The Weather Channel returns to DirecTV

Early this morning The Weather Channel returned to the DirecTV channel lineup after several months of removal. As part of the agreement, The Weather Channel will reduce reality programming by half on weekdays, return instant local weather, and allow authenticated DIRECTV customers to watch The Weather Channel on multiple devices both inside and away from home.

“Our apologies to DIRECTV and their customers for the disruption of our service and for initiating a public campaign,” said David Kenny, CEO of the Weather Company, parent to The Weather Channel.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed, although The Wall Street Journal reported The Weather Channel will receive an increase in carriage fees.

“It’s a shame these disputes are played out on a public stage, but I’m pleased that we’ve been able to work together with The Weather Channel in a way that will benefit everyone,” said Dan York, DIRECTV’s chief content officer.
