Abernethy’s passion for staying up-to-date on the industry’s latest technical advances— and modifications she’s made to UCI’s content distribution strategy as a result—ensure Univision content is distributed across multiple platforms and channels. Her relentless quest to identify companies with goals aligning with UCI led to a partnership with Verizon that offers telenovelas, sports, and VOD content on Verizon’s go90 mobile entertainment video platform.
