NBC will shut down the NBC Sports Network at the end of the year.
NBC Sports Chairman Pete Bevacqua announced the move Friday in an internal memo to staff.
“At the conclusion of 2021, we have decided that the best strategic next step for our Sports Group and the entire Company is to wind down NBCSN completely,” Bevacqua said in the memo.
NBC Sports Network is best known for carrying NHL and English Premier League games as well as NASCAR and IndyCar races. It also carries a significant amount of programming during the Olympics.
NBC will parcel out events between USA Network and its Peacock streaming service.
