    Default How are you US guys watching the Vuelta?

    I don't have a TV (no access to Universal Sports). I can get the Eurosport Player to work through a proxy server, but they only have some races stored for later viewing (i.e., the classics were available for a couple weeks afterward, but some other races appear to be only available as live). Does anyone know if the Eurosport broadcast can be accessed later through the app, or is there some other way to watch?

    You can see it live on the link below. You may need a VPN to change your location, Hideman is free.

    In case you don't mind seen the stage later, you will find the complete broadcast for each day stage around this time of day in the same link.

    Enjoy.

    Definitely paying attention. Out on the road at the moment so I can't watch until the middle of the race. But it's instructive to pay attention to time gaps even at this early stage of the race. You can see who's attentive and riding at the front and who might be suffering and further back.

    I will watch it when and if I can. Stands to be the best stage race of the year in all likelihood. I really wish Horner were there even if he'd likely be outclassed.

    Won't be in a position to watch though until near the end of next week....... Ouch.

    Nice quality video. Too bad I don't understand Spanish.

    Seeing the peloton ride out of an aircraft carrier was kinda cool, though.

    Movistar seemed attentive right up until the last bit today. But they are still packing the top 10.

    You guys talk about how bad Phil and Paul are, GoGo and whoever the hell is his partner is are absolutely atrocious! Sleep-inducing at best.

    Worse is that the Universal Sports feed seems to be in low def.
    The video is unwatchable, at least on a large format flat screen TV.
    (Now where did I put that 13" Mitsubishi I bought in 1986???)

    Are folks watching this on NBC/Universal? My cable guide has failed to show it as being on, even though the network's website says they will be broadcasting it every morning at 10am (EST). I set the DVR for 10am today to see if it's on, even though the guide lists "The Dan Patrick Show" - fingers crossed!

    I'm watching on CyclingTorrents.nl

    In English, for most stages you will have your pick of Eurosport, ITV4 or SBS networks, as well as full stage or highlights broadcasts. You will have to download/install torrent software and create an account on the website but it is well worth it for the coverage you can access.

    What is nice about rtve.com site is been able to see the complete stage transmission at any time or even the next day, not only live as steephill.tv and most streams!
