I would like to watch Omloop (and other spring races) on my laptop in the US. I like Europort and GCN+, but I've tried in the past to VPN in, but when I go to pay it knows my credit card is from the US and blocks me. Has anyone been able to get Eurosport/GCN+ coverage from the US? I like the Eurosport and GCN commentators. Thanks very much for any info/advice. Regards, George

I’m assuming most folks in US would just prefer to use GCN, but if it doesn’t cover a smaller race and you’re using a VPN, a good alternative is the French -language broadcast on Belgian RTBF.be I needed to register with them but did not have to pay a subscription. I got my subscription to Eurosportplayer a long time ago and apparently it still is okay with it. I notice my address is there listed as Seattle, WA, France :)
 
flobikes.com

Pretty much everything is on either GCN or Flobikes. If it's not it has been on NBC Sports which now those ones are on an assortment of cable channels I believe.


Edit: There's also a page on USA cycling that's actually on Page 1 of the forums. Here you go: https://forum.cyclingnews.com/threads/cycling-on-usa-tv.34455/page-15
Noooooo!!!!!!!!!
FLowbikes is 100% garbage

Buy GCN plus
buy NordVPN (its like $3/month)

Then you can watch bascially every bike race all year long

GCN plus is available pretty much anywhere, you should buy it without a vpn so your credit card matches the country you are logged in from.
Once you have it, if content is not available in US, THEN use the vpn to connect to UK or whatever and then open GCN plus and you can view the content.

GCN plus is probably the best value for money i spend on anything

From the looks of it though, Omloop is not on the GCN+ broadcast schedule in the US for Sat, which is what the OP is asking about. GCN seems to cover everything Eurosport has the broadcast right to. But that’s not everything. For instance, in France, L’Équipe is the broadcast outlet for Omloop tomorrow rather than Eurosport.fr Occasionally France3 has the rights. Does GCN+ manage to show the non-Eurosport coverage for their U. S. audience? I probably wouldn’t switch to it but I have cycling fan friends would definitely be interested,

Omloop is streamed for free by Sporza on their website. You can get a VPN with unlimited data per country for 2 $/m (windscribe.com -> Build A Plan). Of course you can use a VPN for any other country if you don't understand Dutch and know a different webbased broadcaster in any country that does so in English.
 
2 helpful things..first for reasons not just bike racing,a good VPN service cures most problems..and I have not used it this year but steephill tv usually has a feed of two that will work..and regular searches often turn up a non English language broadcast..

You can also buy a Namechip VPN, I use it often! Excellent VPN!
Thanks for the info. I use windscribe vpn myself, but I'm always looking for information on the best options.
I now want to buy a new TV. However, I don't have enough money to buy it right away. I'm thinking of taking out a TV loan. But first I need to improve my credit score. I found here https://fitmymoney.com/credit-repair/ great information to improve the rating. I think this method is ideal for buying premium TVs and home theaters. I am now thinking of buying Samsung or Sony.

I started doing what you suggest, and of course I don't know any language other than English. And even listening to some of the announcers on Euro-sport is about the same to me as a foreign language.! But, I'm pretty much lost without having some announcing telling me what is happening. That is where text updates from cyclingnews.com can help.

I watched Paris-Roubaix that way. I found a Spanish television channel that streamed it right off their website, no charge and no registering. I VPN'ed into a computer in Spain and watched it that way while reading the text updates.

I would do it again. And it helped me become more aware of what was happening during the race than relying on an announcer for everything.
