i looked through the TV listings the other day and saw that NBC Sports is showing the Tour Down Under tape delayed daily, in the evening. that's it so far. i would think that Universal will show San Luis, as they did last year.

I dvr'd most stages on NBC SN, but they had their schedule screwed so one stage was hockey, and a couple of other stages were only half recorded.

Meanwhile check out the 2014 sched:

PN one single recap show
CI
PR - live ? starts early sunday am
FW
LBL
ToC - daily
Daupine - daily replay

and Le Tour, of course

Since when did they stop broadcasting TdS?

I liked their coverage and commentarie of the 2012 edition. The only time I watched NBC.

they lost the rights for TdS, Flanders, and Romandie to BeIn Sport last year

i'm really disappointed that they won't be showing Paris-Nice like they usually do. their coverage of it was awesome last year, i believe they had 90 minute shows for each stage, and now it's just one recap show.

at least the Dauphine will be at a reasonable time this year, and not at 2am like last season.

Yes and beIN never showed RvV :( I did see the others. beIN also got all the RCS races (outbid Universal) and had decent coverage of all of them!

The only schedule I've seen though is NBC SN.

Okay so the Dubai Tour is on Universal!!! Only reason I know is because my DVR is setup to record anything on Universal named cycling. I was scrolling through the list of scheduled recordings on the DVR and there is was!!! Delayed coverage, I assume, starts 2/5 at 6PM EST and each day at that time through the end of the race.

edit: there is still No Schedule up on their website, sigh!

Good: Universal has a race.

Bad: Universal isn't offered by my cable provider (FIOS)

That's odd. I have Verizon Fios, and I have Universal Sports in my lineup. It should be channel 596. Verizon picked up a contract for it at some point in 2013.

Universal finally posted their 2014 Schedule

http://universalsports.com/2014/02/04/2014-cycling-schedule/

It is fairly impressive if perhaps a little cryptic:
Dubai - daily
Oman - daily
Catalunya -daily
E3 Hrelbeke - live?
3 day Pann - daily live?

Basque country? daily
Eschborn-Frankfurt?
Dunkirk - daily

Vuelta - daily

Wow, that's a pretty disappointing schedule of races there. :( Hopefully Bein and NBC will have the other key races of the year and round it out.

Cryptic indeed!!! About the same as last year I don't think we've lost anything. beIN took all the RCS races last year and only showed the Giro live.

So assuming Giro is on Bein in 2014 (and i don't know that it is)

We still need:

daily P-N (right now it looks like just one summary broadcast)

T-A
MSR
Flanders
Suisse

Anyone know if one of NBC or Bein will have the Ardennes? Who was it last year? I've forgotten.

Unfortunately no :( You must be a subscriber to the tv station to get the streams. It is why I switched to DISH in 2012. Prior to that I was able to buy the stream signal package, alas no more.

beIN had T-A, MSR and Lombardia last year as well as E3 and Strade Bianchi.

NBC Sports has rights to P-N and Suisse as far as I know and they have become the worst cycling station :(

$10 per month and install the app, you get BeIn and Universal on your computer. You can also get a Roku box which hooks up to a TV with an HDMI cable and download the DishWorld app for free.

I have it, because my cable provider doesn't even offer either of those channels, and it works really well. Everything they show is also on demand, so you can watch it whenever, like if you were DVR'ing the entire schedule. i watched the first stage of Dubai Tour with it yesterday, it worked great.
