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.


Thanks!!!! There is hope :)

beIN doesn't do advance notification or schedules well at all :( Didn't know it was carrying the Giro until days before the race started!

That was hilarious! And then Paul would pronounce it correctly with this somewhat dejected air as tho he had given Phil a bit of help during the last break and the poor old dear had forgotten already..... again.

Thanks to all for the info on Tour de Suisse coverage in the Us on BeIn Sport. I had accidentally discovered that beIn was available on FIOS the week before the Giro and decided to subscribe for a month. Now I'll make it 2 months!

(I know it's OT but I'll take P&P over Kirby and Oss any day.)

What channel was that on? I watched Universal and had Craig Hummer and Robby Ventura. Much better than P&P LOL!

Phil made up an excuse once "that's how they pronounce it in Belgium"? ok um which pronunciation Phil?

and I hope amgen and NBC are on his a$$ for his constant uninspired description of Cali Landscape: Barren and Parched? Really, even in the hills near the beach Phil? Like any Brit coming home from holiday complaining about the heat and dry land.

That's good news about Switzerland on Bein, but why don't Bein sports do themselves a favor and announce it?

Wish they would :( I will be out of town and will have to rely on setting up a beIN 'cycling' timer and pray.....

I saw that too.:mad:

Although on the FIOS channel guide beIn Sport's schedule is TBA, TBA from 4am Saturday onwards---just like it was prior to the start of the Giro.

I'm hopeful it's just the same ineptitude. Ya know, procrastinate until the last minute on how best to jam in some cycling with all that soccer;)

Stay tuned I guess

Has anyone found any indications for 2014 coverage?

I've poked around NBC Sports but couldn't find anything.

I doubt that the NBCSports site will be updated for cycling until the winter Olympics is history.
