DALLAS, March 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The following can be attributed to Jim Cicconi, AT&T Senior Executive Vice President – External and Legislative Affairs:
"It's unfortunate the owners of Univision not only have blocked U-Verse customers from seeing their channels, but also have stooped to despicable allegations in an effort to extort an outrageous price increase -- an increase which ultimately will come at the expense of all our customers, including Univision viewers. Spanish-language channels are important to us and our customers. AT&T's focus is to offer a wide range of content for our Hispanic viewers, while keeping cost increases, and bills, down as much as possible. If Univision really cares about their audiences, they will immediately restore their channels to U-Verse homes while we figure this out. Go to att.com/FightingForYou to learn more."
