Northwest Broadcasting Inc. and DISH Network have reached an agreement for retransmission of the programming from its four Fox stations, including in Spokane and Yakima, a news release from DISH announced this evening.
The agreement was reached in time for DISH customers to see the football playoff game between the Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons Sunday morning, the release said.
KAYU-TV, Spokane’s Fox affiliate, had been blacked out to DISH customers since late November. Terms of the deal to end the blackout were not disclosed.
The dispute between the broadcast group and the satellite TV provider angered many customers and sports fans, as each side had blamed the other for the lack of resolution.
