Canal 24 Horas (Spanish pronunciation: [bejntiˈkwatɾo ˈoɾas], Channel 24 Hours) is a Spanish free-to-air television channel owned and operated by Televisión Española (TVE), the television division of state-owned public broadcaster Radiotelevisión Española (RTVE). It is the corporation’s all-news television channel, and is known for its 24-hour rolling news service and its live coverage of breaking news.

It was launched on 15 September 1997 as the first 24-hour rolling television news service in Spain. It was the only one until 27 January 1999, when CNN+ started broadcasting. When CNN+ ceased transmissions on 28 December 2010, Canal 24 Horas became the only nationwide rolling television news service.

Its rolling news service is produced by TVE’s news services at its Torrespaña facilities, at the foot of the communications tower. News items are produced, with the footage taken by their own cameramen, by the central newsroom in Torrespaña, by the newsrooms of TVE territorial centers across Spain, by TVE foreign correspondents around the world or by on-the-scene special reporters. They also produce the flagship Telediario news bulletins and factual programmes, such as Informe Semanal, for La 1, La 2 and TVE Internacional that are also broadcast on Canal 24 Horas. The channel simulcasts of Telediario news bulletins provides sign language interpretation.
