ESPN confirmed it completed affiliate agreements with Adelphia that include launches of ESPNU and other Bristol nets. The deals follow the same scheme hammered out by Cox last Feb, in which the annual 20% hike will give way to a sliding scale where rates gradually decrease for an avg annual jump of 7%. The deals are said to last 10 years, but ESPN did not comment on terms. EchoStar remains the lone holdout among major operators. — Time Warner Cable inked a deal with Univision to offer all of the programmer’s networks- Galavision, TeleFutura and Univision-to its subs nationwide. Cable net Galavision is expected to roll out to Waco, TX; Rochester, NY; Raleigh, NC; Milwaukee, WI; Greensboro, NC; Northeast and Western OH; and NE. — Cablevision is the 1st MSO to launch NBC-U’s Telemundo Puerto Rico as it makes it available today to some 1.3mln digital subs in the NY metro area. Viewers are expected to be most interested in news reports from PR. It’ll also be part of CVC’s digital Spanish package.
