Cultural·es was a Spanish television channel owned by TVE. The service was only available on Digital+ and was launched in 1994. Cultural.es aired documentaries produced in Spanish and features programming on a variety of themes. Through its original programming, which also includes biographies and travel programmes, Cultural.es seeks to promote Spanish culture and history.
Cultural.es was originally known as Hispavisión from its 1994 launch until 2005, and Docu TVE (also known as Docu) from 2005 until 22 April 2009, when the channel became "Cultural.es".
TVE was planning to revamp Cultural.es as Canal Cultura ("Culture Channel") in 2011. However, the channel ceased transmission on 1 September 2010 and closed definitely on 1 January 2011 citing economical difficulties as the reason. The programming broadcast in Cultural.es would slowly integrated into TVE's La 2 network, which in turn became the broadcaster's cultural channel in September 2010. Because of the transition and also the completion of digital switchover throughout Spain, sports and children's programming on La 2 were also slowly integrated to TVE's digital thematic channels: Teledeporte and Clan, respectively.
The network bases its schedule on a different type of programming for each day of the week:
Monday: Current affairs
Wednesday: Science and Technology
Thursday: Art & Culture
Friday: Nature & Ecology
