Over the weekend, FOX and AT&T announced that they have renewed their distribution deal to bring FOX-owned networks to DIRECTV NOW.
This deal means there will be no blackout for FS1, FS2, FX, FXX, FXM, National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo Wild, BabyTV, and Spanish language services Fox Deportes, Nat Geo Mundo, and Fox Life or the FOX Soccer Plus pay-per-view service on DIRECTV NOW. This will also bring FOX-owned and operated locals to DIRECTV NOW.
“We are pleased to have closed a multi-year deal with Fox for their entire array of content. Our customers will continue to enjoy their programming live and on-demand on all their devices, both at home and on-the-go,” said Daniel York, chief content officer and senior executive vice president for AT&T Communications. “Fox has worked with us in this deal to deliver more choice for consumers and better value to AT&T customers.”
“We’re pleased to expand our partnership with AT&T through this wide-ranging agreement which ensures that our top-rated entertainment and sports programming will remain broadly available to DirecTV, DIRECTNOW and U-Verse customers for the foreseeable future,” said Fox Networks Group President of Distribution Mike Biard.
These deals will also mean that as FOX-owned networks are transitioned over to Disney ownership there will be no blackout.
