Viacom Gives All Its Channels Back to DirecTV

DirecTV and Viacom were in something of a spat, unable to reach a broadcast agreement. This resulted in channels such as MTV and Comedy Central disappearing from DirecTV's satellite beam. However, the two companies worked things out with a long term agreement, and all is well again.


But here's the weird thing: Viacom says it's restoring all 26 of the channels it pulled from the DirecTV lineup, while DirecTV pegs the number at 17. Who's lying here? [Cnet and Engadget]
