Regional Spanish broadcaster Andalucía TV is set to return to Astra and Hispasat in Canal+ deal.

Canal Sur, the international channel from Radio Televisión de Andalucía (RTVA) is set to return to satellite DTH as a free-to-air channel thanks to a new distribution agreement with the Canal+ group.

Canal Sur started its satellite broadcasts in February 1996, but had to stop transmission this January due to lack of funds. The move led to disappointment with viewers of the channel in Spain and with expats in Germany and other countries; even viewers in Andalucia were affected by the removal of the DTH broadcasts, as terrestrial reception proved to be unsatisfactory in some parts of the province.
