Both companies have agreed to extend access to Univision network until 1 am ET Saturday, while they continue to work on a new contract agreement.
Univision’s signal, blocked on A&T Uverse since last Friday, was brought back on the air yesterday starting at 8 pm, just in time for subscribers to watch the network’s primetime Democratic debate.
