Period: 1976–1986. A return to 1976 begins an account of a U.S. broadcast landmark: the demise of a TV network. Fouce’s lawsuit against SIN protracts when judges suspect violations of the foreign ownership rule making SIN an illegal firm. After ten years of proceedings, the FCC revokes SIN’s licenses and banishes Anselmo. The matter reverts to the original trial judge, Mariana Pfaelzer, who ends the lawsuit by persuading remaining SIN defendants to sell the firm. But, presiding over the sale, Pfaelzer affirms that, under the law, she cannot prevent the new owner from converting SIN from Spanish to English. On its pledge to preserve Spanish-language TV, Hallmark Cards becomes the new owner. Immediately, Hallmark is challenged. Needing to continue the network’s Televisa programming, Hallmark must pay Azcárraga’s huge fee. Then, the Reliance Insurance Company announces a rival network called “Telemundo.” Days before competition begins, Hallmark concludes a court-ordered reorganization by dissolving SIN and rechristening the network “Univision.”
