Vindicated! Versus Network Returns to DirecTV Today

Vera vs. Jones UFC on Versus MMA

According to an official announcement released this afternoon, DirecTV and Comcast have reached an agreement to return Versus to the DirecTV programming lineup beginning today. The impending deal was first reported by, but while we previously stated that DirecTV subscribers would be able to purchase Versus as part of a "special sports tier," Versus will simply be placed back in the same programming packages the channel was in at the end of August 2009. Said Versus president Jamie Davis:

"We are excited that we were able to come to a fair agreement that puts Versus back in millions of homes with DirecTV in time for our busy spring programming schedule. We look forward to super-serving these fans with NHL regular-season and playoff coverage, our first live UFC event and much more."

Whoa! Not just serving, but super-serving! That’s what we call a happy ending. If you’re a DirecTV subscriber, Versus should be up on channel 603 no later than 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. Who wants to come over and watch bull-riding?

@Contraband: Good god, is there anything more annoying than posters who chime in and refer to a completely unrelated news story for attention. Did you want full credit or a t-shirt for this breaking news?

I have a feeling that the poor results of the last WEC contributed to this. I think would at least have doubled their numbers if they had Directv on board then. I am super stoked since I have Directv. Now I dont have to go over to my so called "friends" house to watch UFC and WEC on Versus.
