Echostar-Channel

The owners of The Dish Network and cable channel OLN now have a multiyear agreement that restores the NHL carrier to subscribers of the nation's second-largest satellite television provider just in time for the hockey playoffs.

A statement from the companies says OLN will be part of a premium package offered by Dish Network.

OLN spokeswoman Amy Phillips says terms of the agreement reached yesterday won't be released.

EchoStar Communications Corporation pulled OLN from its system in October because of a contract dispute.

Although best known for broadcasting the Tour de France and cyclist Lance Armstrong, Comcast Corporation owned OLN took over broadcasting hockey games on cable from ESPN this fall.

EchoStar's Dish Network is based in suburban Englewood and has more than eleven million customers.
