There are lots of italian channels on there... (as well as many other countries) If I only knew what channels carried races in what countries, it could be pretty cool...

I tried to use that site but as you said, I can't figure out who would be carrying races either.

It would be wonderful if some Italian and French speaking individual could browse these stations schedules and tell us when they have coverage.

e.g. Germany, but there is no livestream for Eurosport. They show all the races, though.

I've used it to watch other European channels, but not bike races, since I came into that channel sometime in November. It's all good.

Well, I guess as our resident Italian speaker, I'll give it a crack.

So far none of the RAI channels have anything listed as far as cycling-only programs for this week. There are nightly sports shows and such, but I didn't see anything dedicated to any particular race. The RAI Sport channel has it's own streaming thread on the page, but there is no listing that I could find for what will be showing on it. If I can find it though, I'll be sure to give a translation. There does look to be plenty of calcio/soccer/football on if anyone is interested in that.

Not true. I've gotten it running (with some fuss) at home. I run Gentoo and KDE, and kmplayer is your friend. Very nice plugin capability with Konqueror.

mplayerplug-in. kmplayer is just a KDE frontend for mplayer and accomplishes a lot of what mplayerplug-in does within the KDE environment. Whatever you can view in mplayer, you should be able to view in your browser with mplayerplug-in. Haven't tinkered with it much, but this is what folks will probably use with Mozilla to view streaming content on the 'net. Good luck.

Just an update. It looks like the Giro will be on daily on Rai Tre starting anytime from 11 to 12:30 Italian time. I'm in the process of looking to see if they have a streaming version online.

Actually...I think this might be what we're looking for.

All I get is little girl gymnastics. IS that just because that is what they are currently broadcasting? If I tune in at 11 Italian time, will I see the Giro? What is 11 Italian time here in the states? So many questions..

LOL. Yeah, that's RAI Sport, and it's just playing whatever is on at the time. I'm not exactly sure that it will be on there, but I'm pretty confident. 11 AM Italian time is 6 AM Eastern (Daylight Savings) Time.

Here is the RAI Tre schedule for the next nine days, which I'm assuming translates to the RAI Sport times for the week. The times are all EDT.

May 3-6
8:10 Rai Sport-Storia del Giro d'Italia (History of the Giro d'Italia - 50 minutes)

May 7
6:30 Rai Sport Reggio Calabria. Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Si gira (30 minutes)
13:00 Reggio Calabria. Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Cronoprologo (55 minutes)
15:05 Rai Sport Reggio Calabria. Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia TGiro (20 minutes)
20:05 Rai Sport Reggio Calabria. Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Giro notte (30 minutes)

May 8
7:40 Rai Sport Reggio Calabria Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Si Gira (50 minutes)
9:30 Tropea Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia 1^tappa: Reggio Calabria - Tropea (3 hours)
15:00 Rai Sport Tropea Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia T Giro (15 minutes)
20:30 Rai Sport Tropea Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Giro notte (30 minutes)

May 9
7:25 Rai Sport Catanzaro Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Si gira (20 minutes)
10:10 Rai Sport Santa Maria del Cedro Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia TGiro (50 minutes)
15:00 Rai Sport Santa Maria del Cedro Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia TGiro (20 minutes recap)
19:50 Rai Sport Santa Maria del Cedro Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Giro notte (30 minutes)

May 10
7:25 Rai Sport Diamante Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Si gira (20 minutes)
10:10 Giffoni Vallepiana Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia 3^tappa: Diamante - Giffoni Vallepiana (50 minutes)
15:00 Rai Sport Giffoni Vallepiana Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia TGiro (20 minutes)
19:50 Rai Sport Giffoni Vallepiana Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Giro notte (30 minutes)

May 11
7:25 Rai Sport Giffoni Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Si gira (30 minutes)
10:10 Frosinone Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia 4^tappa: Giffoni-Frosinone (50 minutes)
15:00 Rai Sport Frosinone Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia TGiro (15 minutes)
19:55 Rai Sport Frosinone Ciclismo: 88* Giro d'Italia Giro notte (30 minutes)

I'll list more after I figure out if it corresponds to the stream or not. I'm hoping that the RAI Sport channel will show the entire stages, instead of the beginning hour or so, and then the finish for an hour or so as it listed on the guide for RAI Tre. If that's the case, then it will run from the 2nd listed time each day to the end of the 3rd. I'll guess we'll have to keep our fingers crossed. I am confident that the recaps of the Giro will be shown as listed on the stream.

Thanks for all of this useful information.
I'm not hooked into any TV but my house is hooked into broadband.
I'll have to give this a try.

Keep up the useful info

well I just watched a bit of Italy vs Turkey (football) so it
works with Mozilla with no problems, didn't need no plugins.
weird tho, brought up Windows media player and my default is Realplayer.
Hmmmm.
Now All I need to do is mute it (no italian here) run some tunes concurrently
and pretend I'm busy here at work!
