The NOS will broadcast the program ‘De Avondetappe’ again. The talk show ‘Vive le Velo’ can be seen at Flemish broadcaster VRT (Sporza). What time do they live TV broadcasts of the stages start? Where can you find a live stream of the Tour de France 2020?
Tour Will Not Start In 2020 Until August 29 Due To The Corona Crisis:
The Tour de France 2020 was originally scheduled to start on June 27. However, in the spring of 2020, it became clear that this round should be postponed due to the coronavirus. As a result of the corona crisis, no major events were allowed to take place in France until mid-July, French president Macron announced on April 13. The Tour organization, therefore, went looking for a new date. Ultimately, Saturday 29 August was chosen as the new start date for this edition of the Tour de France 2020 live.
Tour De France And The Media:
Since the prehistoric times of cycling, there has been a strong link between cycling and the media. The Tour de France, like many famous cycling races, was originally organized by a newspaper (L’Auto). After all, tough cycling races produced beautiful, heroic, and creamy stories for the newspapers. When the radio phenomenon emerged, the Tour de France also formed a close alliance with that medium.
Many generations of Dutch people often had their ears close to the speakers of their radio during the summer holidays, from which the enthusiastic report of the Tour de France was heard by reporters such as Jan Cottaar and Theo Koomen. A strong bond has also developed between the medium of television and the Tour de France. All stages of the Tour will be broadcast live on TV.

Tour 2020 Integrally On Tv At Eurosport And Tv France:
Over the years, more and more Tour stages have been broadcast integrally on TV (literally from start to finish). Since 2017, the TV production company of the Tour de France 2020 live has offered complete live images of all stages of the Tour. The French public broadcaster has indicated that they will broadcast all stages in full, alternating on their channels France 2 and France 3.
In the Netherlands and Flanders, Eurosport also has a contract to broadcast all stages in full live on TV. They will indeed broadcast the Tour de France almost entirely on TV. The Dutch and Flemish public broadcasters, NOS and Sporza, do not broadcast all stages live in full, but the most important stages do.
Nos: Live Broadcasts And The Evening Stage:
Live broadcasts NOS:
Tour de France 2020 live broadcasts of NOS Studio Sport take place on the NPO1 channel. The commentator is Joris van den, Berg. The co-commentators are Maarten Ducrot and Stef Clement. For years, Herbert Dijkstra was the regular commentator of the NOS on the tour missions. In 2020, however, he will skip the Tour de France due to chronic back pain.
More stages live in full:
The weekday broadcasts of the NOS usually start around 2:20 pm, but the 2020 Tour often deviates from this. No fewer than 10 of the 21 stages will be broadcast live in full (from start to finish). The live broadcast usually starts earlier in these integral broadcasts. (An exception to this is the final stage of the Tour, which is also broadcast live in its entirety, but whose start and therefore the broadcast start later.
The Evening Stage 2020:
In 2016, after a year of absence, the program De Avondetappe returned. Until the 2014 Tour, this successful evening program was always presented by Mart Smeets. In 2015, however, the NOS opted for a different type of program: NOS Studio Tour, which was broadcast much earlier in the evening. Since 2016, the NOS has again opted for a late-night talk show that, just like in the past, will be called De Avondetappe.
Tour de France 2020 live will be broadcast again in 2020, with Dione de Graaff and Herman van der Zandt, among others. The broadcasts of the Evening Stage usually start around 9.30 pm. The first broadcast of the Avondetappe will be on August 29 and will start at 22:00 on the channel Nederland 1 (NPO1).
The Tour De France 2020 Live At Sporza (VRT):
Flemish public broadcaster VRT (Sporza) will again devote extensive attention to the Tour de France in 2020. Besides many Belgians, many Dutch also watch the Tour broadcasts of the cycling-loving Sporza daily. The main commentator for the live TV broadcasts of the stages in this Tour is again Michel Wuyts. Sporza’s tour shipments usually start on the Flemish channel one. Sometimes during the Tour broadcast, for example when there is a news program on channel one, people will temporarily switch to the channel Canvas.
Talk show: Vive le vélo:
Flemish public broadcaster VRT (Sporza) will broadcast the talk show ‘Vive le Velo’ every evening during the Tour de France 2020. The presenter of this program is Karl Vannieuwkerke. The broadcasts take place on the channel VRT one. The first broadcast will start on Saturday, August 29, 2020, at approximately 8:50 PM.
The stages of the Tour live on TV and Livestream:
In 2020, Eurosport will broadcast almost all stages of the Tour de France 2020 live in full (from start to finish) live on TV and via Livestream. In several previous editions, they also broadcast the stages live in full, but this was not always visible to the general public, because these live broadcasts in the first week of the Tour de France often only on the subscriber channel Eurosport2 and online Eurosport Player ( Livestream). However, this was often due to the preference for Eurosport1 for Wimbledon, which was usually held partly at the same time as the Tour de France.
However, this will not be the case in 2020 (because of the corona crisis, the entire sports calendar has been changed: Wimbledon will not be held in 2020 at all and the French national cycling round will only start in August). The consequence of this is that many more riders can be seen live in full on Eurosport1. In 2020, the French cycling race will be at the same time as the US Open (tennis), but due to the time difference between the United States and Europe, this is not a big problem in the programming of this sports broadcaster.
After all, most top tennis matches at that American tournament can be watched in the evening and at night for European sports fans, while the stages of the French cycling round are broadcast in the afternoon.
Broadcast schedule of Live: what time and which channel:
What time do the live broadcasts of all rides in the Tour de France 2020 live start on TV and via the Livestream? At the NOS and Sporza, the live TV broadcasts of flat stages often start around 2.30 pm, the broadcasts of the mountain stages usually start earlier. The schedules of their live TV broadcasts are generally the same in terms of times as their schedules for the live stream. At Eurosport, all stages are broadcast in full by live stream and most of the rides can be seen live on TV from the start to the finish. Below you will find the broadcast schedules per week of this Tour de France.
