Watching Eurosport on line is awesome at the moment.

today Belgian Tour, tour de suisse, Dauphine, hungary, and some other stuff.

Overloaded with decent cycling. How do they do all this for the relativley modest cost?

    Money from Israel's tourism department apparently.

    Probably ties into that Masonic Froome conspiracy somehow.

    I've subscribed purely for the cycling. Only slight bugbear is why do subscribers have to watch ads?

    That's having your cake and eating it, no?

    Has anyone from their target audience (i.e. this sub forum) been tempted by two cities, one break?

    Well, their message is certainly sinking in. If I was a single man with spare cash I'd be off to Tel Aviv in a shot. The whole place seems full of impossibly beautiful women!

    Ah yes the Israeli girls are hottttt. :)

    Hopefully that’s not a misogynist banning comment lolol
  • larkimlarkim Posts: 2,263
    Yes, but one of the two in the ad is a British weather girl isn't she?

    My infatuation hasn’t extended to stalking them yet :)

    Though they bring a little

    Life :)
  • larkimlarkim Posts: 2,263
    LOL, it wasn’t stalking, I think on the Eurosport app it popped up a box to click which included a link to her Wikipedia or something like that.

    It makes sense of the intro bit with the “Today’s forecast - always sunny” bit in a distinctly English accent (Sian Welby, if you’re interested...)

    Sian Welby has presented UK domestic cycling for Eurosport - Revolution, Tour Series, stuff like that.

    Here she is with Alex Dowsett:

    not particularly, though Ive been to both cities before, so kind of feel Ive ticked them off anyway in travelling terms, and not to disappoint people but they werent much like any of that advert either

    Must be looking better value by the minutes as the girlie tennis screws up their minimal scheduling of Dauphine and Switzerland, this evening.
    Unlikely to be the last time this week, either.

    thinking of biting the bullet and signing up.. it's on 4.99 at the moment so looks pretty good value for money

    We get it bundled with our Virgin Media TV package of hundreds of sh1te channels. Very handy.

    My wife is still baffled by my apparent ability to find cycling on the telly all summer :D

    In spite of the saturation advertising I'm still not inclined to visit Tel-Aviv or Jerusalem...
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 13,981
    Clearly, their policy over the weekend has been to screw with their tv schedules as much as possible, in order to force folks onto the player. Switzerland first was a no show, then shown one hour ahead of epg time, now it's on instead of Ventoux....

    Eurosport need to launch a cycling channel to avoid the continued overlap of sports like snooker and tennis. Move it out of the Sky entertainment package and charge £5 a month for it. 24 hour cycling channel, current races, interviews and old races. Perfect.

    nice idea, but the money isnt there in a dedicated cycling channel. Had Bike TV shut and im sure one of the online only ones folded too

    ooooooft no wonder he's smiling

    Off for a bit of stalking. Since shes a professional presenter the advert is not objectifying anyone sluuuurp :lol:

    I prefer the brunette though TBH (Not dowsett, the israeli advert woman)

    I must say i'm happy with Eurosport except when some of their live streaming is censored or we have pics but no commentary*.

    *Sometimes this is a bonus. We had the joy of Carlton Kirby for some of Le Mans. Boy he can't stop chattering inanely.

    There's hope :D :

    I do like the woman in the Academic Singles ad. Short hair, chic, sexy.

    I met her at Circuit of the Fens pro race when it was still going.

    My favourite bit in that stupid “Always Sunny” ad is when we get to the glamorous evening niteclub and Sian turns around and momentarily doesn’t know where the camera is.

    Never mind that, here she is:

    She thinks that she's successful at love now, but just wait till she finds out that Dominic already has a family in Surrey.

    It’s ok though because his marriage is loveless, they’re an anchor and his wife has never understood him. He doesn’t know why he ever married her And anyway he’s leaving when the time is right.

    He married her because her father is on the board of directors. Without him, he'd be working in the box factory. No way is he going to leave his wife. Anyway she's shagging her pilates instructor.
