    Charter Cable and the Tour de France

    Does anyone have charter cable and know if there are any available channels to watch the tour? I am willing to get an additional package if needed. I already have the HD channels along with the movie channels, and I am surprised that I have not been able to find a single channel that shows the event.

    Is it just me who is blindly flipping channels? People with charter please chime in. I'm tired of trying to find different bars that show the event, I want to watch at home argghhh.

    And the reason this isn't posted in the Tour de France forum is that I want input from locals with my same provider,

    Thanks.

    I would also like to know. I did find tour highlights on versus (From the demand menu, go to sports and then to versus) but they don't update and it's just the same short clips I can find on the internet.

    I've got Charter and it's on Versus every morning, then the rebroadcast in the evenings. Never had any trouble.
    If ignorance is bliss, shouldn't you be happy?

    Glendale it's channels 159 and 410. Early morning 'live' coverage with repeats throughout the day.
    Check versus.com. Front page offers a search by zipcode.

    With Charter you have to get the sports package and have a digital box.

    The best coverage is live in the morning with Phil.

    So it's a specific premium channel, right? My "on demand" versus isn't the same?

    Anyone ride anywhere specific and watch the tour? I think it would be a fun idea.

    I've got Charter Basic and it's on channel 68 every morning and re-broadcasted allday long, no problem.
    Make mine a double!

    +1. I don't have a sports package, just the digital cable.

    It's channel 410 here in Pasadena. I'll just have to watch recaps on the internet each day.
