The Univision challenge

In 2013, Univision, the largest provider of Spanish-language content in the United States, faced a challenge with its outdated CMS platform from a defunct vendor. This led to malfunctioning ad integrations, an inefficient publishing process, and a heavy reliance on IT.

  • ԾDz’s assets in the U.S. include the Univision and UniMás broadcast networks, nine Spanish-language cable networks, 59 television stations and 57 radio stations in major U.S. Hispanic markets, and the PrendeTV AVOD platform.
  • The Univision Network is the most-watched Spanish-language television network in the U.S., reaching 97% of Hispanic households.

The Brightspot solution for Univision

Today, over 70 Univision sites operate out of a single Brightspot instance—covering everything from news to sports to entertainment. Having moved to a series of headless implementations in 2019, the broadcaster enjoys the flexibility of a front-end delivery system that’s independent of both the back-end codebase and the needs of its 500-plus daily CMS users. An ever-growing list of multisite properties within the CMS benefit from shared content, roles, permissions, integrations and more.

  • Application development flexibility supports content licensing and localization at the site level.
  • ԾDz’s CMS user base has grown over 150% in the past five years, with ԾDz’s CMS site admins empowered to manage with zero IT overhead.
  • Univision has a platform able to scale and support large global events like the 2022 FIFA World Cup for audiences across the United States and Mexico.
