Question about Versus on Starchoice

I have regular SD Starchoice with the most basic receiver, and the billingual subscription with one extra package, sports, which includes rogers sportsnet for baseball.

my question, I had thought that OLN had became Versus beginning last year. So in the sports package, it said OLN, so I figured I'd be getting versus, and all the NHL playoff games that should be on it.

I tune in today, with the Dallas-Vancouver game supposed to be on, and I see nature show on, with the OLN Logo down in the corner. What did I miss here, and more importantly how do I get versus on Starchoice, is there some other channel just for versus?

OLN Canada and OLN in the States are different. Just like Discovery US as well. OLN Canada is owned by TSN which is owned by CTV Globe Media I do believe.

Versus has two versions of the channel, one with hockey, the other without in the states.

You can't get Versus with any Canadian television provider that I'm aware of. You might see an odd game broadcast on Versus on Centre Ice with a different provider. Versus is one channel I do believe not approved by the CRTC. We have HNIC and TSN doing the playoffs this year so its irrelevant anyways having that particular channel IMHO
