    Watching the 2013 TdF

    Here is the TV schedule for the US for Tour de France coverage.

    Though the channel guide for my cable system is not showing any bike racing after Sunday... I love how Comcast has no idea what NBC Sports is showing even though they're owned by the same company. The channel guide also does not seem to know that the British Grand Prix will be on CNBC this Sunday morning, even though that scheduling decision was announced a long time ago. But I digress...

    I was feeling pretty lukewarm about the Tour this year, but since Cannondale announced their lineup I'm looking forward to seeing Ted King setting the pace for Sagan. I don't know yet who I want to win the overall. Maybe Froome, though it would definitely be nice to see Tejay van Garderen on the podium.

    - Royal blue 2018 aluminum gravel bike, Rivet Pearl saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver 2003 aluminum road bike
    - Two awesome worn out Juliana saddles

    We only have over-the-air channels. Anyplace to watch at least highlights on-line?

    The last few years there has been an iPhone app that is amazing. Maybe $30 and you get live feed for the whole tour, NO COMMERCIALS. Then, highlights and stats and all the data stuff available right after each stage. I do this instead of splurging on cable TV so I have zero regrets.

    The last 3 years we have purchased the online package for our computer- we could sign in from any computer we had (but not our phones). It wasn't perfect- especially the last 2 years when NBC took it over, but generally allowed us to watch as much of the tour as we had time for, either live or after the stage was finished.

    Thanks for posting the schedule, ny biker.

    We only get network stations now but are going to be traveling for the second two weeks of the tour. Both places we'll be staying have cable TV (or satellite), but it remains to be seen if they get the NBCSN channel. Hope so!

    Called my satellite provider and added the channel for $6. She said I can cancel after the Tour.

    I'll be watching on EuroSport France. Except on July 14, where I'll watch it in the street with a gazillion other Bastille-Day celebrants in Lyon. Heh. ;-)

    Whoa, thanks for the heads up! I missed the start of the earlier showing, but I have the later one set to record now.

    Oh, cool!! I found this while trying to scope out Eurosport coverage on the web.

    "The Legend of the Tour de France", which was originally broadcast yesterday on France2. It's in French, but it's not too hard to get the gist for non-French speakers like moi. The footage is amazing.

    That said, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it's essentially the exact same show being broadcast tonite on NBCSN, with the narration dubbed over by Phil or Paul or one of the other usual suspects
