Univision Aligns with AT&T in Multiplatform Deal

NEW YORK/DALLAS: Univision Communications is making its content available across all of AT&T’s platforms, including U-verse TV, online, smartphones and tablets.

U-verse TV customers can watch the programming across various platforms and devices across multiple platforms, including live feeds of Univision networks in and outside of the home. The deal also includes the distribution of Univision’s networks—the Univision Network, TeleFutura and Galavisión—and a suite of five TV channels—De Película, De Película Clásico, Bandamax, Ritmoson and Telehit. Univision Deportes and Univision tlnovelas will launch in the coming weeks and FOROtv will launch later this year.

“Our agreement with AT&T speaks to the importance of the booming Hispanic consumer demographic and the opportunity to deliver subscriber growth through Univision’s platforms,” said Chris Fager, the senior VP of distribution sales and marketing at Univision Communications. “We are excited to expand our deal with AT&T as they maintain an ongoing commitment to the ever growing Hispanic community. This agreement allows both companies to continue to offer robust content options across all AT&T platforms to U.S. Hispanics.”
“We’re proud to expand our agreement with Univision to make more of their programming, including Spanish-language content, available to our U-verse TV customers,” added Richard Levine, the executive director of content at AT&T. “This agreement helps us with strategic content initiatives, and is another example of how we continue to bring our customers more value with high-quality content available on the screens they watch most.”
