    I expected them to offer something to "retain" a 16-year D* veteran since that IS their job. After I informed them that CI was of no use or interest to me. They may as well have offered me a pile of moldy fishsticks. No attempt to "retain" me was made. Thus they didn't do their job. Gee, a D* CSR not doing their job. THAT's never happened before!

    Just got Center Ice for free and the rep basically said they are allowed to give to anyone. He asked what I watched on Versus and I said mostly hockey and was disapointed I couldn't watch opening night tonight. He said, I can give you the Center Ice package for free. I said AWESOME and thank you very much!:grin:

    You can tell that they are getting a ton of calls about this tonight. You get an automated message about the Versus/DirecTV situation before you can do anything else. This was not the case this afternoon, but it is being played tonight.

    Yep.....just said cancel when it asked what I wanted. Told the rep when he answered I was upset I couldn't watch hockey tonight on Versus. He said we are able to offer you the package and credit the price. I said AWESOME!

    I wouldn't be surprised if C* tries to buy D* or E* one day. Then C* would be everywhere. :eek2:

    D*, just sign the damn contract already! :nono2:

    My lord...I didn't even call about Versus, hockey, or anything of the sort. I called about an order for a replacement receiver. Yet they offered me CI for free. Ummm...sure, I'll take it if you're giving it away.

    One more TIME!!! CSR's and DirecTV have NOTHING to do with no Versus.
    IT'S COMCAST!! Got it! A CSR has no power over COMCAST! You are doing just what COMCAST wants you to do. COMCAST should let DirecTV carry Versus untill they can work something out.

    It's been fine on Comcast in Boston so it might be an isolated issue at one comcast headend or maybe he was just confused.

    As a Bruins fan I almost wish I hadn't seen the game to be honest. Not only was the picture quality absolutely horrible, but the Bruins looked like boys out there.

    Huh? D* insists on this crazy scheme of selling VS as a separate extra-pay tier. Comcast won't allow that ripoff. Comcast is charging D* the same as they charge everybody else and wants them to keep it in a basic tier. Duh. This is nothing but a D* power play to gouge Comcast and their customers. How is Comcast the bad guy here?

    Bell added it to their lineup today as well. They have had the entire versus feed on one channel 866 and just had the entire Joe Sakic jersey retirement ceremony on.

    Canada - 4 games in hd
    Direct tv - Zero

    ALso, why is the NHL network not in hd tonight?

    Once DirecTV posts a positive sub growth again this quarter it will just prove that not carrying VS is not a big deal. That will hurt Versus more than anything. Sorry NHL fans but I'm thinking this is just the beginning of the lack of coverage for you.
