The $13.7 billion bid to buy out Univision, has pretty much shut out rival Grupo Televisa from the auction, spelling trouble for Mexico’s largest broadcaster.

Or, 2. it could start hawking iPods: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Univision currently has no rights to air Televisa-produced novellas on iPods, cell phones or the Internet. A good lawyer and better leadership could help the company save face – and maybe even see a windfall.
