Parent Category: News | 06-02-2014

TVE has launched an online platform offering over 5,000 documentaries on-demand for all kinds of connected screens.

The public network offers both the latest productions from Spain and all the documentaries from the channel's archive.

Somos Documental has been created by TVE's interactive department and will also offer La 2's documentaries. The platform is built on four premises: 20 new documentaries will premiere every week; RTVE's archive will be available for the viewer; a blog will give up-to-date information related to the Spanish documentary industry; and TVE will produce Web documentaries specifically for online broadcast.

The online platform will also offer themed programming, starting this week with the celebration of the Goya Awards. Somos Documental will stream Spanish documentaries related to cinema selected by experts in the field.

All the latest audience successes on TVE such as Comprar, Tirar, Comprar and Allende Caso Cerrado will be available along with the network's classics like El Hombre y la Tierra and Documentos TV. The 5,000-plus titles will be organised by category to simplify viewers' selection.

TVE keeps concentrating on production of documentaries and is already leading the industry. Among its productions and collaborations, the network supports over 50 new documentaries every year.
