Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Seems they are just changing the media platform in non euro markets. I subscribe to Discovery so will likely be able to watch the videos there. I wasn't very happy to pay for the + subscription only to find out that races I wanted to watch were unavailable in my market area though I paid.

There is a VPN for that which everyone should be using regardless.
I myself was more than happy to pay for the subsciption to get ALL the racing and excellent videos to watch at anytime NOT just live.
I wonder where they will go with this.

Yeah the D+ on-demand library is pretty poor. Even just navigating it.

I guess there just aren’t enough of us prepared to pay to make a viable specialist offering.

I have often thought about subscribing to this service but decided to get a.VPN instead.

How does that help?

The platform is changing in Europe too by the way. All moving to D+ here too.

You can stream stuff from all around the world without being blocked by your country's restrictions. It applies not only to cycling, but to all sports. And, as other said, everyone should be having a VPN for security reasons.

Cycling events are free in most places around the world, but it can be a PITA in North America, especially here in Canada where we need to pay for a lot of stuff.

Not having their documentaries to watch on the trainer will be a loss too.
