TVE HD was a high-definition channel run by the Spanish public broadcaster Televisión Española. The channel broadcast the 2008 Olympic Games in high-definition. It was available via pay-TV platforms Digital+ and Movistar TV, but not on digital terrestrial and free to air as originally planned the channel was available until its closure on 19 August. On 15 June 2009 the channel was relaunched again, now under the new TVE brand, only by digital terrestrial in Valladolid, in order to test the broadcasting capabilities of different HD formats. In 2010 new relay stations were added in Barcelona, A Coruña, Madrid, Seville, Zaragoza and programming was boosted with new programs.
