Univision tlnovelas is a Spanish language American cable television network dedicated to broadcasting telenovelas. It is owned by Univision Communications and has a programming partnership with Mexican media group Televisa. The channel launched on March 1, 2012.


Univision tlnovelas was announced in May 2011 as part of three new cable channels launched by Univision Communications.[1] Univision Communications reached its first pay TV deal with the Dish Network to carry the channels in January 2012.[2] Univision tlnovelas began broadcasting on March 1, 2012.[2] On May 11, 2012, AT&T U-verse signed a carriage agreement with Univision Communications to carry the channel, along with Univision Deportes Network.[3]


Programming for Univision tlnovelas is filled by Televisa's telenovela library, including telenovelas which have previously never aired in the United States.[1][4]

Carriage disputes[edit]

Univision tlnovelas, Univision, UniMás, Galavisión and Univision Deportes Network were dropped by AT&T U-verse on March 4, 2016, due to a carriage dispute.[5][6][7][8] This did not affected DirecTV customers (also a subsidiary of AT&T) as this was done in a different contract. Univision tlnovelas along with the rest of Univison's networks and channels were later returned to the U-verse lineup on March 24, 2016.[9][10][11][12]
