NFL Network and Dish Network Resolve Dispute

NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL Network and Dish Network have agreed to
a settlement that ends a lawsuit over how the satellite provider
broadcasts the channel.

The two sides announced the deal Friday. It includes a multiyear contract for Dish to continue carrying NFL Network. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Dish had moved the channel to a tier with fewer subscribers in January 2008. The company claimed the NFL violated their contract
when it simulcast the historic Patriots-Giants game on CBS and NBC
in December 2007.

The league filed suit a month later, saying the contract still applied.
