Statement Update from Univision Communications Inc. Regarding Verizon’s Decision to Drop Our Signal

By Univision PR Team

Oct 20, 2017

NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 20, 2017 – During the past week our viewers, political leaders, and community groups have spoken out about how important Univision’s networks and stations are for providing information and news to the Hispanic community, especially in light of recent natural disasters. We share their disappointment that Univision’s networks and stations are not available on Verizon. While Verizon unilaterally and without notice removed us from its systems on Monday evening after rejecting our proposal and extension offer, we remain committed to negotiations.  We stand ready to review any fair proposal from Verizon that doesn’t devalue Spanish language programming and dismiss the needs of its audience.
