UniversalSports indicates that Verizon FIOS may soon drop their programming from its standard line-up. I hope this does not happen since UniversalSports provides unique programming, like World Cup Skiing, that is simply not available through any other outlet.
Look around its a change by Universal Sports
"Universal Sports is transitioning from an over-the-air multicast channel to what it calls a "multi-platform, high definition service" on pay television, starting in Jan. 2012"
As such its not clear who will be carrying them. So far they only list "DirecTv".
It was carried as a OTA subchannel of NBC.
They, the owners of Universal Sports, have decided not to offer that way so it is soon be gone OTA, and for those cable/satellite providers who provided it as a local channel.
Universal Sports is now being offered only as a premium Cable channel. For now only Directv has picked it up.
Programming for the 2012 London Olympics will be available on a myriad of channels broadcast 24/7 including NBC, USA, CNBC, MSNBC, Mun2, SyFy and the newly renamed NBC Sports (formerly VERSUS) as well as online at NBC.com and other live streaming portals.
