Univision scored a big legal win on Friday, when Judge Phillip Gutierrez ruled in its favor in the internet rights case against Televisa.
The judge ruled that Televisa cannot broadcast its shows over the internet in the U.S., because it would violate the 25-year exclusive distribution deal with Univision. Televisa said it will appeal.
While it cannot plug its shows online in the U.S., Televisa told the L.A. Times that Univision doesn’t have those rights either and that it “would vigorously oppose any such frivolous claim by Univision that it does.”
Earlier this year, Televisa reached an out of court settlement with Univision on its programming deal, which ends in 2017.
