This year, as in the past, you can watch the Tour de France 2017 live on TV as well as a range of devices including smartphones and tablets. Here's the TV schedule and the Tour de France 2017 teams. 

In the UK, you can watch the Tour de France on TV on ITV and Eurosport. You can find the broadcaster for your region on the official Tour de France site by clicking the 'Broadcasters' tab at the top.

How can I watch Tour de France online?

For those in the UK, all live coverage and highlights will be shown on ITV4. If you can't get to a TV, you can watch the channel online in a web browser by going to itv.com/hub/itv4 or via the ITV Hub app, available for iOS, Android and Xbox / Windows mobile.

Of course, you'll need to be in the UK for this to work. If you're outside of the UK and want to watch the ITV4 highlights, you could make use of a VPN. We particularly like PureVPN, but there are plenty of other options as featured in our best VPN 2017 article.

With Eurosport, you need to pay a monthly (£6.99) or yearly (£4.99 per month) subscription to access the official site, uk.eurosportplayer.com

Eurosport is offering live coverage of every single stage, so dedicated Tour de France fans might want to pay £6.99 for a month's subscription.

Below we've listed the TV coverage schedule so you know when to tune in for live streaming.
