NBCUniversal has revealed that it plans to rename one of its cable channels, reports Multichannel News.
According to Dick Ebersol, NBC Sports Group chairman, the national cable sports network Versus, which was once known as the Outdoor Life Network, will get a new name that will "have a strong utilization of NBC in the title."
Ebersol confirmed the upcoming change during a conference call about NBC’s new deal with the NHL. The new name for the channel was not revealed.
The name change does not come as a surprise, as the possibility of renaming Versus arose during the runup to Comcast’s takeover of NBCUniversal.
