My wife just texted me at work that the Giro coverage on Bein Sports is in Spanish. One or two races here and there in Spanish, no big deal. Twenty two days in a row? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This will be the first in I dont know how many Giros that there will effectively be no Noth American coverage. Thanks NBC Sports , Universal Sports Network, and Bein Sport. At least on Universal Sport you used to be able to pay for delayed pay per view.
Got home and spent 45 minutes on the phone with Dish. They explained that Bien was not offered as an English language channel, Spanish only on channels on 871 and 873. Bummer. Started reviewing every channel I receive and discovered Bien on 392. Guess what. English. And a Giro highlight show. With the most beautiful HD I have ever seen coming out of Italy. So hopefully it will play out in English for the rest off the best grand tour of the year. Nice job Bien Sport.
