Univision blocks 3 channels for Dish, DishLatino over rate hike disagreement

Monday 2 July 2018 | 10:04 CET | News
Univision has blocked DishLatino and Dish customers from accessing three of its channels, namely Univision and UniMas (including local affiliates), and Galavision. The move means that Sling customers also cannot access any Univision channel via DishLatino and Dish. Dish said the move comes after Univision asked for 75 percent higher rates for the channels. Dish noted that ratings for the flagship Univision channel has declined nearly 10 percent since 2012 and that Univision failed to secure rights for the current World Cup, as well as the World Cup in 2022 and 2026.
