Versus Response to DirecTV fiasco

Hi everyone,
Katie from Versus was kind enough to response to my previous blog post about the concerns regarding DirecTV and Versus. It is affecting my hockey viewing, so I wrote about it. Here’s her response:

It’s Katie and I work at VERSUS. I came across your blog and wanted to post a comment to ensure you had all the relevant information regarding VERSUS and DirecTV.

DirecTV chose to remove VERSUS from its lineup on September 1 and since then has been depriving millions of sports fans from seeing all of VERSUS’ marquee programming, including the start of the 2009/10 NHL regular season. Again, DirecTV dropped VERSUS, not the other way around.

DirecTV continues to claim that VERSUS is asking for a rate increase. It is simply not true. The fact is that VERSUS offered DirecTV the exact same deal they had before they dropped the network, which means that they can carry VERSUS at no additional cost and at the same level of distribution that they had in the past.

On the flip side, they demanded a deal that would place VERSUS on a tier, removing the channel from subscribers who were getting it at no additional cost. DirecTV would then force those subscribers to pay an additional fee to get access to VERSUS.

We are very frustrated that they have chosen to deny you, and millions of other NHL fans, access to VERSUS.

I hope this clarifies the situation for you. And please know that VERSUS is doing everything possible to get a deal worked out with DirecTV as quickly and as amicably as possible.
