Univision Dish Agreement 150 150 protek

In a statement, President and CEO Erik Carlson thanked customers for their patience, “because we have worked to find an agreement that is fair to all parties, especially our customers.” Terms of the new agreement, which reinstated channels for customers on Tuesday, were not disclosed. But the dispute that is to take place between the two companies has been settled as part of the pact. In a standoff in June 2018, three univision networks fell from Dish`s satellite TV system and over-the-top television service, as the two companies failed to agree on the terms of a new transport contract. Univision channels – including UniVision, UniMas, Univision Deportes Network, Galavisién, Tlnovelas and FOROtv – have now restored normal service to Dish and DishLatino customers. This week, AT-T Inc. and Viacom Inc. entered into a new distribution agreement to avoid a blackout from Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon and other channels on ATT`s De DirecTV service. “We are pleased to have reached an agreement with DISH that recognizes the value of our best networks and channels,” said Vince Sadusky, CEO of Univision. From today, DISH and DishLATINO customers will be available again based on the program: Univision, UniM`s, Univision Deportes Network, Galavisién, Tlnovelas and FOROtv. A full list of packages can be dishlatino.com and in dish.com. Through Univision Communications Inc.
