laSexta began broadcasting in 2006 and became part of Atresmedia TV following a merger in 2012. Its television model, characterized by innovative, creative and committed programming, has continued to develop since then.
Its programming is particularly based on more intimate, quality information with an emphasis on the concerns of society and current affairs. Along with laSexta Noticias, the channel includes news programmes such as Al rojo vivo, Más Vale Tarde, laSexta Noche, El Objetivo and laSexta Columna, together with special report programmes such as Salvados, Scoop and Equipo de investigación. In recent years, laSexta has become the leader in live news programmes by following the main current events, both in Spain and abroad.
laSexta completes its range of content with entertainment programmes such as El Intermedio, Pesadilla en la cocina, Liarla Pardo, Zapeando, Arusitys and ¿Dónde estabas entonces?
As part of its social commitment, the channel produces initiatives such as Constantes y Vitales to promote scientific research and medical outreach, and supports Crea Cultura for the defense of cultural creation with the programme Crea Lectura.
