Televisa, NBC ink biz news pact

MEXICO CITY — Barely a month after a major falling out between NBC and TV Azteca, the Peacock web has switched Mexican partners, inking a business news accord with Televisa.

NBC will both license programming and lease production facils to Mexico’s top media conglom for its April-launched newsnet Conexion Financiera, which is currently exclusive to Televisa and News Corp.-backed satcaster Sky Mexico.

The deal follows an agreement by Sky to carry both business newsnet CNBC and NBC-Microsoft news joint venture MSNBC.

Conexion’s U.S. operations will now be based at Fort Lee, N.J., the HQ of CNBC, which will also grant the Mexican web instant access and excerpting rights to all of its editorial and video content (to be dubbed or subtitled in Spanish). Further, Conexion and CNBC will explore the joint distribution of the two channels throughout Spanish-speaking Latin America and an arrangement whereby NBC would help distribute the Mexican net in the U.S.
