US cycling fans to get Max streaming service to replace GCN+

Successor to GCN+ announced by Warner Bros. Discovery for cycling fans in the United States

US cycling fans get to Max streaming service to replace GCN+

From February next year US cycling fans will be able to watch racing next year on Max, Warner Bros. Discovery's (WBD) streaming platform announced this week.

Races include the Giro d'Italia, the UCI Track Champions League, and the UCI Mountain Bike World Series on Max, inline with the B/R Sports Add-On on the channel.

GCN+ closes on December 19th.

"Live cycling coverage on Max will include more than 300 of the world’s biggest racing events, including the prestigious Giro d’Italia, all race weekends of the UCI Mountain Bike World Series, all rounds of the UCI Track Champions League, 53 Women’s WorldTour  broadcasts, the E3 Saxo Bank Classic, Kuurne–Brussels–Kuurne, and more.

"All in, Max will be the one to watch for U.S. cycling fans, offering more live cycling event coverage throughout the year than any other streaming service."

Subscription to Max costs $9.99 a month with ads, or $15.99 without, with $99.99 or $149.99 bundles also available if you pay for a whole year.

Subscribers will also have access to The Breakaway, the Eurosport-produced pre and post-race coverage which is shown in the UK and across Europe.

A Max subscription also includes "premium live sports content such as the MLB, NHL, NBA, NCAA Men’s March Madness, U.S. Soccer, 24 Hours of Le Mans and a variety of non-live sports programming to appeal to every fan".

There's FloBikes, which will be known to many consumers across North America, which shows a lot of cycling, but not all. It costs US$149.99 / CAN$150 a year or US$29.99 / CAN$29.99 per month.

It has the rights to the UCI World Cup and X2O cyclo-cross events this winter, and the Tour Down Under and AlUla Tour at the beginning of 2024, but not everything.

Meanwhile, NBC and its streaming service PeacockTV has the US rights to some of the other biggest races, like the Tour de France, although it is not comprehensive.
