The application offers four channels belonging to the group: La 1, La 2, TDP (sports) and the Canal 24 horas and all channels will live broadcast this historic event of such importance for our country.

This pioneering initiative with RTVE hails the start of a new way of communicating and consuming media. Wearable technology is the next wave in the adoption of everyday technology that surrounds us and thanks to that we can now enjoy the classic medium through the most innovative device.

RTVE has become the first multi device media broadcaster. Now it’s a reality to be able to view television through any device and reach any audience in any place.

Thanks to TVE hedging their technological bets and placing their faith in Droiders to produce this application, we have reached a technological milestone. As a first for the media industry we are able to offer multi device content: from traditional television, to computer, to smartphone, to tablets and now on Google Glass.

Wearable technology is upon us producing a revolutionary effect in society by manifesting itself in our daily lives. The smartglasses from Google are just a first step.

You could be on a train or a plane journey, pop on your Glass and watch from any of the TVE channels: La 1, La 2, TDP and Canal 24 horas at any time of the day.

It’s very easy to use: you only have to load up the application, select the channel you want to view and click play. Simple as pie.

Manolo El del Bombo #throughglass

Everyone in Spain knows Manolo el del bombo. But when you are 6,000kms from the motherland and everyone is trying to snatch a picture with the Spanish Football team most famous fan, that’s when you truly realise the pull this fellow really has.




Manuel Cáceres Artesero, better known as “Manolo el del bombo”, has spent some 40 years drumming up support for the national team as he himself admits. In that time he has become known as the most familar face of the national team and recent success of the team has catapulted his popularity.

We were witness #throughglass to the #LetsGoFootball fever that he generates, in this case, in Washington DC this week.

ps. There’s a fine piece, albeit a few years old, in more detail about Manolo el del Bombo in Sid Lowe’s report in The Guardian.

Washington supports La Roja

Ahead of the squad’s game against El Salvador, we had the opportunity to savour the atmosphere among visting RFK stadium USA fans of the Spanish Team in Washington DC during the training session.




There were long queues and lots of expectation in the air around the stadium. The youngest supporters stood out among the fans as the most excitable had queued from early on to catch a glimpse of their idols.

These american children, of spanish parents, have a passion and a love of colour worthy of any national supporter. La Roja has transcended borders and everyone wants to be part of the success of our team.

We took the opportunity to have chat with them and ask for their support to the Spanish squad #throughglass #LetsGoFootball.
