DirecTV and News Corp. Avert Channel Blackout
By BRIAN STELTER
6:15 p.m. | Updated | Representatives for DirecTV and News Corporation said Monday evening that they had averted a looming blackout of regional sports networks, FX and other Fox-owned cable channels.
After warring in public for a week and a half, the two companies said they had come to a new contract agreement. “We both know the past ten days have been challenging, but we’re pleased that both sides could eventually come together to ensure our viewers continue to enjoy Fox programming,” the companies said in a joint statement.
