KAYU and DirecTV Come To Temporary Agreement

SPOKANE, Wash. - Good news for DirecTV customers-- at least temporarily. It seems you will be able to watch the Super Bowl on FOX after all. News of a temporary agreement between DirecTV and Northwest Broadcasting broke late Tuesday evening on DirecTV's official facebook page.

Senior Vice President of DirecTV Programming Dan Hartman stated,  "We're happy that Northwest granted our request to put the channels back on while we negotiate a deal. We are making arrangements to restore the channels as soon as possible and look forward to getting a deal done as quickly as we can."

The announcement came just hours after a letter addressed to DirecTV's President Michael White, was sent from Northwest Broadcasting President and CEO Brian Brady, which called for a special agreement to be made. Their request was for a four week period to allow the company time to reach a fair agreement and viewers a chance to watch the Super Bowl.

Northwest Broadcasting Vice President Jon Rand told KHQ over the phone that they wrote that letter in favor of the viewers and DirecTV customers.  Rand says they've made three new offers to DirecTV since first of January to restore programming with no luck, but are hopeful this temporary agreement is a step in the right direction and might turn into something permanent.

DirecTV says customers should be able to watch FOX programming by tomorrow and some viewers may already have the signal now.
