    Great - just cancelled my £3.99/month "legacy" package in order to take this offer up, but the website seems to have a glitch (SUPRISE SUPRISE, EUROSPORT!) and when I click the £19.99 package and then proceed, the next page is a "£6.99/month pay now" page, seemingly with no option to take up the £19.99 offer.

    Thanks a lot!


    (EDIT: last comment was directed at Eurosport, not the OP!)

    Does anyone have a contact address for Eurosport player?

    There seems to be no obvious contact details on the website to contact them to try and sort this mess out?!

    EDIT - found it (not obvious!)

    Pretty sure you can get Eurosport free over a fire stick with Kodi loaded on it. Not that I condone stealing television or anything
  • I've been considering this, although I've got Eurosport already through Sky. Is there any extra coverage I'd get with Eurosport player?

    I've seen mention of some races on before they go live which could be interesting but I need a bit more to justify it.

    I have to say, at £3.99 it was just about worth it considering the constant freezing, missing races, occasional complete lack of commentary and most importantly the fact they pulled the app from Samsung TVs a few weeks after I bought 2 new Samsung TVs because they had the Eurosport app built in.

    The ONLY reason I have stuck with Eurosport player for so long is because there's no other options (without complex arrangements to steal feeds, or to watch them in "foreign").

    The service is utterly pants, and not worth any more than £3.99/month. If they refuse to reinstate that, I certainly won't pay £6.99/month.

    Just bookmark the link to cyclinghub.tv and forego the ES subscription. Job done.

    Is that not a paid service?

    Does it have all/most the races?

    Yep, everything except for the TdF in fact, which is on ITV4 anyway. Not a paid service. It also has lots of races not on ES, but they're usually from Sporza or wherever.

    Didn't it go AWOL half way through last season?

    There was a problem last year around the TdF, but I think it's been fixed.

    Wow... ok... seems too good to be true, but I'll check it out!

    Nothing to check at the moment, website being updated.

    Basically it's a couple of students who love cycling and stream all the bike channels for free. No annoying ads or dodgy stuff on there either. Pretty good IMO.

    I've recently lost Eurosport as it ended up being in the same Sky bundle as all the kids channels we no longer wanted so if this actually works I might get it. I like Eurosport for the winter sports as well as cycling so need more than cyclinghub.

    Ok, well thanks for this! I have bookmarked them and found them on twitter - will see what comes of it when they put the website back up :-)

    (Can't see that it's legal though?!)

    Update, just messaged them (cyclinghub) on twitter and they replied to say they aren't doing it in 2017, but that other folk will be doing a similar service...

    Saw that a short while ago and forgot about it, thanks for the reminder

    Just signed up with no problems.

    Oh that's not good.

    I have Sky Player anyway, but will miss some of the smaller races I was able to watch.

    I just went onto their site and don't see the offer, just the 6.99 euro per month. Is it only for UK residents?

    They're going a funny way about not doing it...
