For our skiing fans: Since the beginning of 2012, we have been working to finalize distribution deals with TV providers under our new business model. This effort is on-going and we are working as hard as we can to provide access to fans of our Skiing and Olympic Sports coverage. We know that many of you can’t get the channel right now, and we share your disappointment and frustration. Our situation is a reflection of the demands of the TV industry, and USN must follow these rules in order to bring content to our viewers.
