Freesat also offers access to the Catchup services like BBC IPlayer and ITV Player. However, to use these services in Spain, you will require a subscription to a VPN or SmartDNS service that provides you with a UK Internet IP Address, making it look as if you are using the internet in the UK and not Spain. If you do not have one of these UK IP address services, then the content will be blocked as the services will see that you are trying to use them outside the UK.
