Universal Sports Network announced it has a distribution deal in place with Cox Communications.
Cox is offering Universal Sports Network’s Olympic, endurance and adventure sports programming to its Cox Advanced TV subscribers. The multi-year deal also granted Cox TV Everywhere rights.
Cox will continue to roll out Universal Sports Network in HD as part of its new Sports Pak 2 tier over the next several months, and it’s currently accessible in Cox markets serving Oklahoma, Ohio, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Omaha, Sun Valley and Kansas.
“Cox is committed to providing our customers with the content that’s important to them,” said Christine Martin, director of communications for Cox Oklahoma. “With the addition of Universal Sports Network, our customers will be able to view their favorite global sports programming whenever and wherever they want.”
Universal Sports Network coverage includes World Aquatics Championships, the Boston Marathon, Alpine Ski World Cup, World Figure Skating Championships, Vuelta a España, Kona Ironman and Rugby Sevens World Cup.
“We are excited to partner with Cox Communications on the distribution of our exclusive global sports programming,” said Scott Brown, president of Universal Sports. “We look forward to serving Cox customers with world-class coverage on multiple platforms and devices as we continue to grow the reach of our network.”
Universal Sports is a partnership between Comcast’s NBC Sports and InterMedia Partners.
