Nexstar Media Group and AT&T have entered into a new multi-year retransmission consent agreement that returns WFFF/Local 44 and 96 other Nexstar stations to AT&T’s platforms across the United States.

“Our customers want more choice and value and we are pleased to deliver that through this new agreement with Nexstar and its many local stations,” said Rob Thun, Senior Vice President of Content and Programming, AT&T Communications.

AT&T and Nexstar said they regret the inconvenience incurred by customers, viewers and advertisers. Keith Hopkins, Nexstar Media Group’s senior vice president for distribution, thanked them for their patience as the new agreement was being finalized.

“Nexstar’s long-standing commitment is to provide exceptional programming and service to the local communities we serve across the United States and this new multi-year agreement will allow us to continue delivering our stations’ leading network and sports content as well as local news and other programming to AT&T subscribers in our markets,” Hopkins said.

The dispute began in early July.
