Versus Cable Channel to Become 'NBC Sports Network'

George Doyle/Stockbyte(PHILADELPHIA) -- Cable outlet Comcast plans to bring in the new year with a new name.

The company announced Monday it will be changing the name of its Versus cable channel to reflect its merger with NBC Universal from earlier this year. Beginning January 2, 2012, Versus will be replaced by the name "NBC Sports Network."

Comcast's rebranding efforts will coincide with a primetime schedule of sporting events for the new year, beginning with the NHL Winter Classic January 2 and NBC's Sunday Night Football. The NFL playoffs start January 7 with the Wild Card round.

In January 2011, Comcast acquired a 51 percent stake in NBC Universal from General Electric Co.
