A week ago, subscribers to Charter's Spectrum service were warned that the previous carriage deal was expiring and that a blackout was possible.

The two sides agreed to an extension as negotiations continued.

“We reached an agreement with Tegna to provide local ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and other multi-cast channels to our customers. We are pleased to have reached a fair agreement for everyone and appreciate your support and patience,” Charter said in a tweet Saturday.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“We have reached an agreement with @GetSpectrum that will ensure our station stays on their lineup. Thank you for reading this message and for being part of our community,” Tegna tweeted.
