Good news for DirecTV customers and FOX

According to a new report from Deadline, Fox Corporation and DirecTV have agreed to a multi-year carriage renewal, agreeing to extend talks for several hours beyond the prior deal’s set time of expiration that would have caused a blackout for several networks and local stations.

The new agreement covers local FOX stations, FS1, FS2, Big Ten Network, Fox Deportes, and Fox Soccer Plus. The financial terms were not disclosed.

It was noted in the report the official deadline passed at midnight PT on Friday, but a short-term extension was put in place to enable the parties to continue negotiating.
