Armstrong/Postal 13 week documentary coming on OLNbc165

If you didn't know it already, OLN plans to do a 13 week documentary leading up to the tdf starting April 29. Looks great. Here's the link...

I might be moving to a town that doesn't offer OLN through the local cable network. Any of you use a dish? Any recommendations for service?

Sort of reality meets cycling. who da thunk it?

Although, interestingly enough on one of the earlier posts, someone paraphrased John Cobb as saying Lance will have a good chance of winning if he stays out of hollywood.

OLN certainly ain't hollywood but its definately a step closer.

Since I did not read the quote I won't get too excited or know-it-all-ish but Mr. Cobbs comments may have have been more literal than you think. Physically LA has been to L.A. a few times recently.

OLN is offered on the Dish Network ,at least here in Tucson. I believe it's offered on Direct TV and Cox Digital Cable here in town as well. I would contact either Dish or Direct TV to see if it's offered in your new location. A very good possibility I would think.

OLN is offered nationwide on both DISH network and DIRECTV (I have it here in CT on DIRECTV). Both systems are roughly equivalent at this point, with the most important difference maybe the availability of local channels in your town. Both offer PVR or DVR capabilities, so you can watch Lance in slow mo - or speed through a 3 hour night of the tour without the commercials or some of the ridiculous local color that OLN provided us with last year. 3 hours takes 2 max, and more like 1 if you cut out the extraneous stuff.
