Viacom and DirecTV announced that they have finally come to an agreement. This agreement will will end the blackout that has taken place since July 10, and kept 26 channels off the air.

Derek Chang, executive vice president of Content Strategy and Development for DIRECTV, said, "We are very pleased to be able to restore the channels to our customers and thank them for their unprecedented patience and support. It's unfortunate that Viacom took the channels away from customers to try to gain leverage, but in the end, it's clear our customers recognized that tactic for what it was."

Viacom's statement said, "Viacom is extremely pleased to bring its programming back to DIRECTV subscribers, and thanks everyone affected by the disruption for their patience and understanding during this challenging period".
