Check the TDF thread in the roadbiking forum. Nam is capturing the coverage from OLN and posting it online.

If letour is paying, do you really think that they will let anyone stream it live for free?

so typical, you want it english, not french, you got it, then you want it free, not paid, you got it. But now you want it live, what's next? HDTV?

The vids are posted usually about 2-3 hours after race, and if I have the technology to upload instantly. You'll have it live.

Before OLN, I used to go to www.eurosport.com and get the written coverage live. I thought you could at least hear the coverage live on letour.com, but maybe that was in the past, because I used to listen to it live on the internet before the days of OLN on Koffee's cable lineup.

I want to watch euro 2004 so bad that I wish anyone could do what I'm doing right now, even a day later. I don't care.

The price for the final Poturgal and Greece is outrageous, $24.95. Even with the reply on channel 613 on direct TV I have to pay another $50/month.

Nothing is free nowadays, but there are still many people expect everything to be free for nothing.

i found this link on another bboard:

http://tour.tv2.dk/live/

looks like the live feed link is near the bottom, but i can't read it. i can't get it to work... keeps telling me i need to download windows media player, but i'm on a mac and these things are often screwy for me...

can anyone confirm that this is/is not a live stream? can you actually post the url of the stream, if it is? that way i can avoid the detection script that is keeping me from it. thanks!
