NBC settled a suit with EchoStar Communications Corp., which it had sued for
transmitting distant network signals.
Asked if any side deals -- such as carriage agreements for NBC Cable networks
-- were part of the arrangement, NBC and EchoStar representatives said they
couldn't talk about the terms.
EchoStar settled a similar case with ABC in April. The direct-broadcast satellite company would not comment on the status of litigation with CBS or Fox.
