‘OT’ turns 20
In October 2001, Spanish Television premiered ‘Operación Triunfo’, a talent show that became an unprecedented phenomenon on the music scene and it changed the history of television in this country, becoming the program of this genre with the highest audience up to that moment.
Sixteen years after its premiere, in 2017, the musical contest that launched established artists such as David Bisbal, Pink, Chenoa, David Bustamante, Manu Carrasco or Pablo López returned to the television grid with a revolutionary digital strategy: for the first time in history in a TV, in parallel to the galas and the daily summaries, a 24-hour channel was created from the Academy in Youtube.
The YouTube Channel of ‘Operación Triunfo’ reached one million subscribers before turning three years old and has videos that exceed 20 million views. Throughout the last three editions (2017, 2018 and 2020) the program has been a benchmark in digital terms both for its great reach among younger audiences, as well as for the creation of transmedia content and for the management of its huge community followers.
