Telecinco is a Spanish free-to-air television channel operated by Mediaset España Comunicación. The channel was previously known as Tele 5, because it had first begun its experimental transmissions on 10 March 1989, and a year later, it was officially launched on 3 March 1990, as well as it became the fifth of the national terrestrial television channels and the second private channel in Spain. In 1997, Tele 5 was rebranded as Telecinco, dropping the flower logo seen in other Mediaset channel logos.

In 2014, Telecinco was the most viewed channel in Spain with a share of 14,5%. Telecinco is a general channel catering for all audiences. It shows popular films, series, entertainment shows.

The channel's programming includes such series as La que se avecina, Sin tetas no hay paraíso, and Aída, as well as the entertainment shows Crónicas Marcianas and Hay una cosa que te quiero decir and the talent show The Voice.

The channel is also known for its reality shows, having produced a number of popular series in the last decade, Gran Hermano, Supervivientes, Hotel Glam, Operación Triunfo, amongst others. Reality shows feed many of the channel's other programmes such as the morning show El Programa de Ana Rosa, the afternoon and famous show Sálvame and the weekly discussion show Salvame Deluxe. All of these programmes experienced a substantial ratings boost thanks to the Reality Effect.
