The channel ceased broadcasting on 5 May 2014 in DTT, as a consequence of a sentence by the Supreme Court that annulled the concessions for nine channels broadcasting in DTT, because their permissions for frequencies were granted without the required public consensus and assignments system according to the Audiovisual Law.[4][5][6]

Since 6 May 2014 the channel broadcast only online via Atresplayer.[7]
