Fox, DirecTV reach deal; Stars games will stay on satellite operator
By Mark Stepneski
If you are a DirecTV subscriber and have been concerned about missing Dallas Stars games because of the satellite operator’s dispute with Fox, which included Fox Sports Southwest, you can stop worrying.
The two sides announced this evening that they have reached an agreement that will keep the Fox networks, including FSSW, on DirecTV.
This was the statement from DirecTV:
We have reached an agreement with Fox Networks to continue carrying all Fox Networks (including FX, National Geographic Channel, Nat Geo WILD, SPEED, FUEL TV, FOX Soccer, FOX Soccer Plus and FOX Deportes), Fox’s regional sports networks, Fox Broadcasting (FOX), the FOX local stations, Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. We know the past ten days have been challenging, but we’re pleased that both sides could eventually come together to ensure our viewers continue to enjoy Fox programming.
