Since I’m not about to give the NHL the link to this one, Steve Lepore at Puck The Media brings DirecTV subscribers the good news.
DIRECTV and Comcast have reached an agreement to return VERSUS to the DIRECTV programming lineup today. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
VERSUS will return to the same DIRECTV programming packages it was in at the end of August 2009.
Congratulations to DirecTV and Versus/Comcast for ending their dick measuring contest, but I think we all know who is going to take credit for this one…
Like you didn’t know that I was going there with this one. I’ve said enough about this childish rich guy’s dispute here already, but again the fans are put in the peasants place where they have to feel thankful to their rich overlords for giving them back what they should’ve been getting all along.
Standard operating procedure for the higher-ups at the NHL though whose attitude towards the fans seems to sound something like, “Let them eat cake.” Convenient that this whole thing comes to an end just before the playoffs, eh? I guess the regular season really is meaningless.
