Statement from Univision Communications Inc. Regarding Charter Communications, Inc.


A judge who was temporarily assigned to our case today said that she planned to issue an order that Univision’s networks and stations had to be restored on Charter Spectrum for 7 days. This order only lasts until February 9, when the judge permanently assigned to the litigation is back in court. For the 7-day period that it is receiving Univision’s services, Charter Spectrum will be required to post a bond covering the actual market value of Univision’s programming, rather than the inadequate rates that Charter Spectrum has been paying.

Univision remains ready and willing to meet at any time with Charter Spectrum to engage in comprehensive, good-faith negotiations for the long-term carriage of our stations and networks. To date, Charter Spectrum has steadfastly refused to engage in such negotiations.

Declaración de Univision Communications Inc. sobre Charter Communications, Inc.


Una jueza que fue asignada temporalmente a nuestro caso dijo hoy que planeaba emitir un fallo para volver a distribuir las cadenas y estaciones de Univision en Charter Spectrum por 7 días. Esta orden solo tiene vigencia hasta el 9 de febrero, que es cuando el juez asignado permanentemente al litigio volverá al tribunal. Se requiere que durante el periodo de 7 días que Charter Spectrum reciba los servicios de Univision, pague una fianza que cubra el valor real de

Univision en el mercado en vez de las tarifas inadecuadas que Charter Spectrum ha estado pagando. Univision sigue listo y dispuesto a reunirse en cualquier momento con Charter Spectrum a fin de participar en negociaciones integrales de buena fe para que distribuya a largo plazo nuestras estaciones y cadenas. Hasta la fecha, Charter Spectrum se ha rehusado firmemente a participar en dichas negociaciones.
