FPB launches the Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA

FPB today launched the Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA on FPB Preferred Cable channel 144. 


This channel 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.  


This week, the channel presents "Gymnastics Gold Week" with 30 hours of coverage from eight Olympic Games and 2017 world championship action. This special programming beginning Oct. 2 will feature U.S. Medalists ranging from Shannon Miller, Kerri Strug and "The Magnificent Seven" to Nastia Liukin, Gabby Douglas and Simone Biles.  


This addition to FPB's channel lineup is the result of an agreement change with NBC Universal which also removes Chiller (channel 121) from FPB's cable offerings.
