It appears Versus has decided to speak up about the issue. Since Sunday as well it appears customer service reps. at DirecTV has been fib telling customers telling them that Versus has signed a deal to continue when they haven’t. Casey Stone at Versus was nice enough to give Formula D a number for fans to call that we want to forward on to you. 1-800-642-1923 is the telephone number and below you can read Casey’s comments. In fact, they even told Formula Drift driver Tyler McQuarrie over the weekend that service would continue.
“We are hopeful that DirecTV will make the right decision for its customers and put VERSUS back on the air so sports fans can continue to enjoy all of the network’s marquee programming. In the meantime, we urge you to call 1-800-642-1923 to demand that DirecTV puts VERSUS back on or visit www.VERSUS.com for more information about how to switch to another video provider; all of which carry VERSUS.“
In addition, the DISH Netowrk has moved Versus to a different tier so we are in an additional nine-million homes for the next three months.
We appreciate you standing by us and activating your fan base during this situation. We hope to have this resolved in a timely manner.
