NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL Network and Dish Network have agreed to a settlement that ends a lawsuit over how the satellite provider broadcasts the channel.

The two sides announced the deal Friday. It includes a multiyear contract for Dish to continue carrying NFL Network. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

Dish had moved the channel to a tier with fewer subscribers in January 2008. The company claimed the NFL violated their contract when it simulcast the historic Patriots-Giants game on CBS and NBC in December 2007.

The league filed suit a month later, saying the contract still applied.
