What is Univision?
Univision, initially founded in 1962 as the Spanish International Network with two stations, has grown to become a network with more than 60 affiliates in the U.S. The network adopted its current name in 1987, is now one of two major Spanish-language networks (along with Telemundo) operating in the U.S. The network also has distribution deals throughout the Americas.
Its programming is a mix of news, sitcoms and other comedies, variety shows, reality shows, and of course, telenovelas. It also created one of the longest-running shows in TV history, Sabado Gigante—a variety show that lasted 53 years, all hosted by the mighty Don Francisco.
It’s also a destination for soccer fans, especially those who like Mexican soccer. While Univision’s all-sports station TUDN broadcasts many of its matches, Liga MX and MLS matches sometimes land on Univision.
Stream Univision live: Which streaming services carry Univision?
You can catch a Univision live stream on the following streaming services.
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel now on board, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
Univision’s available either by getting Fubo Ultra or opting in for the all-Español Fubo Latino package.
AT&T TV Now
If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month. If you’re looking for Univision, you can get the Optimo Mas package geared toward Spanish-speaking audiences. You can also stream it at any AT&T Now package above Plus, from Choice through Ultimate.
If you have Univision through FuboTV, AT&T TV, or a cable provider, you can log in with your credentials and stream Univision shows live or on-demand.
If you want to stream programming from Univision and its UniMas sister station, including live sports, Univision Now is for you. It’s a standalone streaming service offering live and on-demand viewing of Univision and UniMas news, sports, telenovelas, variety shows, awards shows, children’s shows, movies, and more. Anything that’s aired on either network in the past 72 hours is viewable on Univision Now, and it has substantial archives as well.
