Univision to make shows available on YouTube

Univision, the biggest Hispanic broadcaster in the U.S., says its shows will be coming to YouTube in the new year. Videos to be made available include the talk show "El Show de Cristina," based in Miami, and the murder thriller series, "Mujeres Asesinas."

But they won't include popular telenovelas from its Mexican production partner Grupo Televisa SA because of a legal dispute preventing either from putting Televisa content on the Internet in the U.S.

YouTube, the online video site of Google Inc., will share advertising revenue with Univision Communications Inc. after content begins appearing early in the first quarter of next year.

YouTube says its U.S. Hispanic audience is one of its fastest growing demographics, with 6.5 million adult viewers per month, up 80 percent from a year ago.
