At least they replaced Versus with something. No NHL or college football but still its a channel that SOME might like.

That one is OTA as a digital sub-channel in lots of markets already, its old clips from NBC.

Yes, it is adding another channel, but adding yet another shopping channel would be something added as well. Not a lot of difference, IMO.

I was being sarcastic, hence the laughing face. I've watched the channel before, lots of reruns, but isn't that what every cable channel has?

THANK YOU DIRECTV!!!!!

I have been waiting for this channel for a long time now. I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but as a fan of Olympic sports, I am very happy this channel has been added!

As was I, however, I feel sure that someone at D* is under the impression that adding any channel, even one as bogus as this one or YASC (yet another shopping channel), sees it as being equal.

CBS was rumored to have an equivalent (digital sub-channel offering) sports channel, only with live sports, a few years back. Anyone know whatever happened to that one?

BTW, just looked at the web-site for this one and lots of soft-porn on there. :lol:

Good, now the people in the Versus thread wanting their $0.20 for a channel loss might be even. lol
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Press <Guide> on your remote, tune to channel 604, and press the left arrow button to highlight "604 US" and read the description of the channel above the guide...

Bingo!

Maybe after I watch the channel I'll go buy an 8-track to listen to.

SD sux! Especially on DIRECTV.

FYI - this channel is not listed on the DIRECTV website.

Sure, now they add it, a couple of weeks too late! This is the channel that carried the MLL playoff game that I REALLY wanted to see (Lizards v. Nationals). Unfortunately, the Lizards lost, so I guess I didn't really miss anything, but I would have liked to have had this channel in August.

the problem is that there is ONE event that I tune to Versus for - The Iditarod. I'm very concerned that I won't be able to see it next march.

It could be a move to placate the Cycling enthusiasts. Universal Sports is showing the Veulta a Espana.
