NBC Sports Network announced on Friday that it would be shutting down by the end of 2021.
According to CNN, USA Network–another NBCUniversal owned network–will begin “carrying and/or simulcasting certain NBC Sports programming” later this year.
The shift includes the National Hockey League and NASCAR races.
The streaming platform Peacock, which NBCUniversal also owns, will also pick up some of the programming that was initially on the NBC network.
“We’re all aware of how quickly the media landscape is evolving, and our company is taking thoughtful steps to stay ahead of these trends wherever possible and, in many instances, help set them,” said the memo from NBCUniversal, a company owned by Comcast (CMCSA).
The shutdown gives USA Network more power, making it “an extraordinarily powerful platform in the media marketplace.”
Considering the USA is the most popular network of NBCUniversal, it seems for too add sports to the channel.
