Univision and Verizon reach new deal

Univision Communications and Verizon have agreed to new terms, restoring Univision networks and stations across the Verizon footprint.

“Through this deal, Verizon has demonstrated that it is committed to providing Hispanic America with the critical news, information and content that they rely on. We look forward to furthering our partnership with Verizon across their platforms to best serve the needs of the Hispanic community”, said the network in a statement.

The dispute between both companies began last October, when Verizon removed the Spanish-language broadcaster from its Fios and mobile services.  At that time, Verizon said Univision was​ ​proposing​ ​an increase of more than double what they charge for access to their channels.
