Going back to last year, a thread discussed the possibility of DISH picking up Universal Sports Network(USN), since it is not available OTA in all markets. I had been in the OTA coverage area for USN, but this morning, even though the program grid still showed it as a sub-channel of the NBC suite of channels for the Los Angeles area, the screen was dark. It is my understanding that only DirecTV has it via satellite, I have no idea which cableco's carry it.

Hoping DISH will pick it up, but based on the thread from last summer, does not look good.

Universal Sports is a seperate channel with seperate programming. It is going from OTA distribution to cable/satellite. So far DirecTV is thr only provider to pick it up.

I never quite figured out Universal Sports, everytime I tuned in it was showing highlights from the Olympics. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason to what was being aired.

They showed a lot of Olympic sports. Skiing, bobsled, luge, ice skating, etc in winter. Lots of repeats, but often same day competition. In summer they carried cycling, etc. That's what I miss. There was a way to watch online, but that went away also. I miss it.

I WAS a big fan of Universal Sports OTA - cycling in the summer and skiing in the winter. I expect them to carry a lot of Olympics coverage this summer. It was great while it lasted (free). DirecTV requires you to buy the Sports Pack for $13/mo to get it. Thanks Comcast, see ya later.
