Can anyone help me, I dont have Eurosport or Sky tv but am hoping the Giro is being shown somewhere on the web?
Any links would be greatly appreciated.
myp2p.eu is usually pretty good for links to streams of live sport, including cycling.
You can pay £3.99 for a months access to the Eurosport web player and watch it on that?
i found http://www.fromsportcom.com/c-9.html
Steephill.tv is where I watched it yesterday. Just google steephill tv giro and there will be a page or something!
cheers for the info! joined up for 3.99 unbelievable bargain!
Simon tweeted this in from his train to Milan airport…
"Gazzetta dello Sport site has live feed 0f last two hours or so, Italian commentary, no geog restrictions AFAIK"
how good is the eurosport player footage? Is it worth the dosh over the free streams from cyclingfans.com and steephill.tv etc. Is it better quality footage on full screen viewing?
Yes I would definately recommend it,full screen isnt the best but easily watchable also no buffering/slowness you also have access to full videos of stages from last year! Sad news today tho for Weylandt and his family x
£3.99 is a bargain but the Microsoft Silverlight-based player can be a bit crap. I've been catching what I can through the cyclingfans links, and Eurosport when I can get it to work.
I'm a Eurosport Player subscriber and I can comfirm what Stewie says.
As a service it is greaqt but the Silverlight based interface & player is truly awful and only (sometimes barely) works on MS Windows.
I only put up with it because of the cycling coverage.
Actually, there's an FOS version of Silverlight for UNIX systems - 'Moonlight', but if possible it seems to be even worse than the Windows version. It claims to be 'loading' when I can see through the system monitor that there's no activity on the internet connection, takes up huge amounts of resources, and rarely if ever achieves anything other than making my laptop rather warm.
Sorry, rantble over.
does it work with apple?
RIP to WW too, such a tragic event - may he always ride with the wind at his back
It might do. It does say UNIX rather than Linux, and Mac OS is just prettied-up UNIX.
I don't know what to say about Wouter. So tragic
@charlie bravo yes it does work with a Mac - last year for some reason I found that the HD version worked better than the standard one.
steephill.tv for me... picture quality not great but its free
