Watch Spanish TV online free

More and more people around the world are switching to streaming platforms to consume their favorite movies and TV series.

However, when it comes to watching the news, they go back to traditional TV channels.

The difference is that since nowadays fewer people own a TV (especially the youngest), they end up watching the official live stream on YouTube.

So this is how thousands of native Spanish speakers watch TV every day!

Spanish TV news channels on YouTube

The standardized search formula consists of three simple steps!

First, go to YouTube and search tv country en vivo. Where it says country, you should write the one you are interested in. For example: tv argentina en vivo.

Then, click the search button.

Finally, go to filters and choose en vivo (‘live’ in English) and that’s it! The first results will be from the country you are looking for.

Mainly national public broadcasters are the ones that transmit live on YouTube and they are usually TV news channels.

But that doesn’t mean they only broadcast TV news shows!

You would need to research more about the programming of that channel in particular.

The most popular TV channel in Argentina on YouTube is TN (Todo Noticias). At the time of writing this article, over 30.000 people are following the official live stream.

But in my opinion, what’s really interesting is the chance to watch channels from other provinces or states far from the main cities.

You will get a good sense of local news!

For example, you can watch RTVE, the state-owned Spanish public corporation, but also this random channel from the province of Andalucía.

This is particularly useful to challenge yourself and try to understand accents from everywhere, not only the standard ones.

Go explore and have fun with them.

And that’s all for today!
