Network will feature more access to Olympic sports year-round.
The US Olympic Committee (USOC) has announced a plan to launch an Olympic television channel after the 2010 Vancouver Games. The channel will be called the US Olympic Network, and will be broadcast through a combined effort with cable provider Comcast.
Currently, the plan is to show various sporting events from non-traditionally televised Olympic sports, as well as feature stories, news shows and documentary programing. Although sports like curling and team handball will certainly find a home on the USOC channel, major Olympic sports such as track and field and swimming will likely stay on major cable stations, such as NBC, due to their high revenue values.
