Raycom and Dish Network reached a new retransmission-consent accord on Friday.

The pact, financial terms of which were not disclosed, ends a nine-day blackout that disconnected Dish subscribers from Raycom stations serving 36 markets. The stations, including those serving Cleveland, Richmond and Tucson, have been dark since midnight on August 1, when the companies failed to agree on a new contract.

The parties said the service to Dish customers is expected to be restored over night.
