“We are pleased to have reached this agreement that will return Tribune Broadcasting’s local television stations and WGN America to Spectrum customers and Tribune’s viewers," the companies said in a joint statement.

The squabble had prevented local viewers from Fox 8's regular programming and last weekend's NFL playoffs.
