2008 Tour de France TV coverage

I discovered, much to my dismay, that Star Choice will not be offering 2008 Tour de France coverage this July. They do not offer the Versus Channel.

Cycling TV apparently will not cover the Tour either.

What's a keen cycling fan to do. Will we have withdrawal symptoms without Phil Leggitt, Paul Sherwin and Bob Roll.

Anybody know how a Canadian can get the Tour? Seriously.

How about a write-in campaign to Star Choice (or CRTC)?

Over here in Australia we are shown every leg live on free to air TV,although it will be at 2 A.M..The same channel also shows a half our highlights at six in the evening.
Cheers,Tony.
