July 20, 2012
Ad Age reports that Viacom and DirecTV have ended its 10 day blackout over its fee dispute and the 26 Viacom channels that had been blacked out since July 10th are back on DirecTV.
Via Ad Age:
All 26 networks will return to DirecTV, Viacom said today in a statement. As part of the agreement, El Segundo, California-based DirecTV, the largest satellite TV service, has an option to add the EPIX channel to its offerings.
Good news for all of us DTV subscribers as we can watch Bellator tonight on MTV2. The EPIX offering is intriguing considering it carries some boxing events on its channel. MMA Payout will have more on the settlement in the coming days.
