Versus returns to DirecTV today

After discussing it for over six months DirecTV and Comcast finally came to an agreement to get Versus back on the satellite’s lineup. DirecTV says Comcast wanted more money for the Versus feed, and Comcast argued DirecTV wanted to cut the channel’s potential audience almost in half from 14 million households. Meanwhile, hockey fans with DirecTV were unable to watch the NHL on Versus.

“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.

Versus is a sports-related channel launched in 1995 that is offered in both SD (480i) and HD (1080i). Programming includes NHL coverage, IndyCar Series, College Football, Americas Cup, UFC, UFL and the Tour de France.

Versus can be found on DirecTV Channel 603 and Dish Network Channel 151. For cable subscribers, check your channel guide for listings.
