A nasty battle between the nation’s largest Spanish-language broadcaster and the second-largest cable company has resulted in Univision pulling its channels from millions of Charter-Spectrum customers.
This dispute involves Charter’s recent merger with Time Warner Cable, which propelled the formerly mid-tier pay-TV/broadband provider into the rarified air of industry giants like Comcast and DirecTV.
Even though the merged company retained the “Charter” name, Univision says the cable provider insists on paying a carriage rate negotiated for the much larger Time Warner Cable.
TWC’s size allowed it to negotiate better carriage deals with broadcasters, but Univision and others have alleged that Charter is illegally seeking to pay that lower rate.
Unable to reach a deal, Univision ordered Charter to pull its channels — including UniMas, Galavision, Univision Deportes, and its flagship namesake network — from all Charter customers’ cable listings nationwide.
Charter obliged this request, and these stations went dark overnight, but in a statement to Consumerist, Charter maintains that, “We have a contract with Univision and we expect them to honor it.”
Univision, in a separate statement, argues that Charter has “continually rejected all of Univision’s repeated, good-faith efforts to reach an agreement. As a result, Charter has decided to deny its subscribers continued access to Hispanic America’s most popular entertainment and sports, and most trusted news content.”
With the Time Warner Cable acquisition, Charter is now the largest cable-TV provider in Los Angeles and New York City.

TUDN (TV network)
"TUDN" redirects here. It is not to be confused with TUDN (brand).
TUDN (pronounced tu-de-ene; formerly called Univision Deportes Network (abbr. UDN) is an American Spanish languagesports channel. Owned by Univision Communications, it is an extension of the company's sports division of the same name. It launched on April 7, 2012, along with Univision Tlnovelas and FOROtv.
The network's main properties include major soccer events in the Americas, including per-team coverage of Liga MX, the Spanish portion of the Major League Soccer package, the Copa América, and CONCACAF's Champions League and Gold Cup events. In 2018-19, it also became the Spanish rightsholder of the UEFA Champions League. The channel has ties with the Mexican sports channel of the same name, sharing some of its programming. Before July 20, 2019, when the Mexican counterpart was known as Televisa Deportes Network (TDN), the channel was referred to as Univision TDN during these programs. In 2019, it was announced that TDN and UDN would jointly relaunch as TUDN—signifying a greater amount of collaboration between the two channels.
As of February 2015, approximately 39.7 million households (34.1% of those with television) receive the channel. Univision stated per Nielsen ratings that TUDN was the sixth-highest rated U.S. sports channel in 2019 in terms of average primetime viewership.
In May 2011, Univision Communications announced three new cable television channels to strengthen its position in the Latino market and diversify revenues, including one dedicated to Soccer and other sports. It signed a deal with the Dish Network in January 2012 to carry the channels via satellite. The channel dedicated to sports was named Univision Deportes Network. On May 11, 2012, AT&T U-verse signed a carriage agreement with Univision Communications to carry the channel, along with Univision Tlnovelas.
At launch, it offered a secondary network known as Univision Deportes Network Dos airing repeats of matches and studio programming, which was exclusively carried by Dish, but is currently defunct.
In May 2019, it was announced that both Univision Deportes Network and Televisa Deportes Network would be jointly rebranded as TUDN. The new branding is a combination of abbreviations TDN and UDN, but the first two letters are also pronounced as the Spanish adjective "tu" (your), allowing the name to also be read as "Tu deportes network" ("Your sports network"). TUDN will be promoted as a multi-platform brand, and there will be closer collaboration between the American and Mexican channels—allowing for expanded studio programming in the morning and daytime hours (to bolster its expansion into European soccer with its recent acquisition of UEFA rights, and existing content such as Liga MX soccer). Univision Deportes Network officially rebranded as TUDN on July 20, 2019.

