Buckeye Cablevision Inc.'s Buckeye CableSystem in Toledo, Ohio, has
temporarily put Fox Sports Español on its channel lineup to replace Univision,
official said Monday.

Univision Communications Inc. pulled its Spanish-language service's signal
off the 130,000-subscriber system Thursday in a dispute over license fees. It
has remained off since then.

On Saturday afternoon, Buckeye began running Fox Sports Español on
Univision's former channel space, said Tom Dawson, the cable system's senior
manager of government and community affairs.

The network will get that analog slot temporarily until Buckeye decides what
broad-appeal Spanish-language service it will permanently add to replace
Univision.

Fox Sports Español will ultimately be carried on Buckeye's digital tier in
April.

Prior to putting Fox Sports Español on, Buckeye had been running a crawl on
Univision's former channel telling viewers about its side of the dispute with
the programmer.
