DirecTV And Fox Strike A Deal, No Blackout For FX And Other Fox Cable Channels image
Itís a Halloween miracle! DirecTV subscribers who were concerned that they might be losing some Fox cable channels can rest assured that the channel-blackout has been averted. DirecTV and Fox have reportedly worked out a deal, which means FX, National Geographic, among other channels will still be available to DirecTV subscribers tomorrow.

Fox and DirecTV were caught up in carriage disputes and, had they not come to an agreement by November 1st (tomorrow), DirecTV was apparently set to drop a number of Fox cable channels, including FX. The New York Times posted an updated this evening stating that an agreement was made between Fox and the digital satellite service.
ďWe both know the past ten days have been challenging, but weíre pleased that both sides could eventually come together to ensure our viewers continue to enjoy Fox programming,Ē the companies said in a joint statement.

The Times says details on the deal werenít disclosed.

This is especially good news for fans of FXís excellent original programming, including American Horror Story, The League, Itís Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Sons of Anarchy. The next couple of episodes of Sons of Anarchy fall under the category of must-watch if youíre a fan of the series. It's good to know things were worked out between Fox and DirecTV so fans won't be missing out.
