About a day after their seemingly irreconcilable differences forced the blackout of Tegna stations in 38 Dish Network markets Friday evening, the two companies announced they had reached a multi-year retrans deal by Sunday afternoon. Tegna said the stations would return to Dish customers immediately.

About 33 Tegna stations went dark to Dish customers in 38 markets on Friday at about 7 p.m. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
