This probably doesn't matter to 90% of you, but for those of you who have DirecTV and have been sweating not being able to see the NHL/PBR/MMA/UFL/cycling/whatever, the wait is finally over.

DirecTV, Versus have deal after more than 6 months
(AP)

PHILADELPHIA — DirecTV and Versus have reached a deal after more than six months to return the sports network to the satellite television service.

DirecTV dropped Versus after their contract concluded at the end of August and the two sides were not able to reach an agreement. They said Monday that Versus will be available as part of the same packages as before.

Versus' offerings include the NHL playoffs, which begin next month.

Well, that does it. Goodbye Dish Network and your pathetic attempts at software. I wasn't going to switch to DirecTV because of them not carrying Versus (cycling for me).

Good news. They showed a lot of KU games when I was in Sidney. Of course I was pissed when they quit.

Thats good news, Keven has DirecTV and misses having Versus on his channel lineup, he watches the MMA fights on it. I have cable and its always been on my lineup, they never removed it. I will be glad to tell him this news tomorrow. A little something to make him happy. Thanks.

It's about time. I missed two Oregon State football games last season because of their little spat. :mad:
