"After prolonged negotiations to reach a fair deal, we're pleased to enter into a long-term agreement with Fox and to assure our customers that they can continue to enjoy these channels," said Dave Shull, Senior Vice President of Programming for Dish Network.

The deal between the unit of News Corp. and Dish Network comes two days before their agreement for Fox's broadcast signals expired.

The agreement means Dish customers will be able to watch baseball's World Series on their own TV sets.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. But the companies said it was wide-ranging and long term.

Meanwhile, Fox and Cablevision have been in a 14-day standoff that has left some 3 million Cablevision subscribers in the New York area blacked out.
