AT&T Settles High-Profile Discrimination Suit

Dec 28, 2015  •  Post A Comment

AT&T has agreed to terms that will bring to an end a lawsuit brought against AT&T and DirecTV in which Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios accused the distributors of bias against minority-owned services.

Deadline.com reports that the companies have agreed to a carriage deal, settling the $10 billion lawsuit.

“The telco’s DirecTV picked up Comedy.TV and Justice Central.TV beginning today, the company says in a brief announcement. U-verse will offer Comedy.TV, Recipe.TV, ES.TV, MyDestination.TV, Cars.TV, and Pets.TV — and continue to offer Justice Central,” Deadline reports.

The discrimination suit was filed about a year ago by Entertainment Studios and the National Association of African American Owned Media.
