In 2020, major media companies including Fox Corp. and Comcast rushed to acquire ad-supported streaming services so they could build out their over-the-top footprints and win over consumers. A year later, Spanish-language broadcaster Univision is following suit.
The broadcaster said this month that it would acquire the Spanish-language ad-supported streaming service Vix to build out its streaming assets, which include a soon-to-be-launched free ad-supported service called PrendeTV.
The acquisition is, according to Univision CEO Wade Davis, aimed at “building the most comprehensive, ad-supported streaming offering ever amassed for Latino audiences.”
