    Versus Returns to DIRECTV

    Versus has returned to the DIRECTV channel lineup, available to DIRECTV customers on channel 603 in standard and high definition. Sports fans can now enjoy more sports than ever on DIRECTV.

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif. and PHILADELPHIA, March 15, 2010 –– DIRECTV and Comcast have reached an agreement to return VERSUS to the DIRECTV programming lineup today. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    VERSUS will return to the same DIRECTV programming packages it was in at the end of August 2009.

    "We are pleased that both sides were able to work out a satisfactory deal to bring this programming back to our customers," said Derek Chang, executive vice president, Content Strategy and Development, DIRECTV.

    We're excited that we were able to come to a fair agreement that puts VERSUS back in millions of homes with DIRECTV in time for our busy spring programming schedule," said Jamie Davis, president of VERSUS. "We look forward to super–serving these fans with NHL regular–season and playoff coverage, our first live UFC event and much more."

    Glad to hear it. I was worried about being able to see the playoff games on Versus. You know we'll be on there a ton.

    Unfortunately.

    Last year was some of the worst and blatantly biased television I've seen (the playoffs coverage on Versus). I mean, when we were playing the Flyers and Comcast (who owns the Flyers) had everyone in the studio and announcing the game in black suits with orange ties... it's bad

    Yeah hopefully we can avoid the Philly matchup again and not because I think they'll beat us. Maybe we can get the Canadiens and won't be on VS as much.

    On a side note, has a team ever won their division while getting swept in the season series by the 2nd place team? We might make history.

    You guys are just saving all all the goals for the playoffs if you meet them. You'll kick their asses, and they won't know what hit 'em

    Glad to see Versus back on Directv.

    Unlike quite a few of you all that are lucky enough to get the games on tv regularly, I'm at the mercy of NHLN, which doesn't seem to carry the Pens often at all. Versus back in the lineup offers another opportunity for me... Yea, there is always an on-line feed, but it is much much nicer to see them on the television.

    And as said, it's going to make viewing the playoffs much easier.

    If we get matched against another American team/city we'll probably be on VS or NBC every game. Especially if it's a big market like Philly or Boston.

    I'm just glad they got it settled so I can watch from home.
