AT&T (T) and Lionsgate's Starz (LGFA) said Friday they have reached a new multi-year content carriage agreement that will allow AT&T to offer a full suite of Starz' programming to customers of its DirectTV, AT&T TV and U-verse video platforms. The news comes a day after AT&T reached a deal with Nexstar that will bring broadcast feeds back in 97 markets after a two-month dispute. The company also recently resolved a dispute with CBS. Lionsgate shares rose slightly on the news, but are down 41% in 2019, while the S&P 500 has gained 17%.
