Spain’s audiovisual groups have decided which channels will close before 6 May if the government’s position doesn’t change: Xplora, Nitro, laSexta3, La Siete, Nueve, Net TV and Veo TV will all stop broadcasting within the coming weeks.
According to the newspaper El Pais, all the media groups have now made their decisions, although no closure dates have been unveiled.
The only confirmation has come through Twitter, on which Atresmedia’s VP, Mauricio Carlotti, said that the group will close Nitro, Xplora and laSexta3 if the government doesn’t intercede.
The associations of the audiovisual groups and private channels have pointed to the government as being responsible for the closures, and are asking for another solution. However no more moves are expected from the Ministry of Industry.
The Spanish Government, which is also looking to reorganise the radioelectric space in order to free more slots for LTE networks, had 18 months to make a decision since the first Supreme Tribunal’s sentence was published. But after several delays no alternative plan was presented and the Ministry of Industry decided to follow the tribunal’s decision.
