Hi! GCN+ says they cover the grand tours - I ma mainly interested in TdF, complete live coverage.

I can catch it via VPN, and brush up on my French skills - but will GCN cover TdF live, complete?

For the USA, I think NBC has the exclusive on the full TdF broadcast. I thought others in the US can only show highlights. Might be wrong though.

The Cycling pass for NBC Sports Gold is fairly decent price, IMO. The don't have the Giro, but the do have the Vuelta and enough other cycling events to keep my wife sick and tired of watching cycling.

No they donít have the rights to that. ITV in England carries the tour in England. No need to translate.

Eurosport should cover it. They always do. You can also get many stations that cover it through an IPTV service. I have an IPTV service for 15 a month and along with the VPN, I can get just about anything.

I could be wrong, but NBC Sports Gold went belly up I believe and it was sold to USA Network? Not sure of this, but on my IPTV service menu, NBC Gold is no longer available and I believe NBC sold it off. Don't know what happened or will happen to all the Gold subscribers either, but I am pretty sure it is gone.

I have no idea either who will carry it in the US this year if NBC opted out.

They aren't belly up --- yet. Something is going on with all the NBC sports stuff. But till the end of 2021 I expect things will be pretty much the same as they are now.

It wasn't so much that I was endorsing NBC Gold, but just stating that NBC has the exclusive on the TdF live broadcast of the TdF in the USA and I think full broadcast of the replays of entire stages. So the OP wanted to see the Tdf. So if the OP is in the USA, then they'll need to watch it on NBC.

NBC has broadcast it on both the NBC sports network and through the NBC sports gold. So until NBC sports goes belly up for good as far as cycling goes, I'm not going to waste my time looking elsewhere for TdF live and full stage replays in the USA.
