Spain’s Supreme Court will meet on June 23 to decide on whether to order the closure of eight DTT channels.

According to El Economista, the decision, which result in a huge blow for Mediaset and Atresmedia, the country’s two leading broadcasters, has caused a confrontation between by vice president Soraya Sáenz de Santamaria and José Manuel Soria, the industry minister.

The broadcasters have spent several months pushing to have the audiovisual law amended ahead of the Supreme Court ruling in order to nullify what is expected to be an unfavourable ruling.

If the closure is approved, Mediaset will lose four channels (Energy, Divinity, Boing and FDF) and be left solely with Telecinco and Cuatro. Meanwhile, Atresmedia will have to close Neox and Nova, retaining Antena 3, La Sexta and the new channel replacing Gol TV.

  1. On the 8th Aug we lost La1, La2 and 24, no other TDT channel was affected. The screen says La1 is on new frequency!!! Any ideas???

    • Well if La1 is on a new frequency, you will need to perform a channel scan to locate La1 on its new frequency.

      However, as far as I am aware, I think only La 1 HD moved to a new frequency, and La 1, La 2 and 24 should stil be on the same frequency.
      So if a channel scan does not get back La 1, La 2 and 24,then you will need your tv aerial system looking at, perhaps you have an old aerial, or it is not aligned correctly, or you need an amplifer.
