Confirmed US is gone from FIOS in Boston. Guess its time for an IN subscription.

I'm in South Jersey (Comcast)and checked through next Wednesday and there are all kinds of sports listed..skiing, skating, cycling bobsledding..If I keep US, I'll never post in a Tara/Michelle thread ever again..:P

I'm in south jersey too..I'll be a happy skating fan if US stays :)

The Universal Sports page has been changed to say "Did you lose US?" When you go to that link, it reads -

Unless you have DIRECTV, fill out the form below to tell your TV provider that you want Universal Sports! When you're done, double your voice by calling 1-800-55-GET-US.

I have Comcast here in CT, and I have listings past Jan 1!!

I have Comcast in Chicago and Universal Sports has completely disappeared. :(

Plus tonight, US is airing a skating retrospective for 2011 at 8 PM. When I checked to see whether the guide was updated, there it was.

I have scheduled to record it :)

That's interesting Doris; I also have Comcast in CT but as of Jan 1, 12 midnight my listings say "off air."

I did watch part of the 2011 retrospective and now have Hip Hip Chin Chin stuck in my head.

Found an article about Versus becoming NBC Sports - http://www.tvguide.com/News/Versus-NBC-Sports-1041158.aspx
It indicates that the change to NBC sports will happen on Monday, January 2nd. I think this date may be true for Universal sports as well. So - we may have one last day.

We lost it too.

Apparently, the Guide download was just a teaser.

Sucks big time..

Gone from Comcast in Philly. I am so mad at them... Went to an online chat with a customer rep. to complain. Maybe if we all bombard them...

I have Cablevision on Long Island and we lost UN too.
I do have a question though ... wasn't UN part of the NBC group? I am thinking that maybe the "new" NBC sports network will carry the skating next season. It would seem crazy for them to drop skating when they will be doing the 2014 Olympics and will want to promote it.

Gone. I have Comcast and live near the Boston area. I now have a new channel called LWN which flashes on the screen, even though my on screen listing still says US. There is a slew of programs scheduled for today on LWN sort of like a PBS channel, kid friendly, eco friendly, et al.

A new benefit for people who have DirecTV--you can now sign in to Universal Sports using your DirecTV account, and you no longer have to pay for live/premium streaming events! Just click on the link on the top right corner to sign in.

:cheer2: I do hope either US or Icenetwork makes a last minute deal to show 4CC and or Worlds. Neither is planning to do so at present. :( Neither showed 4cc last year, but I hoped they'd get a contract since it's in the US.

And that new NBC channel is Versus. If your cable package doesn't include it, you won't have it either.
