CBS dispute with AT&T/DIRECTV finally over

CBS logoThe carriage dispute that left millions of AT&T U-verse, DirecTV, and DirecTV Now subscribers without CBS stations has finally ended after an agreement was announced between the two companies today.

The restored CBS-owned properties also include CBS Sports Network on DirecTV and DirecTV Now and Smithsonian Channel on DirecTV.

The new multi-year carriage agreement, the terms of which were not disclosed, includes future AT&T TV platforms.

“CBS and AT&T regret any inconvenience to their customers and viewers and thank them for their patience,” said CBS in a press statement.

In all, 26 CBS-owned stations have been put back on the air in 17 markets that include New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Tampa, Seattle, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

AT&T is still in a dispute with Nexstar regarding carriage of 120 stations across the US.
