Not So Fast: Versus, DirecTV Still At An Impasse

After an initial report indicated a deal might finally have been struck between DirecTV, it seems that nothing has been resolved, after all. According to Yahoo’s Greg Wyshynski and John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal, there’s been no deal, and the two sides are exactly where we left them: “Talking,” with “Nothing imminent.”

First from Wyshynski:

PD post on Versus/DTV deal up; sadly, “not true” and “nothing is imminent," via Versus.

And then Ourand:

VS and DirecTV are talking. But Versus says a deal is not imminent. There is no deal. Versus won’t accept being put on a sports tier.

In other words, as great as it’d be to have Versus on DirecTV—for fans of all sports, but specifically mixed martial arts and hockey—we’re still a ways off before that dream becomes reality.
