A Gannett representative from the media company's corporate office in McLean, Va., declined to discuss specifics of the agreement.
KTHV did not stop airing on Dish Network's satellite television service while the companies were negotiating.
Dish had claimed that Gannett was asking for a 300 percent increase in fees for the right to carry 22 Gannett stations affiliated with NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox. Gannett has said it was seeking a fair deal in line with market rates.
The two sides are also fighting over Dish's new digital video recorder, which allows customers to automatically skip commercials from the previous night's prime-time broadcasts.
Michael Caplan, KTHV president and general manager, did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
Dish is headquartered in Englewood, Colo.
