Dakar 2015: Where to Watch

I don't have cable - or a TV for that matter - so am looking for places where the Dakar 2015 coverage will be televised (pubs, meetups, whatever ).

I actually live in Olympia, but I reckon this will be an issue for a lot of folks in the PNW.

Suggestions?

NBC SPORTS HD is the US broadcaster, local listing for January aren't up yet, bet your local sports bar will hook you up.

No cable here either, my plan is to hang out at the EUG meatup spot where they tolerate my carcass.

Online

Eurosport coverage usually shows up on Usenet within 24 hrs. Sometimes it's even in English.

Where to Watch?

This looks like a good seat to watch from http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=482

Pruned from this thread http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1024682

Lots of good info for watching on line should pop up in this thread.

Yep, I record the (sucky) daily coverage from Fox Sport Network, but Eurosport has way better coverage.

NBCSN is the network providing coverage. So whatever Channel your local provider has NBCSN on. Here in Tacoma Comcast is channel220 and Direct TV is channel 626. Good luck and God speed!

I've got the NBCSN app for my iPhone and iPad and airplay it to the big screen/sound system.
