NBC Sports Network: An Opportunity For Horse Racing – And Down The Stretch They Come
The long-anticipated change of Versus to the new NBC Sports Network occurred today at 4pm Eastern time, just in time for the NHL’s annual Winter Classic. The re-branded network, along with NBC, will broadcast several of this year’s Kentucky Derby prep races, all three legs of the Triple Crown, and selected telecasts from Saratoga and Keeneland. Additionally, the NBC Sports Network will cover Olympic events, NHL, MLS, the Tour de France, college football and basketball, as well as a variety of sports-centric talk shows to fill out the all-day channel.
