DENVER (AP) - After more than two years of negotiations, the U.S. Olympic Committee is ready to introduce a network devoted solely to Olympic sports.

Details about the "U.S. Olympic Network" will be unveiled Wednesday, though a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press the network will go on the air next year after the Vancouver Olympics and that Comcast will be the broadcast partner, with plans to place the network on one of its basic tiers.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the deal have not been released.

The USOC has been touting the Olympic network as a way to keep Olympic sports in front of viewers for more than only a few weeks during an Olympic year.
