I know how to stream stages live, but is there any place that replays stages for those who can't watch at 5 or 6 in the morning? thanks

My schedule doesn't allow me to watch live either so I paid 30 bucks for the Versus online on-demand service. It's worth it to me. If you don't want to pay you can find the torrents for download everyday, I've used cyclingtorrents forum for those before.

oh ok i'll try the torrents.. what torrent program do you recommend? what do you get for 30 bucks? can you watch the entire stage or just the snippets they show you in between 5000 commercials?

You get live video for the full duration of the TV broadcast with no commercials - today started at 8:30 am Eastern. The post-race on-demand video gets you the FULL race from start to finish - 6 hours of video with no commercials.

Is the versus on demand geo-restricted?

Also

I can't watch video at work but I can get away with live audio. Eurosport does not seem to work. Is there any other live audio in English or Spanish that is not geo-restricted? I am currently in Central America.

I watched eurosport via http://www.steephill.tv/tour-de-france/ today in english you just have to try several streams and one will be in english. It was britisheurosport. I'm in the USA and we don't get eurosport but this allows you to get it.
