ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of Mexican programming supplier Grupo Televisa SA to pursue a court order to relieve it of its programming supply pact with Univision Communications Inc. A spokesman from Televisa says Univision's sale would be convenient, as new owners might agree to a more lucrative programming deal for Televisa or give it a greater voice within Univision, which Televisa president and CEO Emilio Azcarraga Jean wants.
