Some viewers may lose access to the channel

View Comments ()



    Effective January 1, 2012, Universal Sports Network, which is currently an over-the-air digital multicast channel, will transition its distribution model to be exclusively available to viewers through cable and satellite providers. 

    Currently, DirecTV is the only video provider that carries Universal Sports.  As a result, some viewers may lose access to the channel. 

    The details below are intended to provide additional information and answer questions viewers may have.

    What happened to Universal Sports Network and why is it no longer available?
    As of January 1, 2012, Universal Sports Network transitioned from an over-the-air digital multicast channel to a network exclusively available to viewers through their cable or satellite provider.  This was a decision made by Universal Sports Network.

    With the Olympics coming up, how can I still watch Universal Sports programming?
    You should contact your cable or satellite provider to see if they offer it on your local lineup.

    I checked with my cable provider and they don’t offer it.  What else can I do?
    You can contact Universal Sports.  They have set up the following email address: keepus@universalsports.com.

    Will KNSD add another digital channel in its place?
    At this time KNSD has decided that we will not add another channel in its place.
