Spain's cultural channel in April
Spain's national public broadcaster RTVE is working hard to set up the country's first cultural channel to be called Cultural.es. A DTT channel created by the country's Ministry of Culture and RTVE, the channel will start tests in April with official transmissions set to begin a year after, coinciding with national analogue switch off.
The new channel will offer all about Spain's cultural activity and it will not only be transmitted in Spanish but in the country's other official languages, Vasque, Catalan and Galician.
RTVE will manage the channel and it will include in its yearly budget the necessary amounts for its running either from its own activities or from other collborators such as cultural associations.
