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 1989. It is broadcast in Spain and worldwide (especially North America, Hispanic Latin America, Equatorial Guinea and the Philippines).
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.
