“Our Facebook partnership is an exciting opportunity for these fans to experience this great soccer in the language of their choice,” said Tonia O’Connor, Univision's chief commercial officer and president of content distribution. “TV options have evolved from broadcast to cable to SVOD [subscription video on demand]. Now Facebook represents the next wave of TV and, given its scale, they are an ideal partner to distribute our Liga MX matches in English.”
The second leg of Liga MX's Apertura final on Univision and UDN drew 3.3 million viewers, making the Tigres-Club America game the top-rated Apertura final match in 10 years.
UDN, which launched in 2012, was the only sports network to achieve year-over-year increase in viewing and the increase of 33 percent made it the fastest-growing of any TV network, regardless of genre or language, in primetime.
