Time is winding down for DirecTV and News Corporation to work out some kind of deal.
The two are in the middle of nasty contract negotiations, with both sides warning customers that some Fox channels (FX, Fox Sports South, Speed, National Geographic, Fuel, Fox Movie Channel) will go black on November 1 if an agreement isn't reached. So far, no agreement, but it's likely they'll at least decide on a short extension before midnight tonight (3 a.m. Eastern deadline).
I'm sure everything will get worked out. It always does, right? But then again, I also said that about Aetna and UNC Hospitals/Rex Hospitals, and I'm almost 9 months into having nearly unusable health insurance, so don't go by me...
FX airs "American Horror Story," "Sons of Anarchy," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," and "The League."UP
UPDATED: The New York Times reports that a channel blackout has been averted.
