    I note that Universal has stopped posting their online TV schedule. I thought ti was just because they were behind on things but then I went to the Figure Skating page. There is still a Video schedule, but there is no longer a link for TV viewing - or a schedule. At least I can't find one.

    The TV listings page (http://www.universalsports.com/tv-listings/index.html) appears that it is not being updated, but TV schedule information for figure skating is still here:

    Universal Sports TV schedule for Grand Prix Final
    Universal Sports Figure Skating Viewers Guide

    I guess you can also check online programming guides like tvguide.com to see what they are planning to show.

    I'm also in DC and have Comcast. You've not gotten any notices that it's being dropped yet, have you?

    Hope not.

    There have been announcements on NBC during the Sunday broadcast of the ladies of a new "NBC Sports Channel". The ad was with gymnasts, who have been on US. I wonder whether this is going to replace or augment Universal Sports, or whether both are just going to coexist?

    The "VERSUS" Channel is becoming the NBC Sports Channel.
    If you already have that channel in your array, you may not have to do anything.
    I'm also hoping that it will cover skating...fingers crossed.

    I have a vague memory of someone mentioning an additional NBC sports channel - maybe it was earlier in this thread.

    Found it -

    Both Universal Sports and NBC Universal's more fully distributed sports network Versus (which becomes NBC Sports Network come January 1), will air some Olympics programming next summer, as well as other NBC Universal networks and platforms.
    It's from an article LynnW posted about earlier http://www.mediapost.com/publications/article/158377/

    I mentioned it in the "Commentary" thread.
    BTW, I believe it was first announced during the broadcast of "RISE", on Versus.

    I think you can keep Hope..Universal Sports has been running a wordcraw at the bottom of the screen giving names of cable providers who may be droping the channel on Jan 1 2012 and Comcast WAS one of them (((BUT))) has since has been taking off the craw..

    Cablevision,Cox,Charter, and Fios are still there however..

    Yes, I noticed that, and have great hopes that Universal will still exist on Comcast, and that I will still be able to get it.

    As I mentioned a few posts above, I was told by the marketing manager of the DC office of COMCAST "You'll should have nothing to worry" about on this. In other words, it looks like it stays in DC, as a cable option (not free, off-the-air).

    re. VERSUS/NBCSports Channel - Someone above said they hope that this channel will cover skating. They will - HOCKEY!

    I hope your Comcast person knows what they're talking about.

    So do I (Comcast in Philly suburb area). I actually watch most of my skating on the internet these days, but I do catch some of the rebroadcasts on US and watch lots of other sports on there.

    I've gotten really into watching the Alpine Ski season on US the last couple of years. Now if only they'd get snow in Europe and stop having to cancel events...

    Another Comcast subscriber crossing fingers. Plus I'm dying for hi def, so if that happens it'd make me *very* happy. And I've been liking alpine skiing too.

    I called Comcast last week and the rep told me that we would be losing US the first of the yr. However, she did say that Comcast was still in negotiations re: US. I'm in Southern NJ.

    Your information sounds accurate. I'm thinking that Comcast, at least, will contract to add Universal as a subscription channel in their line-up (as opposed to being offered as a sub-station by the local NBC affiliate). My worry is that this contract will happen in the spring sometime (with London in mind) and we will lose the most important part of the figure skating season.

    Verizon FIOS

    Does anyone have any new info on Verizon FIOS still to carry Universal Sports? It seems no one wants to leak any info to us FIOS customers for fear we will cancel FIOS.

    I've been watching Sking today and Universal Sports has been running a message at the bottom of the screen saying if you have Verizon FIOS you may be losing it on Jan 1 2012..

    So it looks like Verizon has not yet signed an agreement to carry it....Cox' Cablevision and Charter as well...

    We live in Phila., PA, and our service is from Comcast. So will we be losing
    US coverage as of mid January or not?
