Kiss TV is an upcoming DTT network operated by Kiss Media and almost entirely fed by Discovery Networks' content, becoming a second free-to-air (FTA) distribution channel for the US-based company in Spain.

Both companies have announced an extensive content deal prior to launch of Kiss TV, one of the country's six new DTT signals, which have to be live before the end of April.

Under the terms of the agreement, Discovery Networks International will be the main content provider for the 24-hour channel, which gains access to some premium titles as well as Discovery's vast catalogue of documentaries and factual shows.

However, the Spanish media group has stated that there will be room for in-house content and Spanish fiction.

For the US-based company, the agreement also signals an important step forward into Spain's FTA TV, through which it has been airing Discovery MAX since 2012. In addition, several pay-TV platforms include Discovery Channel, Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 in their schedules.

In addition to Kiss TV, April will see the premiere of Secuoya's Ten channel, Real Madrid TV and 13TV, and Mediaset's new channels. Atresmedia's Atreseries is the only recently-awarded signal currently on air.
