The Great Digital Switchover has not completed all over the country yet.  And I think Freeview isn't available in some nooks and crannies, so satellite or cable TV then would be needed to get ITV4.

I've got a box though, so will be catching some TdF.  Thanks for the info.

Or the whole of West Cumbria (including two 45000 population towns and my 20000 town among others)

I get half of the freeview channels, and for some reason they prefer to give me ITV+1 than ITV4  >:(

Live streaming is all well and good if you don't have to work; I'd just like to be able to watch the 19.00 synopsis like we used to get on C4...

Is there are preview show on this week?  I've had a quick look on the ITV website and can see the live coverage times and the 7pm round-up shows from Saturday onwards, but no intro show.

An annual thing for me. 3 weeks of watching the daily 1 hr highlight show after SWMBO has gone to beddybyes.

It's started, they missed the live start, the race is ongoing… and what have we got? No race coverage just talk about doping and Contador.

Race was supposed to start at 12.05 - it started earlier.

Missed the bit across the causeway.

Well his helmet looked rather unscathed later on. He'll have a very bruised hip though.

Definitely an interesting stage.
We could see a british yellow jersey tomorrow. Thomas perhaps, but cavendish won't get it as he finished behind a team mate today.

Saw JT and a lady, Mrs. JT (?), being interviewed by Ned. Waggins had nothing to say though.
Will a meeting betwixt Wiggo and Waggins happen?  ???
