Viacom Channels Restores 26 Channels To DirecTV Subscribers

DirecTV reached a deal to restore Viacom Inc's networks to their 20 million U.S. subscribers. Viacom said it restored all of its cable networks, including Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV and BET, which became unavailable to the satellite TV provider customers as of July 10. DirecTV and Viacom had been in talks over a new contract but could not agree on terms before the July 10 deadline. "A decisive push to hammer out a deal that we believe is fair and mutually beneficial (occurred)" said Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman in a memo to company staff on Thursday.
