What's the best (free) Online site -- from CANADA -- for following the Tour 2010?

This is basically for Canadian Forum watchers (but maybe some others have found unblocked international sites they can recommend.)

I don't have the tour on any of the channels on my TV.

So, I am trying to follow live online. but have been frustrated by the popup ads, the foreign language commentary (I can handle French as well as English but not Dutch or UKranian). Many of the sites are blocked outside of their home countries. Versus wants $30 to watch....

Who's watching it where?
(and even just a live audio feed would be fine - I used to listen to the tour live on the radio in France all the time. It was as good as video. INdeed I would even take French or English play-by-play over non-E/F video.)

Duh, read the existing posts first.

This link was posted in another thread, and this "Steve" seems to have done the legwork already. I'll test it out tomorrow.

and then all the feeds today (Tuesday 13th) seem to be busted, shutdown, or useless (they freeze up after a few minutes and require a refresh which brings a new 30sec ad....)

It is true. The free feeds are truly bad this year.

the only Eurosport feed I can make work today is channelsurfing.net
And it is working better actually (and maybe not surprisingly) on my wired connection than via wifi (the wifi feed was freezing up.)
but the ad banner is still annoying as anything.
