Canal 24 Horas (Spanish pronunciation: [kaˈnal bejntiˈkwatɾo ˈoɾas], 24 Hour Channel) is TVE's 24-hour news channel. Having launched on Monday 15 September 1997, it is Spain's first news and information channel.

The channel produces news output and factual programmes for La 1, La 2 and TVE Internacional, and simulcasts most domestic news programmes aired on La 1.

Distribution[edit]

It was initially available on the Vía Digital digital satellite package on the Hispasat satellite at 30° West, and was encrypted, and thus mainly aimed to Spain, although it could also be seen simulcasted by TVE Internacional at certain times of the day. However, it eventually started simulcasting on the Eutelsat Hot Bird and SES Astra satellite system in the clear, moving later to free-to-air digital transmissions on the same satellite at a later date.

Currently, the channel is available on the Astra 1KR and Hispasat 1D satellites at 19.2°E and 30°W respectively as part of the Digital + package for Spain only, on the Eutelsat Hot Bird 2 satellite at 13°E for the whole of Europe, and the Hispasat 1C satellite at 30°W for the Americas until March 2006. Afterwards it will only be possible to receive TVE through Spanish packages offered by Dish Network and DirectTV in the Americas.

Since November 2005, it has also been available on digital terrestrial television in Spain.

La 1 simulcasts the channel between 03.00 (local time) and 07.00.
