OLN is only carrying the live coverage this year, no repeats, no evening show. It seems like they're just trying to get through the Tour as cheaply as possibly. It starts in less than a week and yet there's no information on their website, no press release outlining their coverage. And don't get me started about their unwillingness, or inability, to secure some kind of arrangement with their Rogers' big brother, Sportsnet, to give us the HD feed VERSUS viewers have been enjoying for two years. Major sporting events in square-screen SD is soooo 2004.
OLN is a joke, especially since they were acquired by Rogers.
The Tour in HD would be a nice fit for TSN2-HD, or maybe even Bold-HD. As would Versus' Cyclism Sundays, another program which OLN refuses to pick up to build the audience for cycle races.
Better yet, how about a North American version of Eurosport, to bring us coverage of all those sports that don't necessarily involve a stick and ball.
