Back in March four new stations on channel 48 appeared, all in test mode with a standard color-bar pattern. Then in May, 25 TV started broadcasting. In June the program information for UrBe TV, Canal Català TV and Localia Catalunya was being emitted, but still only with a color-bar pattern. Finally, in July these last three stations started broadcasting as well.

All four stations are “local” and much of their content is in català. Late at night all four broadcast sexually oriented content.

After a year there are still three stations that are in test on a channel run by grupoGodó, who is also the publisher of the newspaper La Vanguardia. My guess is that at some point some or all of the remaining analog stations will switch.
