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.



In Europe, it was available free-to-air on Eutelsat Hot Bird 13° East until March 2014.

The channel can no longer be seen in Britain and Ireland through the Sky television platform on Eutelsat 33C at 28.5° East. In the Americas, it is available as part of RTVE's Digital Package for America on Hispasat 1C (encrypted).
