Dispatch Stations Back on DirecTV, U-Verse

After over a month off of AT&T's DirecTV and U-Verse MVPDs, Dsipatch Broadcasting's WBNS-TV Columbus, Ohio, and WTHR-TV Indianapolis are back on.

A broadcast source said it was a three-year carriage deal for the CBS and NBC affiliate, respectively, but did not know the terms.

WBNS and WTHR let Web surfers know the news with identical banners atop their home pages declaring: "Attention DirecTV and AT&T U-verse Subscribers! 10TV is back on your system! After reaching a fair agreement with DirecTV and AT&T U-verse, all of your favorite programs have returned to your channel lineup. Missed some episodes from your favorite CBS shows?
