Is anyone taping Paris-Nice on OLN?

I don't want to subborn piracy, but things are desperate. OLN Canada shows almost no cycling, and Paris-Nice is looking like a good race. Does anyone here get OLN, and would you be willing to tape the 2-hr presentation on OLN on Monday monring? I will, of course, pay for the tape and postage.

Same for Paris-Roubaix next month, by the way... I hope someone can help. This is what I'm reduced to by our idiot broadcasters. BTW, if there are any Euros out there who would be able to help, I would be just as happy to hear from you.

I could hook you up if needed. I don't have OLN but I recently found out that a friend of mine DOES get it. I have already primed them for some taping in the near future, so I could get it done for you. OLN seems to be the only station that gets any "good" sports on...LOL

I am disappointed. Our cable company keeps taking away stations and trying to force us to go to digital cable at about $100 a month. Redicilious. I want OLN. OLN is only on digital.
From what I hear you can only get OLN on satellite dish if you get the maximum amount of stations for about $80. To get the good stuff you must pay.
ps. I check on Paris-Nice on CycleingNews.com daily.

Anyone else who's willing to send some tapes our way, we're more than interested. Paris roubix is coming up and unless the morons at OLN canada wake up, we'll be stuck with yet more lumberjack contests.

I am so sick of being held hostage by (*&^&%^ canadian networks; we get HBO series like two years later.
