AT&T reached an expanded carriage agreement with Scripps Networks Interactive that includes digital rights for DirecTV`s new virtual platforms, according to fiercecable.com. Channels including HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel will not only remain on the programming guides of AT&T U-verse and the DirecTV satellite service, but also on the streaming DirecTV Now, as well as upcoming mobile programming service DirecTV Freeview. AT&T earlier announced programming deals with Disney, NBCUniversal, Discovery Networks, HBO and with HBO`s Time Warner sister company, Turner Networks. AT&T is yet to say when and if it will have live-streaming deals in place for CBS, 21st Century Fox and AMC Networks.
