Why didn't Spain get Dragon Ball Kai?

The Spanish (Castillan) part of Spain, that is. Catalunya and Galicia had their own Kai dubs but the main part of Spain.. nope. Any reason why?

We don't know. A Castilian Spanish dub was announced to be in production and then...nothing. It seems to have suffered the fate of the Ocean dub of Kai.
A "rather haggard" translation of a line from Future Gohan in DBZ, provided to FUNimation by Toei:
"To think of fighting that is this fun...so, it was pleasant fight, as many as, therefore is a feeling which is good the fight where."

Not even that. We know Ocean Kai covered all 98 episodes of Kai 1.0 . Is there any evidence the Castellan Spanish dub even got as far as the arrival of Vegeta and Nappa on Earth, let alone a complete dub of Ep 1?

I was told that Selecta Vision would be releasing the Castillan dub of Dragon Ball Kai but I've never seen any proof neither has SV confirmed or denied it (I asked via Twitter and they'd answer a good number of times to other inquiries). This was probably around 2013 (if I remember correctly) when I read about it from a guy in Spain.

Selecta Visión has released just about every Dragon Ball series except Kai.

Could it be because Kai is just Z with less filler?
