The other dispute: Fox, Dish bury the hatchet

Fox Networks' sports and cable channels returned and broadcast channels stayed on thanks to an eleventh hour retransmission agreement between Dish Network (Nasdaq: DISH) and News Corp. (Nasdaq: NWSA).

Unlike the other high profile retrans dispute, Dish was gracious in defeat, calling the agreement a "fair deal" and noting, through a statement attributed to Dave Shull, senior VP of programming, that the satellite provider is "pleased to enter into a long-term agreement with Fox and to assure our customers that they can continue to enjoy these channels."

Terms of the agreement weren't released other than that it included Fox cable channels FX, National Geographic Channel and 19 regional sports networks that had been dark as well as local Fox and MyNet stations.
