The following can be attributed to DISH Network:
"We are actively working to reach a fair deal before the contract between DISH and Univision expires knowing that only Univision can choose to take its content away from DISH and Sling customers.
"Negotiations are standard in the pay-TV industry. Univision is demanding a rate increase of 75 percent for channels whose ratings have declined by nearly a third over the past five years. This from a company that lost its ability to offer the World Cup not just this year but in 2022 and 2026.
"And remember, many DISH customers are able to receive Univision for free using over-the-air antennas.
"We are unsure why Univision decided to involve customers in the contract negotiation process at this point. There is still time for the two parties to reach a mutually beneficial deal.”
