Universal Domestic Television was formed on May 28, 2002 after Vivendi Universal bought out the assets of Studios USA Television and merged the assets with the former Universal Worldwide Television to form the domestic distribution division of the company. It was absorbed into NBC Universal Television Distribution in 2004.
