Even though several channels are blacked out over a contract dispute with Viacom, you will still be able to get your fix of some Comedy Central shows.
Viacom is letting new episodes of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and "The Colbert Report" be shown on its websites. It says it hopes the decision is helpful to its fans who subscribe to DirecTV.
Twenty-million DirecTV customers have been without Viacom channels like MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon since last Wednesday.
No word when a new contract will be finalized.
