Default Tour Down Under Coverage

Who's been watching the Tour Down Under coverage on the tele this year?
What do you think of it?

Phil Liggett & Paul Sherwin seem to be very professional. No matter who
they are broadcasting for, they seem to tune their presentation to suit.
Just the way that they slip in the 'there is this business, whose name
is ..., who can ... for you'. It seems almost like the days when radio
shows slipped in announcements for their sponsors.

Was it me, or is there a lot more advertising than compared to what gets
put on for SBS?

The 3rd presenter, what's his name. Is he really like that or is he
playing the part of the casually interested Joe Blow?

(Let's get some discussion going.)

Lets start unfortunately I have been away and had very limited TV.

What I miss is there are no castles or villas but they slip to a place
in town which has been pre recorded.

There are adverts on SBS and more prevalent now.

One of the reasons I watch le Tour is for those excellent aerial
country shots.

Yes, I missed seeing the various villas and castles, but I thought at
least some vineyards could have been shown.
The prerecorded town segments seemed somewhat clunky, but not as bad as
Gabriel Gate's efforts in July.

But not as prevalent as on WIN. I would just get settled into a segment
and there would be a break for advertising.

Yes, South Australia in January is so very brown. It is no match for
verdant fertility of France in July.
Sigh. Now I'm feeling withdrawal symptoms of the annual P&P TdF show.
