Watch tour online?

Cycling.tv and universal sports will not carry the tour online. Does anyone know where full live coverage etc. can be watched online?

That's an affirmative on VS. They begin covering the TdF on Saturday, July 4th, at 9:30AM, preceeded by an hour-long special on "Lance Armstrong: The Comeback Story".

Of course, it conflicts with the Women's Final at Wimbledon (and the Men's Final, on Sunday)...

Online. Versus.com only has clips and doesn't stream live as far as I know.

Ok, Versus has no streaming. But does anyone know of a site which shows the TdeF live -- regardless of language....

There will be streaming here ,
http://myp2p.eu/competition.php?comp...ipline=cycling

Different languages but just try the links as they appear on the day to find the best for you

Also try here just after the stage has started

http://www.filmon.com has a bunch of UK channels, including Eurosport, with Sean Kelly and some other guy commentating. They may also have ITV4, who also broadcast the tour and is commentated by Liggett and Sherwin.

The quality is much better than justintv.

Versus now has an option to purchase their live streaming for $35 for the entire race or 2.95 per stage. No replays available.

Thanks. This is a lot better than the other options I've seen. Awesome SD quality with Phil and Paul.

Here's my config: IE 6 under WinXP.

Did you do the usual and restart IE altogether?

I remember that I had to do a CRTL-F5 a couple of times to get it going again.

So Justin TV gets turned of,
i give $35 to Versus to watch the Tour Live and the login won't work

Can I say that the people at Versus are fukcing arsseholes?

They are. They take your money and leave you stranded. Great.

Yeah, I know. My wife kept making me change channels during commercials. Those poor women sounded like they were being stabbed.

Right now there's some breakup/pixelated picture but that was a problem even when I had Versus thru the dish (now canceled).

Psychological stabbing... and they're sisters too.
