Controversies[edit]

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]
