    Re: universal sports gone from cable affiliates !

    az keep us posted. i definitely want to watch the diamond league meets and on friday mornings (west coast time) where i go number of them take place i am at work so i cant do live streaming there. i am hoping they are on ncb and nbcsn.
    as far as nbcsn goes the only thing they have i am interested in are the olympic events and some of the mls games. i dont watch the nhl either, the only hockey i watch is during the olympics.
    BTW has anyone seen that idiotic commercial for directv which goes if u cable u get frustrated, then take out your agression, then accidents happen, then u get an eye patch which makes people think you are tough and people want to find out how tough, then you wind up in a roadside ditch: drop cable get directv - sorry but this commercial is one of the dumbest EVER !

    nbc xports net has the OLYMPIC trials marathon trials 4-6 pm eastern on sunday

    first official TRACK on their new channel

    suspect diamond league stuff needs to be viewed on PC or DIRECT TV if you want same day coverage

    hockey/cycling execs, i don't trust

    saw that too. nbc has the "premiere" for the event on saturday 3-5 pm edt/ 12n-2 pm pdt.
    still not live, but i dont ever recall olympic marathon trials being live. in 2008 they were a 30 min highlight show broadcast a day later, in 1996 they were same day tape just like this year, dont remember 2000 and 2004.
    also read that universal sports is trying to sign on with some cable carriers by the end of the year and their goal is to be on 20 million homes (as opposed to 40 million homes when they were OTA channel).

    as to the races

    men: hall, ritz,meb are the strong favs

    women: flanagan, rhines, gourcher, davila, boulet, kastor

    shalene should make the team, but the last 2 slots could be any one of 5

    This whole changing of the guard thing is confusing, since the local cable company never mentioned that Versus is now NBCSC

    In my neighborhood, all online program directories (TV Guide, Zap2It) list the VS channel now as NBCSP.

    In 1984 the men's race was live. But then those were the glory days of track and road races on TV.
