July 21, 2006 at 6:09 AM (PT)
GRUPO TELEVISA is taking UNIVISION to LOS ANGELES COUNTY Superior Court over the right to stream TELEVISA TV programming on the Internet.
TELEVISA, which says it's still considering a bid to buy UNIVISION despite the latter having already accepted an offer from a rival group headed by producer HAIM SABAN, says that UNIVISION is prohibited under the terms of the parties' present programming deal from streaming the shows on the Net, but TELEVISA can do so after next DECEMBER. TELEVISA has asked the court for a declaratory judgement.
