NEW YORK - (AP) - Cablevision customers in the New York Tri-State area can watch the Food Network and HGTV again beginning Thursday.

Cablevision Systems Corp. and Scripps Networks Interactive Inc. said Thursday they reached an agreement allowing for the return of Food Network and HGTV programming to Cablevision's customers in the area.

They did not give terms of the agreement.

Cablevision had dropped the channels for its 3.1 million subscribers in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in a fee dispute with Scripps.
