Spain's Kiss Media is reviving Quiero TV, not as a pay-TV platform, but as a DTT free-to-air (FTA) network.

The media group was recently awarded with one of the new DTT licences in Spain, through which it intends to launch a general TV network targeting people between 20-40 with documentaries, series and films. According to details published by Bluper, the channel will also start airing two new formats.

The DTT signal, which will be launched during the first quarter of 2016, will be headed by Javier Pons, former director of Spanish public network, RTVE.

Quiero TV is a well known to the Spanish audience, as it was the first pay-TV platform to launch over the DTT network in 2000. However, it closed down two years later with less than 200,000 subs.

The Kiss Media channel is the fourth proposal coming out of the six recently-awarded DTT licences. Atresmedia is to introduce a series-themed network similar to Atres Series in Latin America and the US; Secuoya is getting ready to launch D10 in March 2016; and although Real Madrid TV hasn't confirmed its plans, it is expected to launch a 24/7 channel about the football team.

Mediaset and 13TV, the other two groups awarded licences  by the Ministry of Industry, haven't yet revealed their plans.
