It took three extensions before they could get it done, but the station group and satellite carrier now have a retrans deal covering 60 Nexstar stations in 46 markets. Terms were not disclosed.
After extending of its prior retransmission consent agreement with Dish three times, Nexstar Broadcasting Group has finally reached a long-term deal with the satellite carrier.
The announcement of a deal came at 10 p.m. ET Wednesday, just two hours before the last extension was due to expire.
The agreement covers 60 stations in 46 markets.

Nexstar noted that “no material service interruptions” related to retransmission consent deals have occurred with its stations since 2005.
