Univision and AT&T agree to another extension

Univision and AT&T have agreed to yet another extension as they continue carriage negotiations.

The pact, announced early Saturday, keeps Univision’s network and TV stations available to U-Verse customers until 5 p.m. Eastern time Monday. The news pushes the previous extension deadline that was set for Saturday.

However, Univision’s other networks — including UniMas and Galavision — are not covered by the extension and continue to remain off the air.

Univision stations and networks were removed on March 4 from AT&T’s U-Verse pay-TV system, which serves about 6 million homes nationwide. But soon after the blackout, the two media companies agreed to restore service for the main Univision network to allow Spanish-speaking viewers to watch the Univision-hosted Democratic debate.

Univision and its stations have remained on since then through several extensions.
