NewSport is a defunct American cable and satellite television network that was owned by Rainbow Programming Holdings, a joint venture between the Rainbow Media subsidiary of Cablevision, NBC and Liberty Media.[1] Predating the launch of the originally similar ESPNews by three years, it focused on 24-hour coverage of sports news and analysis.

NewSport debuted on October 1, 1993, replacing SportsChannel America, a national version spun off of Rainbow's SportsChannel regional sports network group.[2] NewSport developed a unique sports ticker, known as the "NewSport Score Box", which debuted in 1995 and provided constantly updated score information on ongoing games and schedules for upcoming sports events at the bottom right of the screen.

The network also aired original programs such as NewSport Talk (a sports discussion program), NewSport Journal, NewSport Tonite (a nightly program featuring news and analysis on the day in sports) and Scoreboard Central (which premiered on April 29, 1995, a 12-hour sports news program that aired on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time).[3]

The network was slow to grow in coverage, with relatively limited carriage on cable system operators besides Cablevision, owner of SportsChannel and NewSport parent Rainbow Media. Ironically, even Cablevision did not give the network full-time coverage as it carried NewSport on the channel slots also occupied by The Weather Channel on some of their systems through a time-share arrangement. At its peak, NewSport had only about 10 million subscribers nationwide. This slow growth and lack of viewers, combined with the wide distribution and success of ESPNEWS and Rainbow reportedly losing more than $20 million operating the network, resulted in Rainbow Programming Holdings deciding to shut down NewSport on July 9, 1997.[4]

American Sports Classics

American Sports Classics is a network that focused on sports nostalgia programming; it was originally set to launch after NewSport ceased operations on July 9, 1997, however its launch was postponed "indefinitely" for a time, after Rainbow Media transferred control of the network to Fox/Liberty Networks, a joint venture between News Corporation, Liberty Media and Cablevision created after News Corporation acquired a 40% stake in Cablevision's sports properties for $850 million in June 1997.[5] When it launched that fall, the network featured a broad mix of biographical and magazine-style programs.

ASC's format contrasted with the similarly focused Classic Sports Network (which later became ESPN Classic), which at the time mostly showed archived sports event telecasts. Indeed, the reason why the launch was postponed in the first place was due to problems Rainbow faced in trying to obtain the rebroadcast rights to sporting events from the major professional and collegiate sports leagues or their broadcast partners, forcing American Sports Classics to rely on the magazine and biographical programs.[6] Like NewSport, ASC was unable to stand up to its competitors, specifically Classic Sports Network. The network ceased operations in mid-1998, shortly after SportsChannel discontinued operations upon its merger with Fox Sports Net.

Noticias Univision

Noticias Univision (Spanish pronunciation: [noˈtisjas uniβiˈsjon], Spanish for Univision News) is the news division of Univision, an American Spanish language broadcast television network that is owned by the Univision Television Group division of Univision Communications. The news division is based out of the network's facilities, referred to as the "NewsPort", in the Miami suburb of Doral, Florida, which it shares with sister English language cable news channel Fusion and Univision's flagship owned-and-operated station WLTV-DT.

The division's flagship program is Noticiero Univision, composed of two nightly evening newscasts (airing in the early and late evening) focusing on international news and stories of relevance to the network's main target demographic of Hispanic and Latino Americans. Other programs produced by the news division include morning news-talk show ¡Despierta América!, newsmagazine series Primer Impacto and Aquí y Ahora, and Sunday morning political affairs program Al Punto con Jorge Ramos.

Noticias Univision maintains bureaus located at many of the network's television stations across the United States (particularly those owned by parent subsidiary Univision Television Group, that serve as owned-and-operated stations of the network) and throughout Latin America. Noticiero Univision also has news share agreements with many of the national broadcast networks in those same nations and will often carry their footage and reporting with credit. Noticias Univision uses content from Mexico-based broadcaster (and Univision's major content partner) Televisa, Venezuela-based Venevision, Colombia-based RCN TV, Peru-based América Televisión, and CNN en Español.

Noticiero Univision

Noticiero Univision (Spanish pronunciation: [notiˈsjeɾo uniβiˈsjon]; Spanish for Univision News) is the flagship daily evening television news program of Noticias Univision, the news division of the American Spanish language broadcast television network KMEX-DT. First aired in 1986 for Spanish International Network, the program provides a general rundown of the day's headlines, with a story focus that skews more towards events occurring in Latin America; story content relating to the United States on the program centers on news stories and issues of utmost importance to Hispanic and Latino Americans (with reports focusing on immigration and diplomatic relations with Latin America highlighted regularly, as well as issues relating to government, healthcare and economic issues).

Since 1988, the flagship early-evening broadcast has been co-anchored by Jorge Ramos and María Elena Salinas; the program's late-evening edition, Noticiero Univision: Edición Nocturna (Spanish for Univision News: Late Edition), is currently anchored by Ilia Calderón (who has served as anchor of that edition since 2009) and Enrique Acevedo (who joined the program in 2012). The program's weekend editions, Noticiero Univision: Fin de Semana (Spanish for Univision News: Weekend), are currently co-anchored by Félix de Bedout (who joined the program in 2011) and Arantxa Loizaga (who became co-anchor in 2014).

The two evening programs are respectively broadcast live at 6:30 and 11:35 p.m. Eastern Time and Pacific Time seven nights a week (with a rebroadcast at 4:30 a.m. Eastern and Pacific). In addition, the parent Noticias Univision division airs co-branded hourly, one-minute news capsules under the title Breve Informativo de Noticiero Univision (Spanish for Univision News Brief) that air during commercial breaks – except those featured during the early- and late-evening newscasts – throughout the broadcast day on the network.

The program is based out of Noticias Univision's "NewsPort" facilities in Doral, Florida.
