In June, football fans who also happened to be Dish Network subscribers were left worrying about the upcoming football season when talks between the NFL and Dish broke down, leading to a blackout of the NFL Network and NFL RedZone.
It seemed like it could be permanent, too, with the NFL launching a website urging Dish Network customers to jump ship to other providers.
Fortunately, that has come to an end as of Tuesday, when Dish announced that it and the league had finally agreed on a deal, and both NFL Network and RedZone had returned to the satellite TV provider.
The announcement was brief and short on detail, with the terms of the deal being kept under wraps.
While this is good news for satellite subscribers, it seems like cord-cutters are being left out, at least for the time being.
When the blackout first happened, some guessed that Dish was pursuing additional terms that would bring NFL Network and RedZone to its Sling TV internet-streaming service, similar to what it had done when it renewed its deal with Viacom.
