably won't get any play-by-play though. Just video and some background noise from the vehicles.

If they don't have English commentary, just head over to RAI and listen to the Eyetie's.

Fantastic news, thanks for the update. I was toying with the idea of calling my cable company to subscribe to RAI for three weeks.

There are different RAI channels for outside Italy. I'm not sure the North American one will show the Giro.

It has in 2007 and 2008. My DishNetwork guide still doesn't show the Giro as being televised this year on RAI though, except for the presentation tomorrow (12:00pm our time).

In past years they had Milano-San Remo too, but it wasn't shown this year either.

This will be cool as I have my computer hooked up to play on my plasma tv. Anyone else having trouble viewing the videos? I have downloaded and run all the appropriate items required by the universal sports website and still can't get any video to play. On screen I get audio but no video. When I download into real player I get both audio and video. I'm running Windows Vista 64 bit and Firefox.

edit - works fine on IE explorer. I'll watch it there.

If so I hope it's a different pair than the guys that commentated the Tour of the Basque, they were terrible.

Yes!

To those guys whose cable service don't carry, here it's available as a free OTR digital channel, all you need is an antenna and digital tuner.

Not available in all cities over the air, but in most.

Universal will broadcast the Giro live everyday online without commentary. Then it will broadcast each stage on its cable channel at noon EST with commentary from Todd Gogulski and Steve Schlanger. Scott Ogle will be on the ground for Universal in Italy. The TV coverage will then repeat from 9-11 p.m. and 11 p.m.-1 a.m. EST.
