DirecTV, Weather Channel Reach Agreement

DirecTV's three-month-long dispute with the Weather Channel is over.

The two companies announced the channel will return to DirecTV lineups today.

The dispute centered on subscriber fees.

The Weather Channel said DirecTV refused to give it a slight per-subscriber fee increase.

DirecTV said it wanted the channel to accept a rare fee decrease because of cost pressures and dissatisfaction with the channel's taped programming.

The companies did not say what happened with the fee negotiations.

But in a joint news release, both companies said the Weather Channel had "agreed to reduce reality programming by half on weekdays."
