NBCSN shutting down

This will be the last year of cycling on NBCSN. I wonder where (and at what cost) we will be watching the TDF in 2022?

I saw that too. I know there are many other places, but I just watched NBCSN and that was fine for me. Although I preferred when Jensie was there.

Which begs the question, is Jens only Covid 2020 NBC gone, or totally NBC gone??

I imagine that NBCSN had purchased exclusive rights to provide Tour coverage (and more) in the US. With them gone, I have no doubt that one of the other major sports media companies like Eurosport would love to fill that void in the lucrative US market. I also wouldn't be surprised if they hired the commentators that have been popular in the US.

We'll see, but I'm not going to panic over this, especially since I don't have cable and I watch coverage from other countries online using a VPN.

Most of the content is going to go the the streaming service Peacock. Its free at the moment. I have xfinity which has common ownership with NBC so hopefully it stays free.
