is Xfinity shutting down NBCSN channel at end of 2021?

Read in SportsMediaWatch that NBCSN (my ch.71)  will be removed as a channel, and its' programming to shift to USA and Peacock? Any truth to this? Thanks.

What does that have to do with Cable or Xfinity?

Uh.. because its' comcast/xfinity making the decision to do this, and they're our/my cable company...

also, you know that they're going to move more to peacock, and that, eventually, peacock premium will no longer be free. Let us all remember the 'free' DTA (digital adapter box) that now costs $7/month.

Everything. Internet streaming is replacing cable before our eyes.

Netflix, HBO Max, Peacock, Paramount Plus, Disney Plus, Discovery Plus.

NBCSN (among the top 40 most watched channels) will be the first of many live tv channels shutting down over next few years.
