[1]Glenn Beck’s exodus from TV has finally ended[2]. The conservative talk-show host’s online video channel will be added to Dish Network’s (NASDAQ:DISH[3]) satellite service, a year after he left Fox News.

TheBlaze TV, Beck’s online network, started after he left Fox June 30, 2011. It currently has 300,000 subscribers. Under the terms of the Dish deal, it will continue to stream online.

Dish subscribers who purchase the satellite provider’s 250-channel package will get TheBlaze TV as an included channel, while subscribers purchasing smaller bundles will have the option to add it on for $5.

TheBlaze TV will start airing as a 24-hour channel starting today at 5 p.m. Eastern time. It will be free to all Dish customers through Sept. 26.
