Sept 18 (Reuters) -

DirecTV said on Monday it had reached a multi-year deal with Nexstar Media Group that would return the local broadcaster's content to the AT&T-controlled distributor's network after a more than two-month blackout.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The move brings back 176 Nexstar-owned television stations and its national cable news network, NewsNation, back to DirecTV customers.

DirecTV, in which AT&T has a 70% stake, removed Nexstar's programming from its platforms on July 2 over a dispute on viewer fees.

On Sunday, the companies agreed to


restore programming from Nexstar, the largest local TV station owner in the United States. (Reporting by Chavi Mehta in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil D'Silva)
