Univision has pulled the plug on Fusion TV, the cable network it initially conceptualized as an English-language news and lifestyle channel targeting millennial Latinos. But it ended up being a mish-mash with no true identity that ended up being a convoluted money-losing mess.
The network ceased operations today, December 31. Its rocky tenure lasted 8 years. In a statement about Fusion’s demise Univision said the company its “sole focus” in 2022 will be on Spanish-language audiences and the launch of its new streaming service.
The move puts an end to a project that had a lot of promise but ended as a failed experiment that started with Univision partnering with ABC to launch Fusion as a joint venture.
