That has been the decision adopted by RTVE, announced this Wednesday by the agency's administrator, Rosa María Mateo.

In this new stage, most of the new programming will be broadcasted through La 2, and its objective is to combine both Catalan and Spanish languages in public television as it happens in the street.

This position contrasts with that adopted by the Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals, which includes channels such as TV3 and broadcasters such as Catalunya Radio and which has always excluded the Spanish language in its media offer, with Catalan as the only allowed language.

Advance or reverse?

Although there are those who see this movement as another cession of Pedro Sanchez's executive to nationalism and a setback in Spanish broadcasts, it can also be understood as a non-ideological alternative to TV3 broadcasts, (which currently has an evident ideological position) which would offer an alternative with audiovisual content in Catalan without secessionist messages, something that is almost unprecedented at the present time. On the other hand, RTVE offering that alternative to TV3 could also be understood as a confirmation that it is impossible to depoliticize Catalan public television, at least in the short term.
