C Spire is pleased to announce the addition of the Olympic Channel, a brand-new 24 hour sports network featuring the world’s best coverage of olympic sporting events on channel 257.
The Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA presents year-round coverage of Olympic sports from around the world, featuring U.S. athletes and teams. Programming includes live events from a broad portfolio of summer and winter Olympic sports, original series, documentaries and rich archival content.
The Olympic Channel is part of the Standard Pack of channels.
NBCUniversal has made the unfortunate decision to cease broadcasting Esquire (ch. 606) and the Universal HD (ch. 909) networks effective July 1 and July 15th respectively.
Programming from these networks, such as Esquire’s Friday Night Tykes and Universal HD’s USA network reruns will move to other NBCUniversal channels, including Fusion, Bravo, Oxygen, Syfy, and Chiller.
NBCUniversal has promised a new Olympics focused network to launch later this summer. We’ll provide more info about this channel as soon as it becomes available.
So what’s better than non-stop 24/7 olympics coverage? How about two channels 100% dedicated to delivering close to 800 hours of soccer and basketball action!

And starting August 6, 2016, C Spire will launch the 24/7 Basketball channel where you’ll have non-stop hoops and hardwood action as teams from across the globe battle it out for Olympic gold.
