U-Verse Signs New Deal With Rainbow Media Networks

In other words, no worries U-Verse subscribers ... you will have your 'Mad Men.'

U-Verse parent company AT&T has announced that it has signed a new deal with Rainbow Media -- parent company of cable networks AMC, IFC and WE -- to keep the networks broadcasting on U-Verse.
The companies' previous contract expired on Jul. 14, and there was concern that, without a new deal in place right away, U-Verse's 2.3 million subscribers might miss out on the Jul. 25 season four premiere of 'Mad Men.'

Not to mention new episodes of 'Bridezillas'!

According to AT&T's statement: "We're very satisfied that we were able to reach the fair deal we wanted for our customers, one that includes the right content, across platforms, at prices that are in line with the marketplace, and that helps us with important strategic content initiatives. We are very grateful to our customers for their support."

By the way, U-Verse subscribers, 'Breaking Bad' won't be back with new episodes until next year, but a few other Rainbow Media shows you might want to check out:

- 'Rubicon,' the fantastic new conspiracy thriller that premieres on AMC on Aug. 1

- 'The Walking Dead,' the Frank Darabont-produced series adaptation of the comic book, which premieres on AMC in October

- A re-airing of the greatest coming-of-age TV dramedies of all-time, 'Freaks and Geeks,' on IFC

- And on WE, in addition to 'Bridezillas,' 'The Golden Girls' and the upcoming Joan and Melissa Rivers reality series 'Joan & Melissa: Mother Knows Best'
