(Whiteboard: [uaoverride] [country-es] [serversniff] [sitewait]) serves a desktop site to B2G. Bug 823364 added an UA override for this domain. The override should be removed once the domain serves mobile content to B2G. This bug tracks the evangelism for the site to recognize the B2G UA and the removal of the override at that time.

Tried to visit with Fx for Android and with Firefox on Firefox OS (Keon, Gaia 1.1). The first one displays a nice page, the second one displays an almost empty page with just a notice saying antena3 is on social networks and a set of social sharing buttons.

So it's just not a matter of avoiding the redirection, but to get the server to handle Firefox on Fx OS just like it does with Firefox for Android.

After wandering around, I discovered that is part of a group which has an institutional Web site with English content.

Sent a reminder and tried also through twitter. So far no answer.
Depends on: 974271
Ok so far, the twitter account is not responsive.
I also got no answers from the Communications service email address.

Let's see if we can find a better contact for this one.
Maybe this account. @danotrilogic

Another attempt.

This is antena 3, we have dissabled a couple of months ago, right now the only valid URL is
Hello David,

Thanks for chiming in. 
Oh I didn't realize that this morning when going through old bugs. Indeed. On all devices it serves the desktop site content.

If there are plans of doing a responsive site in the future, tell us and we will be glad to test on Firefox Android, and Firefox OS.

I'm closing it as INVALID as the issue doesn't make sense anymore. 
We need to remove the UA override too.

Yes, we will do a responsive site in the near future (and maybe a custom app for Firefox OS).
