WACO, Texas – FOX44 is officially back on DIRECTV.

This is because Nexstar Media Group, Inc. and AT&T have entered into a new multi-year re-transmission consent agreement to provide Nexstar-owned network affiliated and local broadcast stations to customers of AT&T’s video platforms in 97 markets across the United States.

Due to this, Nexstar local stations are now returning to any impacted DIRECTV, AT&T TV and U-verse platforms.

“Our customers want more choice and value, and we are pleased to deliver that through this new agreement with Nexstar and its many local stations,” says Rob Thun, AT&T Communications Senior Vice President of Content and Programming.

“Nexstar’s long-standing commitment is to provide exceptional programming and service to the local communities we serve across the United States, and this new multi-year agreement will allow us to continue delivering our stations’ leading network and sports content as well as local news and other programming to AT&T subscribers in our markets,” says Keith Hopkins, Nexstar Senior Vice President of Distribution.

AT&T and Nexstar say they regret the inconvenience customers, viewers, and advertisers have experienced, and they thank them for their patience as the new agreement was being finalized.

Financial terms were not disclosed.
