The largest affiliate partner for Univision Communications‘ two broadcast TV networks has solidified a new agreement that will ensure its Univision and UniMás stations keep their programming in place for several years.
Entravision Communications Corp. inked the new affiliation agreement and a new proxy agreement with Univision on Thursday (10/5).
“We have a longstanding and productive relationship with Univision and are pleased to extend our partnership through 2026,” said Entravision Chairman/CEO Walter F. Ulloa. “Univision shares our commitment to the growing U.S. Latino market and we will continue to work together to best serve our local communities. Entravision remains focused on providing leading news, information and entertainment content across all of our media platforms in order to reach, engage and benefit our audiences and advertising partners.”
Under the new affiliation agreement, Univision will continue to provide Entravision’s existing Univision and UniMás network affiliate stations the right to broadcast Univision network and UniMás network programming in their respective markets.
Under the new proxy agreement, Univision will continue to negotiate the terms of retransmission consent agreements for Entravision’s Univision and UniMás network affiliate television stations in markets in which the two companies do not both own television stations.
In addition, the company also entered into new amended and restated joint sales agreements, under which Entravision will continue to provide sales and marketing services for Univision and UniMás network affiliate television stations owned by Univision in Albuquerque, Boston, Denver, Orlando, Tampa and Washington, D.C.
The term of each of these new agreements extends through Dec. 31, 2026, except in Orlando, Tampa and Washington, where the affiliate agreements will expire on Dec. 31, 2021.
Each of these new agreements replaces its respective predecessor agreements.
