Belo Strikes Long-Term Retrans Deal with DirecTV

Belo stations will remain on DirecTV.

In an 11th hour announcement–similar to the one DirecTV and Fox made a day earlier–the satellite provider reported late Tuesday that it had reached a new retrans agreement with Belo, ending talk of a possible blackout.

“We have reached a long-term agreement with Belo that will allow our customers to continue to enjoy their favorite channels and shows,” DirecTV announced in a statement.  “These disputes should never involve viewers and we appreciate our customers’ patience as we worked to successfully complete this agreement.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
