Univision has many local stations, but it is widely available for purchase through satellite and cable providers. Local stations are programmed with location-specific Spanish-language news and reporting in order to tailor station content more directly toward the viewers in any given programming area.

As of 2015, the channel was competitive even with major English-language broadcast networks, placing highly in terms of viewership and program share. In addition to its local broadcasts and satellite and cable availability, the channel is also viewable via streaming and in clips; full episodes are also available on the Univision website where large video libraries are maintained for registered users.

The network's major draw is its extremely regular production of telenovelas. These programs are broadcast every week of the year on a clockwork schedule, allowing viewers the freedom to watch something new on an almost constant basis without having to wait for seasonal changes or rebroadcasts.
