Univision Inks Retrans Pact With Verizon’s FiOS TV

Spanish-language media giant, Univision Communications announced Thursday (April 23) it had signed a retransmission agreement with Verizon’s FiOS TV. The multi-year pact covers carriage of Univision’s owned-and-operated stations; affiliated stations owned by Entravision Communications and Fisher Communications; Univision’s cable network, Galavision; and network feeds for both Univision and TeleFutura networks.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but Univision has been seeking cash compensation in exchange for its programming instead of opting for must-carry.
The agreement follows a string of retransmission deals Univision has made with a number of subscription TV providers, including Comcast, DirecTV, AT&T U-Verse, Time Warner and Dish Network.
