Hispan TV is an Iranian 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 claims to provide "accurate and unbiased coverage of the world and the Middle East events as they unfold."
Hispan TV has foreign journalists from Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Nicaragua, Russia, Spain, and Venezuela. It also has journalists from Iran who speak Spanish.
