  • Picture quality was rubbish and the Australian commentator was irritating. Oh well.

    That's to put it mildly. I gave up with the sound halfway through after one two many Jerolsteiner pronunciations. Few other teams and riders got interesting new names too.

    Same pictures are Eurosport were using, given the atrocious weather the pictures were as good as could be expected.

    What, even on that bright and sunny Ventoux stage? Anyway this isn't an issue relating solely to this race. Their picture quality was also rubbish for their Tour coverage when compared to the same live pictures on Eurosport.

    If I saw the end title correctly, it was an ASO production.
    I was only joking when I said
    by rights you should be bludgeoned in your bed

    Possibly a cable/sat bandwidth issue?

  • WTF - regardless of picture quality why do ITV never seem to advertise the fact they're broadcasting these rare snippets. The same thing happened last year when they broadcast the Tour of Ireland ...

    I think they consider them cheap padding for the schedules, like World Tiddleywinks, or Beach Aerobics, or Skateboarding or something.

    But considering the number of people who tune-in for the Tour, you'd have thought it worth sticking-up a trailer or two to say it's on.

    I fell over the second half by accident, just turned-on the telly to get a weather forecast and it happened to be tuned to ITV4.

    BTW, C4 are showing Langkawi in the middle of the night all this week, 04:55 tomorrow morning...
