I don't get Universal = No Giro

Is there a recommended web sight I can watch it on?

steephill.tv and cyclingfans.com have many choices to watch it online. If one link does not work try another.

Giro + Universal Sports = $20
Steephill and cyclingfans = $0
So far I have liked the Eurosport channel with Sean Kelly

British Eurosport coverage of the Giro Stages 1 & 2 have been covered by Harmon and Scottish guy (I've forgotten his name). Sean Kelly starts tomorrow for stage 3.

WTF is it with Universal that they make it impossible to view any of their clips without knowing who won? Even if you go in via cyclingfans, which does NOT spoil things, Universal will have a freeze frame at the start of the clip, showing the winner. Gimme a break! Who the F is making these decisions!?!?

I just realized this morning that simply by attaching a Digital TV antenna (which I already have) to the TV, that I can get Universal Sports. Channel 4.3 in my area. Doh!
