NBC Sports is the brand used for sports programming on the NBC television network. Formerly "a service of NBC News," it broadcasts a diverse array of programs, including the Olympic Games (through 2012), the NFL, the NHL, Notre Dame football, the PGA Tour, the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness, the USGA Championships, Wimbledon, and the French Open, among others. Other programming from outside producers is also presented on the network under the NBC Sports branding (such as coverage of the Ironman Triathalon).

In 2008, NBC Universal rebranded the digital subchannel network World Championship Sports Network as Universal Sports after taking a controlling stake in the channel. Universal Sports mostly presents coverage of athletics events which are part of the Olympic Games.

On June 14, 2009, NBC Sports announced an agreement with Profootballtalk.com, one of the leading NFL news sites on the internet, that they have purchased the content rights beginning July 1, 2009.
