Yep, 6pm every night on Gem and Go has old comedy repeats. Would the cycling really rate any lower?

Then again I probably wouldn't bother watching highlights for an hour on channel 9 as the highlights would consist of about 25 minutes of cycling, 10 minutes of inane chat, 15 minutes of ads and 10 minutes of station promos and ads for their other shows.

This is what I really hate about the coverage of the olympics. The idiotic comperes sit around droning on while 20 sports are happening live all around them. It's so bad it is close to unwatchable.

TdU Channel Nine coverage

Does anyone have any contact details for anyone associated with programming on nine that we could annoy, I mean ask why it's being telecast at such stupid times?

Cheers

Not sure if it will be live coverage or just live tweets etc.

Has anyone noticed any sort of advertising on nine anywhere for this event?

Up here in QLD on Win I haven't seen any mention of it.

How impressed would sponsors etc be?

I just sent an email to the TDU tourism people to tell them about how impressed cyclists are with the telecast times.

Cheers

Also there is track racing on Eurosport tonight 7.00pm

This is the key lead up series to the world's biggest track cycling events - the Olympic Games and UCI World Championships. Hold on tight as the Aussie contingent attempts to dominate the velodrome.

Better yet, does anybody have Mike Turter's email?? I emailed Channel 9 numerous times during their woeful Rugby World Cup coverage, only for the blame to be shifted to the programmers, which apparently could not be contacted by the public........

I hope Turter made a decent amount of money out of this deal, as 3 years of next to no coverage can only be negative for the event in the long run..........

Colour me unimpressed, was really looking forward to the TDU, an hour of highlights in the middle of the night and a pathetic "livestream" are not what I call coverage. New Zealand gets live coverage, yet the home of the race doesn't, sad.

A grainy, pixellated image 2 inches by 1 and a half. Broadcasting at its finest.

I was excited and thought I would watch it on my la-di-da internet tv. Unfortunately cannot download the media player plug-in required.

Yep - the stream will not work in Safari on a Mac but it will work using Firefox although the image is small and grainy.
