Take your pick: Among the brands Comcast Corp.’s OLN trademarked recently for its upcoming name change are Victory Channel, Sports Country Channel, Sports Nation Channel, Victory Network, Sports Country Network, Sports Nation Network, Victory TV, Sports Country TV and Sports Nation TV, as well as other combos.

Comcast changed the network’s name from Outdoor Life Network to OLN late last year.

I think they should change it from OLN to OSN. It could stand for "Other Sports Network" or "Our Sports Network". Just a thought, if they're still looking for idea's.

Didn't The Nashville Network evolve into Spike with someting in between?
The Nashville Network> Tnn> ( the national network> Spike... I miss the swamp buggy races myself... and with OLN changing who knows if the Bull riding might disappear due to some comcast exec's whim...

Yeah call it Comcast Sports National.

comcast is in love with themselves anyways...

But they really need to change the name, because the irony in the OLN (which we still associate with outdoor) containing hockey is really bad...

I used to work for CVS pharmacy and my friend asked what that spelled out. Consumer Value Stores. He said I wish I never told him that. LOL

ESPN has a foot hold for sure, a fresh alternative would be nice on a national level.
