fringe walter comcast News Corp. reconciles with Dish Network, still on the outs with Cablevision

Dish Network customers, rejoice! The latest carriage dispute has come to an end.

The Wrap reports that that News. Corps and Dish Network reached a deal to reinstate FOX’s cable channels on the carrier — nearly a month after they went dark.

FX, National Geographic Channel and Fox’s 19 regional sports networks have all been restored. Dish also now avoids the possible blackout in local FOX affiliates, set to begin at midnight on Oct. 31, had an agreement not been reached.

That blackout would have left its 15 million subscribers without several World Series games, a fate currently shared by 3 million Cablevision subscribers. The cable company’s own issues with News Corp. have left it FOX-less for almost two weeks.
