Newsmax returns to DirecTV, inks multiyear distribution deal

Streaming HUBMarch 22, 2023

Newsmax is returning to DirecTV after a dispute between the parties dropped the conservative network from the satellite carrier.

The two were initially unable to agree on a deal with the financial terms, which led to DirecTV losing the rights to distribute Newsmax programming on January 25.

The companies said on Wednesday that they have now reached a multi-year distribution deal, under which the Newsmax channel will return to DirecTV, DirecTV Stream and U-verse from Thursday.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

DirecTV insisted in a statement that the dispute over Newsmax dropping was always purely financial, and “never about limiting conservative voices.”

Newsmax agreed in its own statement, after initially suggesting its removal was censorship, a view echoed by several prominent conservative voices.

Newsmax CEO Christopher Rudy said in a statement, “Newsmax recognizes and appreciates that DirecTV unequivocally supports diverse voices, including conservative ones.”
