DirecTV customers from across the United States had an unpleasant experience at the end of March. Due to expiring contracts between Tribune Broadcasting and DirecTV, several markets lost access to local stations such as Fox, CW, WGN and others. After four days of negotiations, the two companies have finally come to an agreement.
The new deal struck between DirecTV and Tribune Broadcasting will last for another five years. The specifics of the new contract was not disclosed to the public.
As of right now, all of the blacked-out local stations should be back on the air for DirecTV customers.
