Just in time for the NFL's opening weekend, DirecTV and Salt Lake City NBC affiliate KSL-TV have reached an agreement in principle on a new retransmission consent agreement.
KSL, owned by Bonneville International, a unit of the Mormon Church, went dark to DirecTV customers on Aug. 21 after three extensions to a deal that officially expired on June 30.
The renewal comes just in time for NBC Sunday Night Football, pitting the Dallas Cowboys against the New York Giants at 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
In a statement on its website on Sept. 12, KSL said a deal had been reached.
“KSL received communication from DirecTV Saturday that they have agreed to fairly compensate KSL for its valuable content” KSL vice president/general manager Tanya Vea said in a statement. “Thank you to our viewers for your patience. KSL is now back on DirecTV.”
