Dish Network is looking to capitalize on the carriage dispute between Versus and its satellite rival, DirecTV.

The No. 2 satellite operator said Tuesday that it was offering Comcast-owned sports network Versus free to all its customers for three months starting now.

Versus is normally positioned on Dish's Classic Gold 250 and above packages, but will now be offered to all customers.

Versus has been pulled from DirecTV after the two sides could not come to carriage terms.
