Rejoice if you're a Direct TV user and miss all 20 or so of those Viacom owned channels. They're back! Link.
It's been just a few days short of 2 weeks since Viacom and Direct TV couldn't come to a deal over a price increase Viacom was seeking for it's channels. A price increase of about $1 billion. The two media giants then went to war with Direct TV running self aggrandizing "ads" in place of Viacom channels and Viacom removing Daily Show and Colbert Report from streaming to everyone on the internet just to spite Direct TV.
But now that the children have stopped squabbling, you the paying customer get your full service back.
No clue on the final dollar amount earned or when the channels will surface again. If you're a Direct TV customer and have them back or don't feel free to tell us!
