USA Network

USA Network (or simply USA) is an American basic cable channel owned by the NBCUniversal Television and Streaming division of Comcast‘s NBCUniversal through NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. It was originally launched in 1977 as Madison Square Garden Sports Network, one of the first national sports cable television channels, before being relaunched under its current name on April 9, 1980. Since then, USA steadily gained popularity through its original programming, a long-established partnership with WWE and, for many years, limited sports programming that increased significantly in 2022 after the closure of NBCSN.
