What does coverage and support of the TdF and other Grand Tours cost?

I am digging watching the TdF this year, online, live. However, I was struck by a question. What can it possibly cost to support and broadcast such an event. I mean the team cars are everywhere, the camera angles are legion and the motorcycles flit around like mad.

I'm just curious, not that my little peabrain can fathom the amount of money needed. I'm guessing that this little event is quite a boost to the French economy.
