The Fox Networks Group Latin America division of media company 21st Century Fox has secured fresh carriage deals in the region with pan-regional pay-television operator DirecTV and Brazilian pay-television operator Sky Brasil.
Due to a carriage dispute, Fox’s channels have been missing from Sky Brasil since February 5, while the lack of a fresh deal had also meant Fox was close to leaving DirecTV, which has a subscriber base of nearly 14 million across Latin America.
FNG said in a statement that the deals, terms of which were not disclosed, have been reached after several months of talks. Fox’s portfolio of channels includes Fox Sports, Fox Sports 2 and Fox Sports 3.
Fox Sports Latin America last month renewed an agreement for rights to the World Touring Car Championship motor-racing series. Under the agreement, Fox Sports will provide live coverage of all races during the 2017 WTCC season, which begins with an event in Marrakech, Morocco on April 7-9.
