World Cup ratings bonanza for Univision, Telemundo next?

|By:, SA News Editor

Univision continued its impressive World Cup ratings this week with 5.1M viewers tuning in for the coverage of the U.S.-Belgium knockout stage game.

The network also scored another 1.8M viewers through its streaming service.

Though the rating bonanza is well-timed with Univision a rumored target of CBS and Time Warner, there's a bittersweet element to the payday after the network lost the rights to the 2018 and 2022 World Cup to Comcast (CMCSA) property Telemundo.
