Ahead of the expiration of their existing agreement, Time Warner Cable and Univision inked a new carriage deal that will bring more networks to the MSO. Bright House is also part of the deal.

TWC will be among the 1st distributors to carry English-language  El Rey Network, in which Univision made an investment earlier this year. Comcast also is carrying the net, which was created by filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and FactoryMade Ventures. Also new to TWC is Univision Deportes, Univision tlNovelas and FOROtv. Deportes and tlNovelas will launch on TWC and Bright House in most Univision markets this week. El Rey launches later this year.

The multiplatform deal includes VOD, additional TVE content for TWC TV out-of-home and authenticated access to Univision’s UVideos and Univision Deportes digital properties. Also part of the deal is renewed distribution for Univision’s flagship broadcast and cable nets. The 2 also said they’ve reached a first-of-its-kind local news partnership to better service Hispanics in L.A, NYC and other shared markets.
