TVE Internacional is an internationally broadcast Spanish-language channel run by Spain's national broadcaster, TVE. Programming includes a mix of news, discussion-based programmes and drama and documentaries from TVE's La 1 and La 2 Spanish networks. It was launched in December 1989. It broadcasts in Spain and worldwide (especially Latin America, Western Sahara, Equatorial Guinea and the Philippines, which are part of the former Spanish Empire).

Several news bulletins are provided during the day, covering a mixed Spanish and International agenda. Telediario is a bulletin produced for and also broadcast in Spain, simulcast on the international station. However, editions of Telediario Internacional are also produced specially for the channel. A daily showbiz magazine, Gente, is broadcast nightly at 7pm GMT.

A limited number of advertisements are shown on the channel. More usually, network commercial breaks on programmes broadcast live in Spain are covered with a clock and short information films about Spain and its wildlife, although sometimes the advertisements are shown.


In Europe, it was available free-to-air on Eutelsat Hot Bird 13° East until March 2014. Due to economic reasons, it moved its satellite distribution for Europe to Astra 19.2°E as of January 2014 alongside with 24 Horas and the RTVE radios (RNE Radio Nacional, RNE Radio Clásica, RNE Radio 3, RNE Ràdio 4, RNE Radio 5, Radio Exterior).

The channel can no longer be seen in Britain and Ireland through the Sky television platform on Eutelsat 33C at 28.5° East. In the Americas, it is available as part of RTVE's Digital Package for America on Hispasat 1C (encrypted). In Asia, it is available on AsiaSat 2 at 100.5° E and PanAmSat 8 at 166° E (both in the clear).
