I thought US and NBC Sports were the same network.

Smart choice to cover the Tour of Oman instead of Flanders
I wish they'd get their PC head out of their @$$ and cover the Giro and Flanders. Who wants to see the Tour of Oman?

I'd like to see it and the spring classics. Oman looks to have been the best competition so far this year, better than TDU.

http://cycling.tv/ Subscription based. Very good resolution. Has on demand section with races dating back to 2008. Don't think they are showing the grand tours, but a lot of the classics, world cup cyclocross, and some stage races. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday & Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne on Sunday.

I just subscribed and find locating on-demand replays a bit frustrating, as a lot of relatively recent races aren't yet posted. I know that's probably due to the fact that they don't have original rights, but it's not cheap. They really should do better.

No, they don't cover every race. If they are showing it live, it will normally be in the on demand section later that same day. I'm currently watching the 2009 Omloop.

And some of us can source HD coverage on the internet, and watch it from the comfort of our couch, on our televisions, at our leisure.

Isn't it fun being condescending?

Grrr. Glad to find this thread. Paris-Nice starts today!

Not so glad to find that my DTV package does not carry NBCSports now. It did for sure last summer! I may have known about the change but it's difficult to keep up. I've been able to catch some things on Universal Sports but it's SD, no match for the high quality video of say the TdF. Off to argue with DTV customer service...wish me luck!

Ah...just found it on the DirectTV site. It's now part of the Choice Extra or higher basic packages. It's not part of the Sports Pack that I subscribed to so as to get Universal Sports. So that would be $16/mo extra, which is not happening, at least not till the Tour.
