Watching the Palio tonight?

Just as last year, and this until 2025, the rights to broadcast the Palio are with La7 and not with the Rai. This obviously has consequences as it cannot be received in abroad.

The new contract between the Consorzio Per La Tutela Del Palio Di Siena and La7 also provides that the broadcast must be streamed. La7 will do this via their website. We’ve been testing this regularly over the last few days and everything seems very stable and the picture is very good. This was also the case last year so it should work. However, some readers noted that it doesn’t always work and that refreshing the page often did wonders. A VPN can also help, of course, but it is a bit more technical…

Alternatives are the live streams of the local channels SienaTV and Canale3. These will be open for the first time ever during the Palio. So there are many options.

Gazzetta di Siena also broadcast all prove via their website. Who knows, they might do the same during the Palio.

What is certain is that there will be live streams. Which one will work best remains to be discovered.

Buon Palio a tutti colori!
