They weren't available on Direct TV when I was researching a couple years ago-only DISH network could provide all 3 Grand Tours during the season- albeit by picking up RAI and TVE via premium foriegn language packages at what works out to be approx US$25-$30 or so a pop.francois said:What's that?? Is that on DirecTV too? Is it in english?
Sporza will air the Tour of Belgium for sure, I'll just have to fall asleep listening to the mumblings of the Eurosport idiots during those days. Screw the Tour of Belgium, bloody mickey mouse race that it is.botto said:pleased to say that i'll not have to pay cash money to watch it on my computer, and have to listen to paul & phil butcher the names of 97% of the peloton.
that said i'll probably only pay attention during the hilly/mountain stages that are suppposed to be decisive. i get kind of bored with the Giro (although that obviously wasn't the case last year ).
At least I won't have to put up with having to watch the Tour of Belgium coverage, then getting the last 20-30 minutes of the Giro, like i did in the past
Same here. Started with just getting RAI for the Giro, then started it earlier the next year for Milano-San Remo, and this year just left it on the whole time. Every show has some hot chick on it so it beats most of the other things on TV anyway. TVEI on Dishnetwork comes with the Latino Playboy for free too so financially it's a bargain.caterham said:I subscribe to DISH network for the ability to get daily television coverage of the Giro on RAI ( ch600 ) and the Vuelta on TVEI in the fall ( requires a Spanish channel package).
Oh I need the commentary.goloso said:Hey Francois,
Its in Italian. I can speak a little Italian so as long as they are talking about the race (or food) I can understand what is going on. You really dont *need* to understand anything. Just the volume and cadence of the announcers is enough to get the message.
I will tape the stages. If you want to borrow any of them (peticularly the big climbing stages) let me know and I will pass them on to Gregg.
Aren't there more interesting things to do on a honeymoontelecaster said:I'll be honeymooning in Italy during the last week so I plan on catching one of the stages live. I'm pretty stoked!
I thought there was no more Tor of Belgium (and no more Tour of Luxmebourg, and no more Tour de Nederland) and now only one Mickey Mouse race: the Benelux Tourrogger said:Sporza will air the Tour of Belgium for sure, I'll just have to fall asleep listening to the mumblings of the Eurosport idiots during those days.
