Televisa in soccer dispute

September 06, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Mexican media giant Grupo Televisa asked a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to decide whether Univision Communications Inc. has the rights to Mexican League soccer telecasts beyond Sept. 28.

Televisa, which owns three soccer teams, contends that its deal with Univision ends this month, allowing it to shop the TV rights to another broadcaster. Univision says it is entitled to the Mexican League games through 2017.

Separately, Televisa's battle to terminate its long-term programming pact with Univision is scheduled to go to trial Oct. 14 in Los Angeles.
