A guide to watching and live streaming the 2021 Tour de France this summer

How to watch and live stream the Tour de France 2021

We're fast approaching the start of the 108th Tour de France, back in its usual June and July slot following the disruption of the 2020 season caused by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

After the drama of last year's Tour, there is not a stage to be skipped in 2021 with Messrs Roglič and Pogačar set to reignite their battle for the maillot jaune with one of the all-time super teams sent by Ineos Grenadiers clawing at their heels.

There will be racing from the very start with the opening stages in Brittany packing multiple uphill finishes for puncheurs and GC men alike, with flying Dutchman Mathieu van der Poel making his debut and in ferocious form.

With plenty of climbing, descending and two (flat) time-trials, it's almost anybody's game.

How to watch the Tour de France 2021

As always, live coverage of the 2021 Tour de France in the UK will be shown on Eurosport, ITV4 and Welsh broadcaster S4C.

Eurosport and the online Eurosport Player will be providing extensive live coverage of all 21 stages as well as evening highlights. 

Most digital television packages will provide Eurosport for free. You can also subscribe to the online Eurosport Player, which often offers ad-free coverage, for £6.99 per month or £39.99 per annum here.

Alongside Eurosport, ITV4 will also be showing daily live coverage from all 21 stages as well as evening highlights. In the UK, ITV4 is a free-to-air channel and will be available on all digital television packages.

Additionally, the racing will be shown live on the online ITV Hub here which is also free to use.

The third option is GCN+, which runs in partnership with Eurosport. The online platform is accessible on desktop and phone, offering uninterrupted live coverage and longer broadcasting than television. This is available here and costs £39.99 per year.
