    Hopefully NBCSN or BeIN will pick up the Tour Down Under, the Vuelta a Espana, and the other cycling events that have been on Universal Sports.

    Bandwidth is not the issue. Whether TVG2 is carried is all about the contract.

    Somewhat off topic, but since TVG bought HRTV, will the Churchill Downs, Inc. owned tracks be back on TVG?

    That is good news only if DirecTV moves Universal HD to the sports pack. I could receive Universal Sports, but I do not receive Universal HD.
