Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Generally stations pay a programming fee to the network that in part covers retransmission fees collected by the station for broadcasting network primetime programming and sports.

“This new agreement extends our valued relationship with Sinclair and ensures that millions of consumers will continue to enjoy Fox’s leading sports and entertainment content from the #1 broadcast network of the television season,” said Mike Biard, president, operations and distribution for Fox.
