moving games to vs puts comcast in a pretty good position. you underestimate how popular nd is. They could raise the rates for versus and cable/satellite operators would pretty much be forced to pay it, as they now are for espn. they would get lower ad rates, how lower depending on the eyeballs, but the money that they would get from carriage rates would more than make up for it. that is how espn was able to outbid fox for the bowl championship series.
