Here is your task list for the day:
Make sure Versus stays on the DirecTV platform. Those two parties are engaged in a peeing contest over carriage rights and fees. The only people getting wet are customers. Sadly, that is typical.
Both entities say Versus may come off DirecTV after August 31. The posturing of the parties is irrelevant.
- Call, write and e-mail both Versus and DirecTV and tell them to get a deal done.
- Should Versus come off DirecTV, cancel your service and call Dish or another cable provider. They WILL give you a deal.
- Should the carrier you have not carry Versus now, ask them what the hell they are waiting for.
As fans, we do not have time to screw around with politics. I want to watch Indy Car, and Versus is doing a great job.
Losing households is not an option. We need more. We consumers need to speak up and tell both parties in no uncertain terms to get their acts together today.
