This makes me nuts.  The Olympics are coming.  I'm even willing to pay extra for it, but have no idea how to go about this.  Any ideas?


It should not make you nuts, NBC has already announced they are NOT using this channel as part of their olympic broadcasts. The biggtest reason for that is because nobody except DISH carries the channel.

Yes NOT happy at all...have been missing all of the 2013 Giro di Italia, will probably miss the Tour de France and the Vuelta a Espana as well this Season.

Signed up with Verizon and FIOS because they offered these Events On their Universal Sports  channel, but now.....????

 

I don't know, we'll probably end up going to DISHTV so as not to miss the Olympics too...

Universal Sports does NOT carry the Olympics or the Tour de France.  Those are on NBC Sports Network, channel 590.

 

Universal Sports does carry the Giro di Italia, the Vuelta a Espana, and a good part of the Olympic Trials.

I am watching the Giro d'Italia on beIN Sports, channel 598 on Verizon FIOS.  This is a fairly new channel and for me it's in the Ultimate HD package.

Re: Loss of Universal sports programming

I signed up with Verizon thinking I'd have access to Universal Sports.  World Athletics Track and field Championships are here and i cannot see it.  Had I known Universal was not available I would have signed up elsewhere.  Please get Universal Sports back on the air.  Thank you.

Yes, but no, because we should be able to sign in to the web site with our cable provider, but since Verizon FIOS is no longer providing us that channel, we cannot sign in properly. This is not good enough.

Re: Loss of Universal sports programming

Hey. Just now discovered Ultimate HD FIOS TV package includes Sports Pass, which includes UNIVERSAL SPORTS HD (USHD) -- channel 596. A customer service agent called me back afterr initial confusion to let me know -- if the channel says you're not subscribed, press the blue key, reboot, and if it still doesn't work, call Verizon. They'll do it for you. If you're paying for it, you should be getting it! (P.S. OTOH, he said they were rolling it out, so where I live it had been available since the 19th of September.)
