    Just had a look on the Sky planner... its on Sports 2 and Sports HD2:

    Sun January 18th at 7:30pm HD2
    Mon January 19th at 4:00am HD2
    Mon January 19th at 8:30am HD2
    Mon January 19th at 7:30pm HD3

    If you don't have HD then hurry up and get it. Seriously though, its on the equivalent LD channels as well.

    Typical lazy-censored Sky, there are no proper descriptions so you have to assume the latest stage highlights will be broadcast the following day and there is no Series Link either.

    Cheers Sky, now that you are a cycling sponsor how about pulling your finger out and setting up your EPG properly...
  • I also found this; not sure how accurate it is but it could be worth checking as the season goes on:

    I checked last night and the broadcasts of the TdU listed on the HD channels were only in SD.
    Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.

    If you're interested in online streaming of the race, try www.cyclingfans.com They have some info posted now, and they usually manage to find alternative coverage on the day of the race.

  • www.cycling.tv shown live but you have to sign up and there is a cost but well worth it.

    A bit OT but has anyone seen the part in Michael McIntyre where he talks about HD?

    Cracking!
