DIRECTV NOW, FOX Renew Distribution Deal

Are you someone who’s held off getting DIRECTV NOW because of the FOX blackout? If so, you might be glad to know that AT&T and FOX have renewed their distribution deal. This agreement happened over the weekend of November 16, 2018. This means all FOX-owned networks will return to DIRECTV NOW, which is AT&T’s premier streaming service. This multi-year renewal deal also includes AT&T’s other video platforms: DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse.

Here are the FOX stations and channels returning to DIRECTV NOW:

  • FS1
  • FS2
  • FX
  • FXX
  • FXM

  • Fox Deportes
  • Nat Geo Mundo
  • Fox Life
  • FOX Soccer Plus (pay-per-view)
  • FOX-owned and operated local TV channels in 17 cities
  • 22 Fox-owned regional sports networks

AT&T is pleased to have completed this multi-year deal with FOX, according to Daniel York, chief content officer and senior executive vice president for AT&T Communications. York added, “Our customers will continue to enjoy their programming live and on-demand on all their devices, both at home and on-the-go. Fox has worked with us in this deal to deliver more choice for consumers and better value to AT&T customers.”

If you’re considering getting DIRECTV NOW, Signal Connect can help you. As an AT&T Preferred Dealer, Signal Connect can offer you some great savings on this streaming service. For example, existing and new AT&T Wireless customers can qualify for a $15/month bill credit. Qualifying first responders and military personnel also get this $15 monthly credit.
