Tegna has struck a multi-year retrans deal with AT&T U-verse and co-owned DirecTV for 46 TV stations.
Tegna (formerly Gannett) reaches about one-third of TV households, according to the company, which announced the deal early this morning.
There no station blackouts in the run-up to the deal.
Tegna stations had warned customers late Friday (Dec. 4)that they could have lost access to NFL football and SEC college football , among other programming, starting at midnight. Tegna recently struck a multi-year deal with DirecTV competitor Dish.
