How to watch the Tour de France 2024, wherever you are

Watch the tour from start to finish

TDF main

Tour de France 2024 is almost here. Unless you’re amongst the crowds who line the track with grasped banners and words of support, you’re not getting anywhere close to the podium. But, there are more than a few ways to watch the Tour de France. From watching it stateside to using a VPN, here’s how to watch the Tour de France wherever you are.


When is it?

The Tour de France will roll away on 29 June for its 111th edition. For the first time ever, the Grand Départ will take place in Italy and, due to the Olympic and Paralympic Games taking place in Paris, the race will not finish in the French capital for the first time. Instead, the world’s best cyclists will end the race in Nice on 21st July.

For its 111th outing, the gruelling contest is a month-long marathon of mountain climbs, downhill sprints and more than a few falls. The Tour has born legends, controversies, and along the way, some champions who risk everything for a yellow jersey (as well as a few endorsement deals along the way).


Where to watch: US

If you’re in the US, the best way to watch the Tour de France is through Peacock Premium. Peacock will air every single live stage of the Tour de France daily. On some days, NBC and USA Network will also be showing coverage and highlights.

A Peacock subscription with access to the Tour de France can be bought from $5.99, or $59.99 per year, through a Peacock Premium account.


Where to watch: UK

In the UK, there’s plenty of free options to catch every minute of the Tour de France. This year, coverage can be found on ITV4, Eurosport, Discovery+ and GCN+ (Global Cycling Network).

Air times are still yet to be confirmed, but live racing and highlights will be shown on ITV4 each day. It can also be streamed online through ITVX. Eurosport and GCN+ will also be showing every single minute, climb and sprint from every stage. It’s also being shown through Eurosport’s Discovery+ streaming service, which gains access to sports content from the Eurosport Player, which ceased to exist from 13 January 2023.
