Univision has launched a 24 hour Spanish language streaming news service.

Called Noticias Univision 24/7, the service launched Dec. 1, 2021 via Spanish language streamer PrendeTV, which includes Univision’s service as part of its news category.

At launch, the service features three distinct blocks of anchored programming.

“La Voz de la Mañana” (The Voice of the Morning) airs Monday through Friday 7 to 9 a.m. eastern. Hosted by Carolina Sarassa, Paulina Sodi and Maity Interiano the morning news program kicks off the day in a welcoming and conversational setting, featuring reporters from across the country, influential DJs, and experts who talk about a variety of topics, including finance, health, education, wellness, lifestyle, social media trends, sports, and more.

“Noticias Univision 24/7 Daytime” airs every day from 1 to 3 p.m. eastern and is hosted by Andrea Linares and Borja Voces. This daily live newscast brings breaking news and up-to-the-minute coverage of the most relevant trending topics.

“Noticias Univision 24/7 Primetime” is offered 7 to 9 p.m. easter and sees Aylen del Toro and Carolina Rosario presenting the most relevant news of the day with commentary from some of the most trusted anchors and reporters from across the entire Univision news division at the local, national, and international level.

“Noticias Univision 24/7” also presents the local editions of “Edición Digital,” from New York and Los Angeles, as well as the best of Univision’s flagship programs “Despierta América,” “Primer Impacto” and “El Gordo y La Flaca.”

Outside of these hours, it’s not clear what programming will be provided, though it’s common for streamers to run repeats of earlier programming or offer “hostless” coverage using fullscreen graphics and text.

Univision had previously announced a partnership with ABC News in 2012 to launch a 24 hour English language cable news channel. It would eventually launch as Fusion in 2013, though the channel ultimately took on a different format than just a cable news channel.

Fusion is slated to shut down Dec. 31, 2021.
