Liberty Cablevision dropped Telemundo, NBC and NBCUniversal cable networks (Universo, USA, MSNBC, Bravo, E!, SYFY, CNBC, Oxygen, Golf Channel, and Universal Kids) in Puerto Rico.
“It’s a sad day for Liberty Cablevision subscribers in Puerto Rico since their cable company decided to drop Telemundo, NBC, and additional leading networks. NBCUniversal agreed to a deal that made significant concessions and reflected the realities in Puerto Rico to accommodate the concerns Liberty has raised. Liberty Cablevision also agreed to this deal before the Liberty Latin America Board rejected it. NBCUniversal remains ready to sign the deal that we thought had been accepted by Liberty last week or discuss an alternative proposal that reflects the value of our networks. Telemundo has a proud history in Puerto Rico and will continue to help the island rebuild while investing in leading Spanish-language news, sports, and entertainment, which will remain available on DIRECTV and DISH in Puerto Rico. Liberty subscribers should visit www.necesitotelemundo.com
or call 855-5-TELEMUNDO to switch providers,” expressed NBCUniversal in a statement.
Telemundo shows that were dropped include Día @ Día, Jay y Sus Rayos X, Dando Candela, Raymond y Sus Amigos, Telenoticias, La Voz, Exatlón, Alexandra a las 12,
