While watching the hockey game this evening the above was mentioned by the announcers. Wonder if they will incorporate Universal Sports.

Universal Sports is becoming more of a cable/satco channel on 1/1 and no longer being an OTA subchannel

I got an email a couple of weeks ago saying that I might not be able to get it after 1/1. I can sometimes get it over a very distant local. Will be interesting to see what 151 carries after 1/2

151 will still be Versus (NBC Sports Net)

Universal Sports will be dropped if you have it OTA
On September 12, 2011, it was announced that Universal Sports would convert to being exclusively distributed to cable and satellite providers, and would no longer operate as an over-the-air digital multicast network beginning in early 2012,[6] not long after NBC Universal was bought by Comcast and took over operations of Versus. On the month before the announcement happened, in August 2011, DirecTV became the first provider to carry Universal Sports as a basic network.

Hopefully they crank up the bandwidth because even the master feed on big dish (C-Band) looks not the best (bandwidth starved)

So what are the chances of NBC Sports being caried in a lower programming package (i.e. AT 120 or Sports Multipack?)

Probably got it off Buffalo WGRZ 2.2?
