Nine TDT channels to close down

A total of nine Terrestrial Digital Television channels are set to close down by May 6th 2014 as a result of a 2012 Supreme Court ruling that cancelled out the concession of additional channels to existing broadcasters on the grounds that the concession was made without a public bid and that new operators were therefore deprived of a chance to join the market.

Channels closing down include:

  • La Sexta 3. Movie-based channels with a March audience share of 1.6 percent.
  • Xplora. Hardcore Pawn, in its 10th season, is the most popular program.
  • Nitro. Channel airs shows such as Law And Order and The A Team.
  • La Siete. Specializes in Latin American soaps.
  • Nueve. Re-runs of the most successful shows aired on Telecinco and Cuatro.
  • Net TV. Teleshopping.
  • Veo TV.
