Oct 29, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Tribune and Cablevision reached a deal late Friday night, restoring Tribune-owned stations to Cablevision’s customers, reports the New York Post.

"We are pleased to have reached agreement with Tribune to return its stations to Cablevision, particularly its Fox affiliate in Connecticut, the only source of Fox programming for about 50,000 of our customers,” Cablevision said in a statement.

The dispute kept New York’s WPIX and Connecticut’s WTIC, among other stations, from Cablevision customers. The stations had been off the air since Aug. 17, when the two companies failed to reach terms over distribution fee increases.

Details of the agreement weren’t disclosed, the story adds.
