TV Licence doesn't exist in Spain (since the years 1970). It is paid by adverts (one said that it is the reason why advertisments last 15 minutes...).
Adverts are very frequents: during the news, there is an advert for the sport section, in the Spanish TV series actors are promoting products just before the film (it's deceitful as there is only a word at the top of the screen that displays telepromocion when they talk about the product, and not during all the advert).
The standards for television reception in Spain aren't the same as in some other countries. Due to the differences in transmission standards, television sets and video recorders operating on the British (PAL-I), French (SECAM) or North American (NTSC) systems won't function in Spain. Spain (along with most other continental European countries) uses the PAL-BG standard.
In addition to terrestrial TV, satellite TV reception is excellent in most areas of Spain and is particularly popular among the expatriate community (not that much of it's output is any better than Spanish TV). Cable TV isn't common in Spain compared with northern European countries, although it is increasing and people expect to have about 5 millions of subscribers soon.
A satellite receiver should have a built-in Videocrypt decoder (and others such as Eurocrypt, if required) and be capable of receiving satellite stereo radio. With a 1.2 or 1.5 meter motorized dish, you can receive hundreds of stations in a multitude of languages from around the world. If you wish to receive satellite TV on two or more TVs, you can buy a satellite system with two or more receptors. To receive stations from two or more satellites simultaneously, you need a motorized dish or a dish with a double feed antenna (dual LNBs).
