Speaking of things that NBC owns, how is it that the local Comcast
systems stopped carrying Universal Sports after it was pulled from
broadcast at the end of the year?  That would seem to be a no-brainer,
and presumably a direct feed wouldn't suck nearly as much as
WBIN-TV's.  Surely it's in Comcast's interest to carry a service that
they own 19.6% of.
