Newsmax, DirecTV Work Out Deal To Bring Back Conservative Network

  • “This resolution with Newsmax, resolving an all-too-common carriage dispute, underscores our dedication to delivering a wide array of programming and perspectives to our customers,” DirecTV CEO Bill Morrow said in a statement.
  • Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy, who previously accused DirecTV of “political discrimination and censorship,” said he was grateful for the new deal with the cable company that helped launch the network in 2014.
  • “Newsmax recognizes and appreciates that DirecTV clearly supports diverse voices, including conservative ones,” Ruddy said.
