DirecTV drops more than a dozen Viacom networks over fee dispute
LOS ANGELES (MCT) — As Mike Sorrentino, of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” would put it, DirecTV and Viacom have a situation here.
DirecTV dropped more than a dozen cable networks owned by Viacom including MTV, Nickelodeon, BET and Comedy Central on Tuesday night after the satellite distributor was unable to reach a new fee arrangement with the media giant to continue carrying its channels. Although the two sides are continuing to negotiate, analysts said the dispute could drag on for weeks.
