NBCU, WCSN Team for Universal Sports

Jun 16, 2008  •  Post A Comment

NBC Sports and World Championship Sports Network are uniting to create Universal Sports, a multiplatform destination for athletes and fans.
The joint effort hopes to bring NBC Universal programming to WCSN’s established online Olympics audience. The partnership followed NBCU’s acquisition of a significant stake in WCSN, which it will jointly control with InterMedia Partners.
“Universal Sports will provide a terrific year-round home to almost all Olympic sports and the athletes who give our viewers such compelling stories,” Dick Ebersol, chairman of NBC Universal Sports, said in a statement Monday.
Universal Sports content will be available in both television network and online platform formats. It will premiere diving and gymnastic events June 19 and 20, providing live early-round coverage of the Olympic Trials for the first time.

  2. Who carries this channel? I have looked into it and Comcast and AT&T(partnered w/ Dish Network) do not offer this channel. Nor do they offer the World championship sports channel. How can I get this channel?

  3. Cablevision carries it on channel 110.

  4. Hey does Comcast carry this channel ? what channel is it under comcast if it does?

  5. It is available on some select cable systems as well as on some digital sub-channels in select markets. WNBC Ch 4 in NYC and WRGB Ch. 6 in Albany for instance carry the channel on one of their digital sub-channels.

  9. I have a new flat screen TV, purchased at Christmas. It is not hooked up to Cable, so right now I am watching World Championship speed skating on UNIVERSAL SPORTS, which is carried by one of the For the past week, I have been indulging in watching ski jumping. It seems every sport involved is being held in a different venue all over Europe. France built a new ski jump facility, investing millions of dollars for it. Come on, U.S. let the people see these events. Last night I was Anton Appolo Ohno and his team mates win the 3,000 meter – 5 man relay. It was awesome. I am a 73 year European woman and grew up immersed in sports. If you don’t follow football, or baseball here, you are pretty much left out of the loop.

  14. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
