With Comcast being part owner of NBC, they made it official that Universal Sports will be a pay TV only channel (meaning only available to cable & satellite companies) on January 1. I haven't heard what will be done with 5.3 & the bandwidth. If WMAQ-TV & other NBC O&O stations decide not to replace the subchannel, WMAQ may just allocate the bandwidth for mobile TV, though they really need it for the main channel, since it looks like crap. With that in mind, Nonstop will be reformatted for a national audience in the new year. Who knows what programs stay, & which ones go, as part of a national launch to compete with Livewell Network . At least they're not trying to make it HD like ABC has with Livewell Network on their O&O stations.
