Fox and DirecTV reach agreement

I turned on the TV before reading the news, and was pleasantly surprised to see the Fox Movie Channel still airing on DirecTV. It turns out that the two entities reached an 11th-hour agreement last night. Who knows what it's going to do to the bill, of course, as the exact details of the agreement haven't been released. On the bright side, there were a couple of movies on FMC I was looking to blog about this week, and a few I haven't seen before that I was intending to watch sometime.

Update: Did DirecTV really need to run an oversize crawl at the bottom of the screen saying that they had reached an agreement with Fox? Never mind that for a second or two when it first showed up each 30 mintues, it cut out the sound.
