Spectrum TV Select and Mi Plan Latino customers that receive TelevisaUnivision channels as part of their live TV package will get access to the ViX streaming service later this year, and at no additional cost.

Last week, ViX confirmed plans to launch a new ad-supported tier, and it is this new Premium with Ads plan that eligible Spectrum TV Select and Mi Plan Latino customers will soon get for free. With ViX’s Premium with Ads tier, Spectrum customers will get access to the entire ViX library, including originals and exclusives, as well as more live sports, including exclusive live soccer matches.

According to the announcement, “the combination of ViX’s premium streaming programming with TelevisaUnivision’s market leading linear channels will create an unmatched Spanish-language content offering available to Spectrum customers at no incremental cost.”

While it remains unclear exactly when the new ad-supported plan will go live, ViX did previously state it is due to arrive later this year. Following today’s announcement, it is now expected that eligible Spectrum TV customers will gain access to the ‘with ads’ ViX plan soon after it launches in general.

The addition of ViX is part of a wider multi-year agreement between TelevisaUnivision and Charter, and similar to the deal Charter struck with Disney last year, the TelevisaUnivision agreement also includes a streaming element. This further highlights Charter’s new approach and framework that involves bundling streaming services with its live TV packages.

We appreciate TelevisaUnivision’s willingness to fully support our new distribution framework, which is good for customers and a significant step forward for the video ecosystem,” said Tom Montemagno, Executive Vice President, Programming Acquisition for Charter. “With this agreement, our customers will continue to enjoy access to TelevisaUnivision’s extensive Spanish-language programming, including entertainment and live sports, across multiple platforms. This furthers our goal of providing value to customers by including streaming apps with Spectrum services.”

As part of the same announcement, Charter also confirmed that it plans to soon begin offering “a new, innovative, low-cost Spanish-language internet-delivered video package” in the coming months. While details on this package remain limited, Charter did confirm TelevisaUnivision’s U.S. channels will be included with the new low-cost Spanish-language live TV plan.
