After a 9 month blackout, Univision and Sling TV’s parent company Dish have struck a deal to bring Univision back to Dish. So far sadly no mention of them returning to Sling TV and from the looks of the press release, Univision is not coming back to Sling TV.
Update: Sling TV has confirmed that Univision is not coming to Sling. Sling TV says you can still get Univision directly via the Univision Now and Univision Deportes apps or with your antenna.
“We want to thank our Dish customers for their patience as we worked to reach an agreement that is fair to all parties, especially our customers,” said Erik Carlson, Dish president and CEO. “For more than 20 years, DISH has led our industry in serving the U.S. Hispanic community, and today’s announcement is reflective of our commitment to delivering quality content at the right value.”
“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with Dish that recognizes the value of our top-rated networks and stations,” said Univision chief executive officer Vince Sadusky. “We look forward to once again providing Dish and DishLatino customers with the news, sports, and entertainment content they love.”
