Dish Network, Tegna Reach Deal Ending Blackout in 38 Markets

Dish Network is restoring 46 Tegna-owned network affiliate stations to its lineup, ending a more than 24-hour blackout in 38 markets.

On Sunday afternoon the companies announced they’ve reached multi-year agreement but would not elaborate. Tegna (formerly known as Gannett Broadcasting) owns network affils serving such large markets as Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, St. Louis, Minneapolis and Seattle.

Undoubtedly, the fact that NFL games are scheduled to air Sunday on Tegna’s Fox, CBS and NBC affiliate stations helped add urgency to the negotiations. The stations went dark on Dish around 11 p.m. ET on Friday after more than a week of public wrangling between the sides over a new retransmission consent contract.
