i never claimed the 2 were related, that's why i put space in between them. the article clearly stated they came to an agreement:

"Comcast Corp. and DirecTV said Monday after the markets closed that they have reached an agreement that allows DirecTV to carry Comcast’s Versus channel again" .... right after the last of the Flyers games on the VS schedule aired BTW ... no small coincidence.

in the future, the same dispute cannot result in comcast pulling the channel.
Ohh I'm going to regret this...

You should start providing us with your insight on Comcast's motive (as opposed to your speculations and your personal bias against Comcast) regarding your implications that Comcast is somehow biased against the fans of the teams they themselves own. You're making the accusation, I want you to explain the motive.

And no - please do not come back at me with telling me how Comcast was refusing to distribute CSN-P to DTV and other satellite providers. There was a specific, technology-related business decision to do so on Comcast's part that we've gone over and over and over.
