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.
