Verizon and TEGNA shook hands Thursday afternoon, returning three stations that had been dark to Fios customers.

The blackout, which began Monday at 5pm ET, had impacted WVEC (ABC Norfolk), WUSA (CBS DC) and WGRZ (NBC Buffalo). It came after the two were unable to agree to terms for renewing the broadcaster’s retransmission consent deal.

“We want to sincerely thank you for your patience and loyalty while we worked to secure an agreement,” Verizon said in a statement to customers.

Earlier in the day, Fios customers had the option online of requesting a one-time, $5.99 “appreciation discount” as a credit due to the blackout.
