ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Fox 2 and KPLR 11 are back on Spectrum cable.

Tribune Broadcasting and Charter Communications reached a deal Friday morning, ending a contract stalemate that started January 2nd.

The two companies were in a dispute over "retransmission fees". Terms of the settlement weren't disclosed.

This also means WGN America and other Tribune stations are now back on Spectrum cable nationwide.

The companies made a joint statement regarding the agreement:

“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.”

A further stalemate would have prevented many St. Louis customers from watching NFL playoff games this weekend.
