Show started 30min late due to stupid soccer going overtime...but Great HD pic, commentary by Kirby and Lloyd. Yes there was a commercial within the final few km..????? go figure.

I watched stream until it came on, definitely prefer beIN than streams that stop and drop and have just as many commercials!

so happy that BeIn Sports has decided to cover cycling

Universal Sports, while it has pretty good coverage as far as number of races, the picture quality is just awful and standard definition

NBC Sports, other than the Tour, covers the worst races possible it seems and not very many at that

hopefully BeIN can get the Tour and Vuelta if the rights are available

Hopefully a lot of people watch it on BeIN as well, and that makes them decide to carry more cycling events.
Was very happy when I heard BeIN would have all 21 stages, as I was very disappointed when the Giro didn't appear on Universals schedule. This way I don't have to rely on highlights, but can still watch stages in full if I miss them live. :)

Is BeIN a extra paid channel? I can't find it in my comcast package
Either SKY bring us into future or bring us back ten years. Only time will tell.

Yes, you pay extra for it on dish. It's part of a sports package.

Edit: A quick Google gave me this

And on BeIN's website this
• Comcast has launched beIN SPORT across the U.S. Please contact your local Comcast office for channel information.

Don't know about comcast. I have DISH and had to get 250 channel package to get it + Red Zone Sports package to get Universal.

beIN shows many races delayed, like todays TTT, and I've already seen on streams (like today) but it is great to rewatch parts or record if I'm not available to see streams. Plus they had the rights to RvV and Never aired it....haven't seen it yet since it was on Easter day and I was out....

So I'm not crazy about them but sure beats No Giro :)

OOps I was wrong. beIN is included in the Multi-Sport Red Zone package on DISH, this package also includes Universal and is only $9.00 per month. I needed the 250 channel package to get NBCSports...which sucks but has le Tour live so I need it LOL :)

EDIT:beIN is in the 250 package which includes NBCSports. Plus it is in the Multi-Sport Red Zone package that includes Universal. If you want all 3 you need both the 250 and Multi-Sport like I have (so I pay for it twice LOL!). If you can live without NBCSports you can get both beIN and Universal for $9.00 per month via the Multi-Sport package.

I am in bay area. I called xfinity, the CSR first told me they never heard of this channel, then told me they simply don't provide this channel in my area. I don't know if that is true or not. I will try again on Monday.:(

On my Fios it comes as part of package for $9.99 per mo, so if I cancel after one month the giro in HD cost me only 10 bucks.

Does anybody know about Dauphine and tour de Suisse coverage in the US?

It looks like Dauphine is only two highlight shows on NBC Sports, and I can't find anything about tour of Switzerland.

Funny enough you're on about this.

I ask Robert Hatch on twitter earlier if the Tour de Suisse was on Sky Sports instead of Eurosport this year. He said it was on Bein Sport also in the US.

Robert Hatch is doing the international commentary for Suisse so he would know who is showing it worldwide.

You will be listening to his commentary more than likely.
