HispanTV is now in Venezuela, Bolivia and Latin America
HispanTV (Spanish: [ispanˈteuβe, ihpanˈteuβe], Persian (patterned from Spanish pronunciation): [ispanˈteube, ispanˈteuve], Persian alphabet: هیسپانتیوی) is a Spanish language news channel operated by IRIB, Iran‘s state-owned public broadcasting corporation. It began broadcasting in December 2011.
HispanTV’s programming has been distributed in Venezuela, Spain, Argentina, Cuba and other countries worldwide and is intended to reinforce ties between Iran and Latin American states such as Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Nicaragua, and Mexico as well as to counter what the Iranian government sees as unfair coverage in Western media. The channel is similar to Press TV, an English language news channel and Al-Alam an Arabic satellite TV station also owned by the Iranian state, which claim to provide “accurate and unbiased coverage of the world and the Middle East events as they unfold.”
HispanTV has foreign journalists from Spain, Argentina, Mexico, USA, Chile, Nicaragua and Venezuela. It also has journalists from Iran who speak Spanish.
