They have been calling it NBC Sports Network, Not NBCSN. The announcements and graphics say NBC Sports Network, Not NBCSN. This channel will be transitioning to calling itself NBCSN, NOT NBC Sports Network. The graphics will say NBCSN, NOT NBC Sports Network. It is a very subtle difference and the transition will happen over the next 6 months.

So the announcers will actually spell it out N B C S N similar to ESPN? Maybe it's just me but that sounds like an awkward mouthful when you say it out loud. I couldn't care less what they call the channel but I do wonder why they would bother.

This is HUGE news :p :D . It will take more than just saying N-B-C-S-N to compete with the giant that's for sure.

This. Saying a five letters as letters is a mouthful, and most people are going to call it "NBC Sports Network" or "NBC Sports" anyway.

Simple. Too many MBAs. People with nothing to do have to do something to justify their existence.
