Compañía Peruana de Radiodifusión S.A., also known as América Televisión or América and stylized as américa, is a Peruvian television network created on December 15, 1958 by Antonio Umbert, Nicanor Gonzalez and Avelino Aramburú.

Its creation was made possible by the agreement with NBC and its parent company, the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) and the construction of its headquarters on Calle Montero Rosas, in Santa Beatriz.

The channel is known for its famous icon, a globe of parallels and meridians that is inspired by the logo of its radial counterpart used between 1957 and 1970.

It had links for more than four decades with Radio América, which remained until the radio station closed in 2004.

It is the second oldest Peruvian channel after TV Perú and Panamericana Televisión and the first commercial channel in Peru to appear.

Since 2003 it belongs to Grupo Plural TV, a company formed by an alliance between Grupo El Comercio and Grupo La República Publicaciones.

Then in 1964, the channel adopts the denomination of Canal Cuatro and the logo of that period was a number 4 formed by quadrilaterals, within the aforementioned number, a white screen with a black border and behind the 4, the word TV.

In 1969 and in full military dictatorship of Juan Velasco Alvarado, the channel changed its name to "C4 Televisión", although the corporate name was still that of Canal 4. The logo of that era was the letters C4 joined by thick lines and curves and below and to the left, the word TELEVISION. When the channel was renamed América, in an Ident, this logo appeared above the then new name of the channel, but without the word TELEVISION.

In December 1977, the channel adopts the definitive name of "América Televisión". The reason behind the change was to be totally different from its still existing radial variant. The logo of that era was a stylized television screen from the 70s in black, above, the word américa in white Venus Black typography, below, the word televisión in Helvetica Light typography also white and above the ó of the second word appeared an already very familiar version of a globe, this one at that time had three parallels and eight meridians, also of white color and used to turn to the left instead of to the right in the idents.

The logo was created by Brazilian cartoonist Mauro Borja Lopes, inspired by the second logo of the Rede Globo, which had a similar shape.

Borja Lopes continued to work as a graphic designer within América until 2001 due to administrative pressures in the channel by the resignation of José Francisco Crousillat, owner of the channel at the time.

In November 1990, the name above the globe first appears as América instead of América Televisión. The reason behind the shortening of the name was that many people were already beginning to refer to the channel as América rather than the full name due to the simplification of visual language.

The word televisión appears separate from the globe, being used as a separate element. In addition, as the channel was implemented to the satellite signal, a word Satélite in manuscript with a black line that crosses the globe. Inside the spots, the globe was yellow and the text was yellow. In this version, the balloon's rotation movement returns after leaving that rotation in the 1980s.

On June 24, 1994, with the arrival of the Crousillat family in the channel, the previous logo was re-opened from scratch, now in 3D and without any opening in the middle of the symbol

In addition, the name américa appears in white pasted above the balloon instead of opening in two to the logo and underneath, the word Televisión in black.

This and the 2002 logo will be the last logos to carry the word Televisión on the logo before the arrival of Plural TV in the administrative ark of the channel.

In the era of the creditors' board, an interim logo was used in which the text américa is combined with the globe, and the separations of the squares disappear.

In print ads the text américa televisión was used under the globe and on television, both words were separated by the globe, in white and placed on a black marquee with transparent ends.

This logo was not created by the original creator of the iconic symbol, Mauro Borja Lopes, and this will be the last logo to carry the word Televisión in the logo.

Between October and November 2003, the new management led by Plural TV (a company created through an alliance between the Grupo El Comercio and the Grupo La República) announced a radical change in the channel logo through advertising spots under the slogan "Siempre en tu vida". Finally, on November 16 of that year, the new logo was launched, a new globe formed by lines for the first time since 1982, which puts an end to the use of realistic globes used in the 80s and 90s, in white and above an orange square (which will be its main corporate color hencenwards) in a form similar to that of an iOS app icon and the first versions of Android (which will not were officially launched until 2007 and 2008 respectively).

The square with the globe is combined with a dark blue rectangle with the same appearance as the square and containing the text américa, which changes the Helvetica typography of the 80s and 90s to ITC Officina Sans. This logo from then on definitively removes the word Televisión from the logo due to the simplification of language at the beginning of the 21st century. This logo, like the following, was created by Zetta Comunicadores del Perú, an internal graphic design agency of the Grupo El Comercio.
