Live Feed

Can someone provide me with a live feed (U.S.) that will allow me to watch the TDF today, and everyday? I will watch in Slovenian, Russian, French, or any other language, as long as the feed is live.

If you advise me to "just check out steephill.tv," you obviously don't know how they sold out yesterday under pressure. Every region is now restricted, and there are no more Eurosport links.

My cable provider offers me NBCSports but only in a package that is $55 a month higher than my current one.

Please help.!!!!

Same here. This is the first time that all sites have been effectively blocked. I just want to watch a little here and there.

I tried setting a proxy so that it looked like my computer was in another country, but that did not work. Perhaps someone else can get this to work:

You can stream it online through NBCSports for a onetime fee of $29.99. I've never done it, but lot's of folks on here have/do. Sounds better than "upgrading" your cable package for three weeks.

Well, we all know we can pay more money to get the live feed, but yes, I was hoping to just wake up early and watch steephill.tv streams.
I've paid for it every other year and was hoping not to, but looks like its all shut down.

Does anyone know if, due to the restrictions, the torrents will be shut down as well? Therefore throttling off the other avenue?

Here's a great idea, restrict all watchers to paying high prices to watch the event, then when the event starts release all the doping charges and accusations... way to try and kill the Tour. There are very few avenues to watching the tour and I sure wont purchase a full cable sub just to get one event, no matter how much I like it.

For sure, the AT&T vampire deserves no more dosh from me. Is the NBCSports stream reliable in the eastern US? Full TDF coverage?

Cyclingtorrents is usually good, but there's a delay while you wait for someone to upload after the finish.

What about www.tourdefrancelive.net is that legit? Seems like you have to jump through some hoops to be able to watch.

I noticed today in the Android Play Store that there's an NBCSports app for $14.99 that gives you live streaming. Search for Tour de France, it's not the top one but it's up there in the top few. I was on a tablet so maybe it's device sensitive. I did NOT pull the trigger on the app, as I'm watching DVR stuff via my Slingbox.

I have tried setting up a UK-based IP to grab Eurosport streaming. To my dismay, it was only a pay package. It was Giro time when I did it and I don't recall how much, though it was cheap. No idea what the cost for the Tour is, I wouldn't expect that would be free. However, that UK IP does let you get some of the UK- and Europe-restricted highlights that steephill posts.

I was very fond of the Giro's posting of the race for replay viewing. Not finding the same love from ASO. And I'm disappointed that the Verizon FIOS On Demand for NBC Sports has only a brief post race recap, not a replay of the coverage. DVR it is, PITA.

I got an android device with HDMI out and hooked it up to the TV and it looks pretty good. The NBC TDF android app is only $14.99 and works well for live streaming but there is no replay so you got to get up at the crack of dawn on the US west coast. It says it is restricted to only US viewers. There is a iOS app as well.

I watched it today at

http://www.hahabar.com/20130627/v-cy....12577614.html

(Thanks "On the Path). That was a good quality feed, and it was lost only once.

The exact links change from day to day, so I recommend googling something like:

"hahabar.com tour de france"

to find the correct link for the day.

I went through cyclingfans.com and tried their links, which eventually sent me to the hahabar site. Just barely caught the end of the Radio Shack team coming in.

The top team finished 25 KM in under 26 minutes - that's an average of almost 35 MPH on that dead flat course!

I have been using this site every day and it is free. It is the NBC site but it ids free. You will see several links near the top of the page. Open one and the race will be in a box,window with a Add on top of the picture. DO NOT TRY and get rid of the add. Leave it there and just hit the open to full screen and the add will be gone. They do the entire race and repeat it again. No drop outs.
