    How about a new thread for this year?

    A race worth watching.
    A soap opera waiting to unfold.
    Quips (and goofs) from the guys behind the microphones.
    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    Mythical climbs

    Not exactly a synonym for legendary or epic.

    Exciting finish today.
    Glad to say that DH's solution to watching the Tour without cable has worked.

    What's the solution? (I don't have cable).

    Got a subscription for the Tour from ITunes. We bought an Apple TV device, so we can "project" it from the I Pad to the TV. This was my ultimatum for giving up cable (as well as being to watch HGTV, because I'm addicted to several of their shows).

    I am very curious. Is it the NBC app? Does it have a video archive, so you can watch the stage whenever you have time?

    No that's not right come to think of it. That was Jens. My bad.

    How is the app for Apple products? We bought the package for the computer last year and haven't decided what to do- we're on vacation and traveling now, so we can watch in real time on tv or online with Steephill TV, but once we get home and go back to work, we need a delayed option and aren't sure whether to go with the mobile app or getting the computer package from NBC..

    I used the mobile app (NBC TDF All Access) last year and it worked great. you could watch live or on demand. It gives you a menu of all the completed stages to date, and you can choose whichever one you want to watch, whenever you want.

    This year I bought the online package so I could watch on my bigger Mac screen and that's working well too. But to be honest, I forgot that could stream from my iPad to Apple TV and see it on an actual TV screen - I should've stuck with the app, it's much cheaper!

    What happened to Phil and Paul and the predictions in the pre-race show this year? Bah humbug NBC!

    Those predictions were my favorite part...watching the recap show now so perhaps they still have them in the early morning, but I doubt it. We're two hours behind EDT in Belize so I will have to watch in the evenings.
