Canal Sur

Canal Sur ("South Channel") is part of Radio y Televisión de Andalucía (RTVA), the public broadcasting company of Andalusia. It was created by means of the devolved powers given to this region by Act of Parliament by its statute of autonomy.

Canal Sur consists of two television channels, Canal Sur TV and Canal Sur 2, a public radio network, Canal Sur Radio and Canal Fiesta Radio.

On 28 February 1989 Canal Sur 1 TV was launched as the public broadcaster of the Autonomous Community of Andalucía. However, this means that it was funded by the regional government of Andalucía. The Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) have always been in power in the region since Spain enjoys democracy. As they control the Andalusian Autonomous Government (Junta de Andalucía) many people have accused the regional government of transforming the channel into the mouthpiece of their party.

Canal Sur's news broadcasts often express views critical of the current Prime Minister of Spain, Mariano Rajoy, and his party, the People's Party (PP).
