Charter Cable to Drop Versus

Charter Cable has made some noise about potentially dropping the sports channel Versus (formerly OLN) prior to the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Sports fans on Charter look to lose exposure to the following sports:

  • Exclusive coverage of the NHL playoffs, including the Eastern and Western Conference Finals and the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals.
  • Professional Bull Riders (PBR)
  • America’s Cup
  • Field Sports
  • The Tour de France
  • Mountain West Conference College Football, Basketball and more
  • Of course Versus provides you with a who to call and email form to voice your displeasure to Charter Cable. This all becomes a game, because really the only people who really get harmed in this are the people who watch Versus, like those 5 hockey fans.

    . . . and don’t forget this one big PBR fan! I’m definitely switching to the DISH if Cable removes my bullriding from its line-up!

    I called Charter. They are NOT dropping Versus. It was all a bunch of marketing hype created by Comcast (who owns VS and the Golf channel) to gain leverage and try to charge Charter more for those channels.

    I repeat, Charter is NOT dropping Versus.
