An ‘Expedited’ Solution To Charter-Univision Stalemate?


There will be no absence of Pequeños Gigantes USA, Vino el Amor or Despierta América for Univision viewers who receive the network — along with Univision Communications’ broadcast network sibling UniMás and pay-TV giant Galavisión — for Charter Spectrum subscribers through the end of June.

In a statement sent to RBR + TVBR late Tuesday, Univision Communications said it and Charter “have agreed to forego a preliminary injunction hearing and instead will pursue an expedited schedule that will allow the court to rule on the dispute more quickly.”

Explaining the move, Univision said, “We are committed to serving our audience and ensuring that they have access to the Univision networks they value.”

The settlement includes a hefty bond that Charter is set to post, and we’ve got the financial details as stated in the official Stipulation and Order.
