Three North Carolina TV stations that went dark to Dish Network subscribers on Dec. 22 returned to customers Tuesday after the parties apparently reached a new retransmission consent agreement.

Capitol Broadcasting’ s WRAL (CBS) and WRAZ (Fox) in Raleigh, N.C. and WILM (CBS) in Wilmington, N.C., went dark to Dish subscribers on Dec. 22, primarily over affiliate fees. 

According to reports, the stations returned to Dish customers at 9 p.m. on Jan. 6.

In a brief statement on its website on Jan. 7, the stations said they had reached a “mutually acceptable agreement” with Dish.
