Viacom Settles with Direct TV. Thank goodness.

Was getting tired of watching The Daily Show on my laptop. Not sure exactly what Epix is but it appears to have been a major part of the problem and now we will all have Epix on our channel list. No idea of what else was included- assume it will come out as the story unfolds.

Viacom and DirecTV have reached a long-term agreement to bring all 26 Viacom Networks channels back to the satellite network. DirecTV Subscribers have been without Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, and others for over a week after the two companies disagreed on contract renewal terms. DirecTV claimed that Viacom was attempting to increase its carriage fees by 30 percent, and refused to pay the higher price.

Here's another link:
After a long, nasty and ultimately expensive wrangle, Viacom and DirecTV have reached a long-term agreement to renew carriage. (This story is developing). All 26 Viacom networks, including Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, MTV, BET, CMT, Logo, Spike, TV Land, MTV2, VH1, VH1 Classic, Palladia, Nick Jr., Nicktoons, TeenNick, Tr3s and Centric, will return to satellite provider's channel lineup immediately.

As part of the overall carriage agreement, DirecTV has an option to add the Epix service to its entertainment offerings.

Snip
