    Cycling.TV? I wouldn't know as they are holding my money and programing hostage. The charged me for Gold USA, but activated me for Premium-which doens't get anything this time of year. No one there will help me.

    No they're just doing the world cups. I watched the Pijnacker one last Sunday.

    Yeah I know what you mean; they're the world's worst company to deal with. Try their message board with your subscription concerns as Rebecca and Halverde (two employees) hang out there and answer a few questions. They seem to have a touch of compassion (I did say 'touch of'). You needed the UCI package to get the WC cx races and until last week it wasn't available to you guys in the USA due to programming rights. Us up here in Canada could get it. But, late last week they fixed things up so that you guys, if you bought the UCI package, could get the world cup cx/s.

    I'm not suggesting anyone give them $0.01 of their money as because of their problems and total lack of customer service, they should burn in hell.

    The vt4 coverage was great, fantastic picture, no glitches and easily found. S-Video out to my TV even looked good. Only knock is its live only so no re-broadcast. For us west coasters its early but I'm up at 4AM so not a big deal.

    Cycling.tv has been the topic of my last 20 posts on here it seems. What a joke. They should be embarassed honestly. I disputed my CC charge and won. They didn't even contest it.

    So when they die and fail, will pro racing be abandoned due to lack of interest. They are either inundated with complaint mail or so rolling in the $$ that they don't care. The only reason I hold on to any hope is that I'm the greatest Giro fan, they loose that, they loose me for life.

    I get THAT when I (try to) tune into the world cups at (*&^%$ $#@) Cycling.TV.

    I get quad exercise bouncing up & down in my compu-chair, tricep & bicep exercise while pounding the compu-desk plus vocal cord and vocabulary exercise complete with sprint intervals level heart rate. When my subscription runs out I'll have to dust the bike off to replace that exercise.

    Yes, very cool. Great clear pic! It would be easier for me to learn Dutch than to deal with Cycling.TV in the future.
