Gannett and DirecTV Reach Retransmission Agreement Deadline

Gannett and DirecTV reached a last-minute retransmission agreement, allowing DirecTV to continue retransmitting signals from Gannett's 23 television stations, reports Deadline.com.

Gannett had warned viewers that a signal disruption was possible if the two companies couldn't break an impasse over a new contract. Gannett didn't offer details on the new agreement, the piece adds.

NBC would have been impacted if Gannett stations had gone dark on DirecTV, as Gannett is the largest independent owner of NBC stations, according to the story.
