WAPA TV and WAPA Deportes are back on DIRECTV Puerto Rico.
That is according to a representative of the broadcaster, who said the two sides have reached a multi-year agreement to end their retransmission consent dispute.
The channels had been off DirecTV since May 4 after they could not agree to a renewal.
"WAPA has been Puerto Rico's ratings leader for nine consecutive years, and we're pleased to have reached a new agreement with DirecTV," said Alan J. Sokol, president of WAPA owner Hemisphere Media. "We have a longstanding relationship with WAPA and WAPA Deportes in service of the local Puerto Rico community, " said Juan Davila, VP and GM of AT&T Puerto Rico/USVI (AT&T owns DirecTV).
