Wife and I tried to sign up for the Universal / Direct TV Giro package ($20). Not successful. So I said call Direct TV, there's an 800#. She called. Talking Giro to a Direct TV rep is not easy. ANYWAY The good news.
Direct rep said they have a Universal special promo on now. You can get up to three (3) months of Universal Sports for $8 per month, AND you can cencel whenever you you want. So we signed up, and voila! Instant Giro coverage for the month of May for less than $8. (Plus there's the added bonus of all the other stuff, like Beach Volley Ball. Who the heck thought up those "uniforms?!)
We just watched the replay coverage of Track Championships in Melbourne too.
Happy so far.
Glad you were able to get it on your TV. Their web coverage of the Giro on the other hand, is not working for me. I paid $30 for the "spring cycling package" that was supposed to include the Giro. Now, with the prologue streaming live, I can only see a 1:30 long "preview" and it wants me to pay $20 to watch the Giro. I ALREADY PAID FOR THIS!
I'm certainly going to be demanding a refund repeatedly as mentioned above if they don't fix this by, say, Monday.