The network's signature program is Univision Deportes Fútbol Club, an hour-long sports update show hosted by Xavi Sol (as of late 2017) alongside Félix Fernández and Hristo Stoichkov. There was a late-night version of the program hosted by Alejandro Berry, son of former news and sports anchor Jorge Berry, with various rotating analysts. The two editions of Fútbol Club differed by tone and style, with the early evening version being more lighthearted and comedic, while the late night version consisted of a round table discussion regarding the day's action (similar in format to ESPN's Around the Horn). The latter version was later renamed "Linea de Cuatro".
TUDN broadcasts home games for 16 of 18 teams in the Liga MX, away matches for the rest of the teams and playoff games. The weekly Saturday night program – Fútbol Central hosted by Edgar Martinez – features football highlights and previews matches from the Mexican league. Other competitions covered include the CONCACAF Champions League and Major League Soccer. Rights to MLS games in 2012 are shared with sister networks Galavision and UniMás.
In January 2016, Univision acquired Spanish-language rights to UEFA tournaments beginning in 2018, including UEFA Euro 2020 and the UEFA Nations League, with the channel planned to be involved in coverage. In 2017, Univision acquired Spanish-language rights to the UEFA Champions League and Europa League beginning in 2018-19.
In 2013, it acquired the U.S. Spanish-language rights to Formula One. However, ESPN Deportes acquired Formula One rights starting in 2020.

Univision Deportes Network, Univision, UniMás, Galavisión and Univision Tlnovelas were dropped by AT&T U-verse on March 4, 2016, due to a carriage dispute. This did not affect DirecTV Customers (although being a subsidiary of U-Verse's parent company, AT&T), as this was done in a different contract. All of Univision's channels were returned to the U-verse lineup on March 24, 2016.

Comcast agrees to carry Univision Deportes sports network
Cable giant Comcast Corp. has agreed to add Spanish-language sports channel Univision Deportes to its programming lineup.
The deal comes amid strife between the two companies, heightened with Comcast’s proposed $45-billion takeover of Time Warner Cable. Univision Chief Executive Randy Falco has openly criticized the merger, saying it could stifle competition and hurt programmers.
Falco this year noted that his company’s fast-growing Univision Deportes sports channel was carried by most major distributors — except Comcast.
The Philadelphia cable company owns NBC, NBC Sports and Spanish-language network Telemundo, which directly competes with Univison’s sports and entertainment networks.
This week’s breakthrough came after more than a year of negotiations, and four months after Falco publicly aired his concerns about the proposed merger.
Beginning next month, Comcast will include Univision Deportes in packages offered to about 12 million Comcast subscribers.
A Comcast spokesman downplayed the timing of the Univision Deportes deal. He said the company only recently came to terms on a deal deemed to be in the best interest of its subscribers.
“Univision Deportes Network offers terrific programming and will be a great addition to our growing lineup of networks for Hispanic customers,” Marcien Jenckes, a Comcast executive vice president, said in a company statement. “Comcast is already the nation’s largest provider of Latino packages.”
Juan Carlos Rodriguez, Univision’s sports president, said: “We are pleased to expand the reach of Univision Deportes Network and our popular sports content through this deal with Comcast.”
If Comcast succeeds in its Time Warner Cable takeover, it would become the dominant provider in the nation’s largest markets — where more than three-quarters of U.S. Latinos live.
Comcast would dominate in diverse markets such as Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Miami and much of Northern California.
The deal would make it an even bigger powerhouse in television distribution, with nearly 30 million pay-TV customers and about 29 million high-speed Internet subscribers.
Several companies, including Netflix and Dish Network, have raised concerns with the federal government about Comcast’s increasing heft. Some programmers, including Univision, have tried to leverage Comcast’s pending application before the Federal Communications Commission to extract more favorable terms in their business dealings with Comcast.
Late last month, 15 members of the California Assembly sent a letter to Comcast Chief Executive Brian Roberts and Time Warner Cable Chief Executive Rob Marcus, asking them to consider broader distribution for independent Spanish-language networks, including Estrella TV.
The Burbank network, owned by Liberman Broadcasting, is available in 7.8 million Latino homes, representing just a fraction of the country.
“Despite distribution challenges, Estrella TV has grown to become the fourth largest Spanish-language broadcaster in the U.S.,” the letter signed by the lawmakers said. “Yet Estrella TV has been thwarted in their efforts to gain distribution in this increasingly consolidated media environment.”
Comcast carries Estrella TV in some markets -- but its supporters would like Comcast to offer the network more widely.
Blima Tuller, chief financial officer of Liberman Broadcasting, said that Comcast’s increased market share would give it tremendous influence over programming choices for Spanish-speaking viewers.
The company could “shut out independent and minority broadcasters that lack the leverage and power of multiple networks, preventing TV viewers from being able to watch the programming they would like to see,” she said.
