The negotiations between AT&T and Univision over distribution appear to be progressing as UniMas and Galavision, networks under Univision’s portfolio, were restored Thursday to AT&T U-verse customers.

Talks between Univision and AT&T have yielded a series of extensions.

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 media companies agreed to restore service for the flagship Univision network to allow its viewers to watch the Univision-hosted Democratic debate.

Univision’s other networks — including UniMas and Galavision — were not covered by that agreement, nor by any of the extensions worked out between the companies, and had remained off the air until Thursday.
