I’ve always found it weird and a bad fit that NBC and Fox use their business networks for overflow sports programming. 
 

I agree that it's not necessarily a good fit, but it makes sense because FBN and CNBC rarely have live programming on the weekends so it's easier to pre-empt the repeats/infomercials  they air (which probably don't get many viewers) than whatever their sister networks are airing.

First off, let’s pump the brakes a bit about NBCSN closing - the article cited is making predictions for 2021, it’s not a guarantee. The reasons given for closing it down makes sense, but it’s an info

That's weird. NBCS Chicago has used theirs occasionally for breaking news and programming announcements, even after dumping it for scores and headlines. No reason why it should be completely scrubbed

I may be a little late with this but NBCSN updated some of their graphics for Premier League. Saw some updates this past weekend including the Sports ticker.

Uh, for those talking about "PARAMOUNT NETWORK" remember THAT will be rebranded as Paramount Movie Network in 2021, 

oh and EL REY Network signs off on dec. 31st 

 

This is why Bellator MMA moved to CBSSN.

I think CNBC is a much better fit than MSNBC. MSNBC aired Premier League Soccer, 2 years ago and it ticked off much of MSNBC'S audience looking for AM Joy.

As for why business networks were used for overflow sports programming, that’s simple - they had greater penetration, especially CNBC.

I believe the only reason NBCSN would close would be in the even they lose NHL and/or EPL.

Plus it's worth noting that NBC still have the rights to the Olympics besides the Premier League and NHL

But they also have the Olympic Channel, which I assume would play a bigger role if NBCSN does get axed.

I found a new potential factor in the future of NBCSN, Comcast is looking to relaunch G4 in 2021, with that, they may need NBCSN's transponder space in order to make this happen and possibly justifying NBCSN's current programming moving to USA, CNBC, or Peacock.

On their own website, it says G4 is a digital first network, which means it's likely going to be a live channel on Peacock and possibily a live stream on Twitch and Youtube. Why they heck would they want to put a gamer-first channel on a distribution platform their audience is moving away from?

 

Is there a particular fetish here for NBCSN to go away or something?

G4'S audience doesn't need cable or satellite. Some of NBCSN'S audience does. G4 would make a great live stream for YouTube.

I am actually predicting that Golf Channel will go off first (and golf coverage be merged into NBCSN) before NBCSN goes off completely due to GC closing their Florida studios (relocating to their CT homebase)  and cancelled all of the programming (most notably Morning Drive) and staff with it
