Omloop on GCN+?

On Friday the commentators said USA can watch Omloop on GCN+, but it wonít load for me.

Sounds like bait & switch. Anyone know?

Iíve got the sane problem, it wonít load live stream. My guess is once the race is over and footage has been processed itíll post up as a rewatch.

I believe that the presenters said that we can pay for a subscription to see live coverage and that post-race coverage will still be available without subscription.

I suspect that is accurate. Maybe I heard what I wanted to hear yesterday, but I could have sworn they said they had full coverage.

Oh well, they should have full live coverage of KBK tomorrow. Or else...

I have a subscription to GCN+, and I could not watch live either. Note the following from the schedule list for USA:

27 February 2021: Omloop het Nieuwsblad (Highlights)
I hope we still get to watch at least the replay. (Which also doesn't currently load for me.)

During the replay broadcast for the last stage of the UAE tour, the announcers did mention Omloop Live would not be available in North America.

FWIW for $25 a year, the GCN+ is a good deal. Or at least it should be a good deal if the coverage keeps coming.

Noticed that even the VPN doesnít work on website or app. Watched on TIZ cycling instead.

Yeah, and GCN is better positioned to offer what cycling fans want than OLN or NBCSports or any of the other failed subscription services.

Signed up today and watched KBK, but Omloop replay won't load... looks like a USA licensing problem.
