It’s called Hispan TV; and it is the first ever Spanish language television network in the Middle East, broadcasting from Iran. Hispan TV went on air Wednesday, December 21, with 16-hour programming for the Spanish speaking nations in Latin America, Europe and the rest of the world.
During the inauguration ceremony, the network’s managers told Press Tv that the primary goal of Hispan TV is to provide an alternative platform of multimedia service to the Spanish speaking nations: an opportunity for cultural exchange with Iran through television and web broadcasts. They also rejected the claims that Iran would use the channel to find a back yard in Latin America.
