Open letter to our fans @NHL
To all NHL fans who subscribe to DirecTV,

We are aware of the current dispute between DirecTV and VERSUS, and have met with both sides to emphasize that we and NHL fans everywhere want this issue resolved as quickly as possible. Like you, we're excited about the start of the 2009-10 regular season on October 1, and want all fans to be able to watch NHL games on VERSUS. Our support remains with you, our fans, and your ability to watch games.

We encourage all of you to let your voices be heard. Tell both DirecTV and VERSUS how their dispute will interfere with your enjoyment of hockey, and that you want their dispute to end now.  Make it clear you do not want them to take away any NHL games from you. It is important to join the cause and have your voice be heard.

Call Direct TV at (800) 642-1923 or via e-mail at

Call VERSUS at (877) 837-7876 or via e-mail at

We will continue to work on your behalf and demand DirecTV and VERSUS come to an agreement that allows you to watch the October 1 opening night games on VERSUS. We also promise to keep you, and all our fans, up-to-date with the latest information.
