Hearst stations return to DIRECTV

AT&T Inc.'s DIRECTV and Hearst Corp. reached a retransmission-consent agreement following a 24-hour blackout, The Streamable reported.

Pay TV operators pay retrans fees to broadcasters in exchange for permission to carry local stations' signals. Protracted negotiations related to those fees sometimes lead to channel blackouts if a contract expires before a new one is put in place.

Though the parties had previously agreed to multiple extensions to avoid a blackout, DIRECTV customers did lose access to 34 Hearst stations for a brief period.
