The network co-founded by Martin Luther King III and Andrew Young has finalized a deal with a broadcaster to expand its presence, reports Deadline.com.
The deal between digital network Bounce TV and broadcaster Univision will make Bounce TV a multicast channel that will appear on 62 Univision-owned stations. It will be in major markets including San Francisco, Boston, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Raleigh and Tampa, the story reports.
