    Agreed. And, since FSN Pittsburgh is part of this deal, and that channel gets crazy-high ratings during hockey season, it will be a good bargaining chip for DirecTV.

    Heh...just called DTV and played dumb about this shoddy network because my favorite team plays on it the next two weeks (thanks again to you dolts running the Big 12).

    Didn't get offered a thing...granted, I didn't ask, but did mention cancelling the sports pack.

    Yes it will be back on D* on 4/12/10, just in time for the playoffs. ;) Obviously those are the questions we all want to know the answer to.

    Good idea, might help. Just hope the article doesn't say the following. In a quote we received from NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman about the MSG HD not being used on NHLCI, he stated "We're working on it". ;)

    I just love the spin on how well Versus is doing with the % increases but no hard numbers. It's not hard to increase something 50% when your numbers are so low. I mean 100K to 150K is 50% increase. Whoohooo, look at us, we went up 50%! LOL.

    I actually got an email response from the lead editor. I gave them background info on the issue. They will discuss the idea at their staff meeting this week and may indeed do an article on the topic. I'll keep you posted if I hear more.

    It was announced today that the Big Game, Cal @ Stanford, will be carryied on VS at 4:30 pm PT on Nov.21. This will drive those of us who live in NorCal and subscibe to D* nuts.

    Vs actually picked up the last 2 games for Cal the Cal/AZ game and Cal/Stanford "Big Game." So any Cal fans lose twice and Stanford fans lose out plus they already missed the Stanford/AZ game earlier this year. I sure hope this gets resolved. But, I would guess it doesn't look good, Vs was still ranked on the bottom of Sports Channels; below Speed and above Fox Soccer. The two highest rated Vs shows this past week were PBR evnts..............not the NHL.
