The story of our adventure in Spain

In October 2002 we purchased a holiday flat in Guardamar on Spain's Costa Blanca - not far from Alicante and Torrevieja and we try to spend a good part of the year in Spain.

This blog hopefully will contain our thoughts and impressions of Spain - the good and the bad and lots and lots of photographs of not only Guardamar but the rest of Spain as we eventually get to explore it.

Spanish TV

May 6th is big day for Spanish TV - 9 channels will be withdrawn because the broadcasters have had their DTT licences withdrawn.

It would appear that the courts have ruled that these licences should have been put out for general tender but were not and therefore the current licence is withdrawn.

Included in the list of channels is Nitro and LaSexta3. This is a great pity as these channels showed films in the original language which is usually English.

Possibly in the future a further 8 channels are rumoured to be withdrawn. No doubt some other companies will apply for licences and perhaps we'll see more channels again.
