HistoryEdit

Galavisión started on April 2, 1979, as a premium cable network, broadcasting a mix of classic and recent Mexican and other Spanish-language films as well as Spanish-dubbed recent Hollywood productions.

By 1984, the network became a general entertainment basic cable channel, offering a combination of Televisa programming and SIN reruns.

In the mid 1990s, Galavisión was led by Javier Saralegui and aired a mix of Spanish- and English-language programs like Kiki desde Hollywood or Funny is Funny. They also incorporated Miami-produced variety entertainment show A Oscuras Pero Encendidos, hosted by Paul Bouche. It complemented this strategy with Televisa-produced programs that first aired on Univision, with entertainment and some news programs from Televisa's all-news network ECO, including an Entertainment Tonight-style program anchored by Pita Ojeda and Ilia Calderón.

Since the year 2000, Galavisión aired a combination of classic comedy, telenovelas, and late night shows from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s that aired originally on Univision, with more present-day offerings from news, sports and specials originating from Televisa's three networks, Las Estrellas, FOROtv, and Gala TV as well as two shows produced by Televisa's music network, TeleHit.

On its most recent programming strategy, Galavisión expanded original productions with shows like Acceso máximo, En casa con Lucy, Delicioso (hosted by Ingrid Hoffmann), Vida total, Decorando contigo, Un destino, Lo mejor de boxeo en esta esquina, the best of sister network UniMás's Solo boxeo series.

The Televisa produced programming is also crafted to fit strict broadcast standards.

Sports and news programmingEdit

Galavisión's coverage of soccer, produced by Televisa, is done with a secondary or "clean" feed in which any references to Televisa are not shown and Galavisión supplants the feed with Univision's announcers and graphics. In the early days, Galavisión would use the whole Televisa feed while covering any Televisa promotions or sponsor tags with a green generic Galavisión border logo.

As for news programming, Galavisión, while owned by Univision Networks, has no news operations and instead airs newscasts from Televisa's networks Canal de las Estrellas, FOROtv, and Gala TV.

Because most of Mexico does not observe daylight saving time the same day as the United States, morning programs like "Despierta con Carlos Loret de Mola" are aired on an hour delay on Galavisión during said time, from the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in April and again during the week between the last Sunday in October and the first Sunday in April.

The channel launched in 1080i high definition on June 1, 2010.[34] DirecTV launched the channel in HD on August 15, 2013.

ControversiesEdit

Carriage disputesEdit

Galavisión, along with its sister channels, Univision, UniMás, Univision Deportes Network and Univision Tlnovelas were dropped by AT&T U-verse on March 4, 2016, due to a carriage dispute.[35][36][37][38] This did not affected DirecTV Customers (although it is a Subsidiary of U-Verse's parent company, AT&T) as this was done in a different contract before AT&T acquired DirecTV. All of Univision's networks, including Galavisión, were returned to the U-verse lineup on March 24, 2016 after finalizing a carriage deal.[39][40][41][42]

On January 27, 2017, Charter Spectrum (along with Time Warner Cable and Bright House, the latter merged with Charter Communications on 2016) faced another dispute with Univision, warning Charter Communications that Galavision and its sister channels could be removed from Charter by January 31, 2017. Prior to then, Univision sued Charter over pay carriage rates at the New York Supreme Court in July 2016. On January 31, 2017, Charter customers lost access to all of Univision's channels, including UniMás, and Galavisión (including access to its Owned-and-Operated Stations via Charter). On February 2, the New York Superior Court ordered Univision to end the blackout on Charter as negotiations continue.[43] This blackout affects all Univision affiliates, even if Univision doesn't own them, so this dispute includes all stations owned by Entravision Communications, even if Entravision was not involved in the dispute.[44][45]

On October 16, 2017 at around 5 PM EDT, Verizon FiOS, without any warning, pulled Univision, along with UniMás, UDN, and Galavisión despite an extension of an agreement arranged by the two.[46] It also caused FOROtv to be removed during the dispute as well, despite being not owned by Univision.
