DISH Statement on Univision’s Latest Blackout

“While we again offered to extend our existing agreement so that negotiations could continue without further impacting our customers, unfortunately, Univision refused. Instead, Univision has blocked Univision Deportes, FOROtv, TLNovelas and El Rey from DishLATINO customers.

“The Univision story remains the same: its content, on the whole, continues to decline in viewership, and as a result, the economics of their proposals do not make sense. Meanwhile, Univision continues to sell its direct-to-consumer product, Univision NOW, at a lower price than Univision proposes charging DISH customers. We don’t think that’s right. 

“We are doing everything we can to take care of our customers, including a $5 per month credit for DishLATINO customers, replacement content and, in markets where Univision is available over the air at no cost, free OTA antennas.”
