DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ: DISH) announced a multiyear carriage agreement Sunday with Fox Corporation (NASDAQ: FOXA) (NASDAQ: FOX) for its owned-and-operated local stations, as well as FS1, FS2, BTN, Fox Soccer Plus and Fox Deportes.

The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"We appreciate our customers' patience as we worked to reach a long-term agreement that restores the Fox networks and local broadcast stations," DISH said in a statement. 

DISH Network shares were trading up slightly at $33.10 at the tmie of publication. The stock has a 52-week high of $44.66 and a 52-week low of $23.22.

Fox shares were trading 0.84% higher at $30.74. The stock has a 52-week high of $41.73 and a 52-week low of $29.67.
