DISH subscribers at risk of losing Univision Deportes Network, says broadcaster

DISH Network subscribers are at risk of losing Univision Deportes Network, says Univision.

Currently, the Univision Deportes Network is the only Univision-related channel available to DISH Network subscribers after a carriage dispute since June 30 resulted in channels being removed from DISH that included Univision, UniMas and Galavision.

While DISH Network subscribers have enjoyed watching Univision Deportes Network despite the carriage dispute, the availability of Univision Deportes Network on DISH is about to end unless an agreement is reached soon.

That means no more Liga MX, Copa MX, UEFA Champions League, Europa League, Mexican national team games, MLS or Bundesliga for DISH Network subscribers via Univision Deportes Network.

It’s possible that the decision may be a permanent one. If so, it’ll force many DISH Network subscribers into a difficult decision whether to leave DISH Network or move to a different service such as DIRECTV or fuboTV.

The fact that DISH Network has been unable to agree terms with Univision Deportes Network is a huge blow to soccer fans.

According to a statement issued by Univision, “DISH is close to further gutting its Spanish-language offering by dropping Univision Deportes Network, leaving its customers without access to more than 1,100 top-tier soccer matches.

“We want what is best for our audience and we remain open and willing to negotiate. However, if DISH won’t negotiate or is unwilling to come to reasonable terms, we are confident that our audience will continue to access our content from other distributors as they are already doing in droves.”
