Anyone find free English Giro coverage?

I'm able to get a live video feed (using VPN) from Rai TV, but it's in Italian. I haven't been able to find a free TV or radio broadcast in English. Any ideas?

Without going back thru all the VPN related posts, what dd you settle on for VPN?

Express VPN. So far, it works great, but it can't make coverage magically appear.

I'm not surprised that the Giro is getting sort of a cold shoulder from many cycling broadcasters, as none of the top names are there, since there were all at the Tour. About the only thing that's particularly interesting after today is that Lawson Craddock is in a good position.

I tried a free 7 day PureVPN. I get a Milan IP, now where to find the actual Giro coverage??

Caught the TT on You-tube minus VPN etc etc.

I did not see one face mask in the dense crowds either... Had to double check if I was watching last years by mistake.

You could put the GCN app on a phone/tablet and pay a few dollars for one month's race coverage. You get the Eurosport coverage, and the app can cast to a TV screen if you have a Chromecast dongle or if the TV has built-in Chromecast, as quite a number do these days. Besides live streaming you can also playback the last couple of months worth of races.

I have the app on my Android phone - I pay an annual subscription of $AU65 (~$US45) in order to get all the European cyclocross coverage which I can't otherwise view. I think a single month's coverage is about $AU12 / $US8. If you have a subscription you can also access the race coverage on a PC via their website.

Yes, but not without subscribing. I ran into issues with Eurosport when I tried to subscribe previously, as if you give them a US credit card, they reject it because Fubo is the official broadcaster for the US, not Eurosport. In that case, the VPN doesn't help, because it doesn't matter where it appears that you're located, the card number gives it away.

I haven't tried GCN, so I'll look into that tomorrow. If that doesn't work, I guess I'll get a daily Italian lesson as I listen. ;-)

BTW, Liege-Bastogne-Liege is on tomorrow, too. That should be available on SBS using a VPN.

I am watching Giro stages with PureVPN set to UK spoof on a Welch site. Audio muted, what a bizzare language, and the spelling of it is even more bizzare.. Stage coverage 3 hr. for today.

I tried them on Saturday in the hope it was in English, but no such luck. Yeah, Welsh is an odd language, for sure. I'm watching the Rai TV coverage in Italian, which at least seems appropriate.
