Univison renews retrans for Verizon’s FiOS


American Spanish TV giant Univision Communications announced that it has secured a multi-year carriage agreement with Verizon’s FiOS TV. The deal covers the entire range of Univision’s networks and O&O stations.

The agreement with FiOS includes continued carriage of Univision’s owned and operated broadcast stations; affiliated stations owned and operated by Entravision Communications and Fisher Communications; and distribution of the cable network, Galavisión, and the network feeds for Univision and TeleFutura.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The FiOS renewal had been expected. Univision provided a surprise early this month when it announced a retrans renewal with Dish Network, where negotiations had been contentious.
