Period: 1973–1976. Three years of promise and tribulation begin with Azcárraga Milmo’s reprieve of Anselmo for delinquent payment of fees, then Milmo’s merger that reorganizes Telesistema as the technology-rich new firm Televisa. He informs Anselmo that SIN soon will be delivered throughout the U.S. by Televisa’s satellites (Westars 1 & 2). However, no longer subsidized, Anselmo must pay the delinquent fees. A sports TV venture that is the first to televise soccer’s World Cup, MagnaVerde, fails. Anselmo devises a repayment plan that satisfies Azcárraga Milmo who defrays and provides satellite technology to SIN’s stations. SIN becomes the first U.S. network delivered by satellite. But the plan incenses Fouce Jr., an absentee owner yet the official chair of the board since protesting Anselmo’s appointment as SIN president in 1962. The repayment to Azcárraga Milmo will reduce Fouce’s shares of SIN. They engage in confrontation. Anselmo maneuvers and succeeds in ousting Fouce as chair. Fouce is more outraged. In the glow of a signal achievement, SIN’s delivery by satellite, Fouce files a lawsuit against SIN.
