TelevisiÃ³ de Catalunya is the public broadcasting network of Catalonia, one of the seventeen autonomous communities of Spain.
It is part of the CorporaciÃ³ Catalana de RÃ dio i TelevisiÃ³, a public corporation created by the Generalitat de Catalunya by a Founding Act in 1983. Slightly more than half of its revenue comes from public funding through the Generalitat de Catalunya, while the remaining 48% is raised through advertising, sponsorship and merchandise and original productions' sales. It is officially composed by six channels: TV3, TV3 HD, 33/Super3, 3/24, Esport 3 and TV3CAT.
While the main language of all these channels is Catalan, Spanish is usually neither sub-titled nor dubbed, as it is generally accepted that all Catalan speakers are by default also Spanish speakers. Some programmes such as PolÃ²nia and APM use Spanish extensively, largely for effect. In the Aran Valley, there are programs in Aranese.
TVC headquarters are located in Sant Joan DespÃ, near Barcelona.
