DirecTV has ended one of its transmission disputes. The four television stations owned by West Virginia Media Holdings have returned to the DirecTV lineup after being pulled on July 1. Many West Virginians have historically relied on satellite television as the mountainous terrain makes it difficult to pick up television signals.
The BBC bought the rights to air the four Olympics following London.
