Giro options for USA viewers?

Started NBC Gold just after the 2017 TDF and assumed I'd be getting all the Grand Tours. Just found out a few days ago how naive that thinking was.

I have found that Fubo.tv covers it and maybe that is somewhat attractive as they claim you can cancel anytime. Though one normal month is more than NBC Gold was for the July 2017 to end of June 2018 period they base their subscription on. Might be more this next term that is coming up. I don't think they've published their price for next season, but maybe I should have checked before making this statement.

Besides Fubo.tv does anyone know of other options to see the coverage whether live video or replay in the USA?

In 2016 I watched the Giro on BeIN but that wasn't an option in 2017 so I watched it on YouTube. It was usually from Eurosport, I believe, and most days there was an hour (maybe more) covered. I guess technically YouTube isn't supposed to air these races (that's what my wife says) but they do.
I also watched this year's Tour of the Algarve, Tour of Andalucia, Tirenno - Adriatico, and some of the Italian and Belgian one day races.
Occasionally you won't be able to view from an English language channel but I'll take what I can get.
I've also been looking into Fubo and might do the 7 day free trial for the Tour de Romandie later this month.

I'm thinking that Fubo.tv might be the best way to go too. I haven't been back to look at the more intimate details of Fubo. I wonder if its live streaming only or if they have replays too. And if they do have replays, how long do they hold. As well need to assure myself the "cancel anytime" policy has any fine print conditions that have to be met before it can really be canceled.

Seems like when I was over there I saw something about being able to try it out and watch the 2017 Giro. But that may have been an out of date page as I went there through an older Velonews link than what I posted.

The Fubo site says you can watch "on demand".

Great.... if I would quit spending so much time over here at BF, maybe I'd have time to go to their site and read for myself. Might even be able to go riding too!

I did fubo on a discount code last year- warning- you can only do 3 recordings, so if you don't have time to watch every day or 2 you will run into issues... otherwise it worked.. and I did cancel after the one month.. not sure what I'll do this year- we're travelling during part of the race...

Here is another option for viewing the Giro in the USA and Canada too.

FloBikes to offer less-expensive broadcast of Giro, other events | VeloNews.com

https://www.flobikes.com/signup?utm_..._content=house

Though the second link is to the sign up page for flobikes, you don't have to sign-up. It is the only page I found on their site that gives any of the initial information someone would want to know. Like a lot of other sites, they don't tell you a lot. Not sure why that is.

Is it possible to watch from a smart TV and is it available on demand (I can't watch most of these races live)?

FAQ - FloSports

Here it says most events are archived so you can watch later.

side topic: I have watched almost all of the spring races on either youtube, tiz-cycling, steephill or some other stream. We have 2 Samsung smart TV's and they have a very hard time picking up and streaming the feed. Now I have a new Dell laptop that picks up and doesn't drop the feed at all. I almost always resort to watching on my Laptop. So the question is: Does the computer work differently the the smart TV for streaming this feed? Maybe a better processor or something? I am just wandering as I thought either device would be able to stream the same. Kind of dissapointed in my smart tv's for this reason...
