“Canceled” Newsmax Signs Deal To Return To DirecTV

CNBC reports:

DirecTV said Wednesday it reached a deal with Newsmax Media to once again carry the right wing network in its satellite-TV and streaming packages.

DirecTV had not carried Newsmax on its services since late January, when carriage negotiations broke down between the two companies. Newsmax had earlier alleged at the core of the dispute was “political discrimination,” with some politicians getting involved along the way, while DirecTV said it came down to economic differences.

The TV network, run by CEO Christopher Ruddy, had been pushing to receive fees. “The terms of the renewal – which includes a multi-year distribution deal – were not disclosed,” a DirecTV representative said.
