Not a hockey fan (happy that you are) and never watched Versus anyway.
Don't miss it.
Hell no I won't be cancelling D* over this. Not even close.
Don't miss it, but it begs a question, I sure DTV has the numbers to show the percentage of customers that viewed Versus on a daily basis and maybe it didn’t justify more dollars to keep it…my 2 cents…
This is my position as well.
A bigger issue for me is no MSG HD on center ice
Maybe the poll should be reworded.
"If you miss the VS. channel because of NHL Hockey, will you cancel if it's not back within the first month of the season?"
A lot may vote no because they don't care about Versus programming. That's fine. I'm not interested in ESPNU. That doesn't mean it isn't important. It's just not important to me.
I voted no; however, I'll probably suspend my account before the playoffs start and trial another provider.
I voted no, but I'll just add TWC for the Playoffs to watch Detroit make their run. NHL-CI gives me 73 Detroit games, which is more than enough.
I think I watched two college football games on Versus last year -- not in HD, not very good PQ.
I won't miss the channel.
dont follow hockey much..
but I am missing the WEC.. which is basically the UFC for the lighter weight classes. Hopefully the WEC can get off Vs and find another network (like spiketv)..
I voted no but hope this gets resolved soon for the few college football games on Versus I might want to watch in addition to the hockey games. I almost added Center Ice last season but didn't know how much I would watch it. I already have Sunday Ticket, League Pass, Extra Innings, and March Madness. Besides the cost, it's tough to watch everything I have now.
I won't miss VS. until playoff time when from round 3 on you can ONLY watch the games on VS. If it's not back by then, I may very well consider other options.
I want VS back on as soon as possible, but wouldn't drop D* over it. Especially since when I returned my DVR's to the TW cable office, they never turned off my basic cable. So I can at least watch VS in SD. My Sabres have several games I would like to see in HD and even more important is the playoffs in HD.
Dana White runs WEC as well if I'm correct. What he should do with WEC is try to see if FSN would like a piece the action as far as carrying it. I think they carry some UFC stuff anyhow as does Spike. Also he should try and get a contract with CBS/Viacom if there isn't one in place already with another UFC type company to replace the one that went bust last year. As far as IRL hope their contract has an out and beg ESPN or even NBC take them back. 2 problems solved. Far as the NHL, screw em they created this mess let them lay in it. Better yet, put me in the room let me negotiate. I'd have Versus dark before sundown.
Never watched VS before, don't miss it
I think I've watched maybe 10 minutes of Vs. in total since it's been on, I won't miss it at all.
I plan on doing the same thing here for Pittsburgh games. NHLCI will be enough for me 70+ Pens games and if this is still going on come playoff time then will add Verizon FiOS for TV. But as much as this whole situation annoys me there is no way that I would cancel D*.
Seems to me that if directv has NHL Center Ice (which it does), doesn't that show you more hockey than was covered on Vs correct? Why cancel directv because one channel is gone?
VS is not a concern. So I voted no.
