The pair had been in negotiations for months before Friday's decision.

Starz and AT&T have come to terms on a new distribution agreement, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The deal was ironed out on Friday following months of negotiations, with shows such as Power in jeopardy for AT&T customers. Terms of the deal were not immediately released.

"AT&T and Starz have reached an agreement to continue our longstanding relationship," a Starz rep said in a statement. 

This follows 50 Cent, who produces and stars in Power, calling AT&T "racist" in a series of Instagram posts earlier this month because the then-ongoing negotiations meant that AT&T households were at risk of not being able to see the series.
