Universal HD and Olympics Channel HD 7/15/17

Effective July 15, 2017 we will be launching the Olympics Channel HD on Digital Preferred in every market that currently carries Universal HD.

On that same day, Universal HD will be ceasing operations.

At this time, we do not plan to launch an SD (standard definition) version of the Olympics Channel.
