Tribune Broadcasting and DISH Network announced a long-term, comprehensive agreement on carriage and retransmission consent Saturday, Sept. 3.

The agreement restores DISH carriage of Tribune Broadcasting’s 42 local television stations in 33 markets, and Tribune’s cable network, WGN America.

The companies issued the following joint statement:

“We want to thank our viewers and customers for their patience and support as we worked through this lengthy process. We’re pleased to move forward and again be able to provide the content of Tribune’s local stations and WGN America for years to come.”

Both WGN America and Tribune’s local stations are expected to again be available to DISH customers later today. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
