NBCUniversal’s cable sports network NBCSN will officially be no more on Dec 31.

In January, the company first announced plans to shutter the cable network later this year in an effort to bolster USA Network, which has been shifting away from scripted series and focusing on more sports and reality programming

Some of the biggest properties headed to USA include coverage from the Premier League, Nascar, horse racing and Olympic coverage ahead of the upcoming Winter Olympics.

The cable network will kick off its new sports programming lineup on Jan 1, 2022, bright and early with a New Year’s Day Premier League tripleheader, starting with Arsenal hosting defending champion Manchester City at 7 a.m.
