Cycling.TV to stop in early November

by VeloClub

Viewing options for cycling fans will constrict from November after the news that the streaming service Cycling.TV will shut down one month from now. Subscribers received a message on Tuesday stating that the channel was unable to continue.

“Cycling.TV regrets to inform you that as of November 3, 2017 we will cease operations,” it said. “As set forth in Clause 4 of Cycling.TV’s Terms and Conditions of Purchase, you will receive ‘a refund of the amount you pre-paid for the Services less an amount proportionate to the number of days for which you have had access to the Services’.”

The channel has been in existence for several years and offered fans a way to see a number of streamed races, including Tour highlights and major stage races and one day events. It had been due to show important cyclocross races in the coming months, but that won’t happen.

Commentator Marty MacDonald acknowledged the news on Wednesday.
