In a more conventional press release, Fox makes this statement on its new carriage agreement with Cablevision. Fox’s signal returned just before Game 3 of the World Series.

Sunday’s NFL on FOX with New York Jets against the Green Bay Packers
Los Angeles and Bethpage, NY – Fox Networks and Cablevision announced today that they have reached an agreement in principle for a new distribution agreement to provide more than 3 million households with programming from WNYW FOX 5 and WWOR My 9 in New York, WTXF FOX 29 in Philadelphia, and the cable channels FOX Deportes, FOX Business Network, and Nat Geo WILD. The signals for all stations and cable channels were restored Saturday prior to the first pitch of World Series Game 3 on FOX.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
This brings an end to one of the nastiest, bitter and rancorous disputes. It was fun to cover, but also tedious.
Cablevision remains bitter and we’ll see if the feelings linger in the next negotiation.
