TV Versus and Direct TV


living on the border
So....I went to watch the Bruins opener the other day and when I turned to Versus I got a very upseting message. Apparently Comcast charges Direct TV to show Versus. Comcast was going to raise the charges on Direct TV so to prevent from having to charge its customers more, Direct TV dropped the channel.

I dont understand why this is allowed to happen.

Unfortunately that's the way our world works. Comcast and the Big Ten Network had this same problem a couple years back. Comcast refused to pay BTN what they were asking, so they didn't carry the channel and I had to go to Buffalo Wild Wings to watch some of the Ohio State games.
This would've killed me last year, as I would've missed 90% of the hockey games, but I still get Versus HD with Charter Digital Cable.
