Mexican broadcasting company, Televisa, has won the Mexican broadcast rights for the London 2012 Olympics following a decision from the International Olympic Committee.
IOC Executive Board member Richard Carrión said:
“This is the first time we have negotiated rights directly in Mexico and we are delighted to continue our relationship with Televisa, whom we are certain will continue to provide fantastic coverage of the Games.”
Televisa is the second largest media conglomerate in Latin America and exports much of its programming to the United States through a contract with Univision. The company started in life in the 1950’s and is owned by the Azcárraga family.
