Canal 13 (commonly shortened as el 13) is a Chilean free-to-air television channel, the second oldest of the country, first broadcasting in channel 2 until 1961, when it moved to the channel 13. It was created and fully owned by Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC) until 2010, when Grupo Luksic (through Inversiones TV Medios Ltda.) acquired 67% of the property, and then in 2017 bought the remaining from UC.

During its first years (when the channel was in experimental broadcasting), the channel didn't have a proper logo. It was just referred as Canal 2 instead, and adopted a logo two years later when it moved to the channel 13.

The first official logo of the station consisted of a large-shaped 13 with "TV" under the number, each one inside blue rectangles (the color was present in ads and stationery,[1] since it broadcasted in black and white at the time). Since then, the name Canal 13 became a common nickname for the channel.

Its second logo introduced in mid-1969, consisted of the black number "13" above the outlined letters "tv", in which the white letters are joined. It didn't last long this logo, although the previous one was still in use.

For 29 years,[2] the logo had a thin curve with a T that reaches the V, and the center of number 13 (for 7 frequencies) in a typeface similar to Handel Gothic, it was introduced for the first time in March 1970. Ten months later, the phase "UNIVERSIDAD CATÓLICA DE CHILE" was ommited, leaving a simplified logo. People commonly give this logo the nickname La Tetera because of the shape that this one takes.

In 1973, the 13 is replaced officially by the letters UC, in reference to Universidad Católica de Chile. This is because other channels which weren't channel 13 such as in Channel 5 from Concepción and San Fernando began broadcasting, and each of the frequencies from Chilean cities put its own number instead of "UC" by its respective channel. When Color TV arrived to Chile in 1978, a variation was added where the logo was filled with test pattern-like color bars. This logo was used until 1999 with the following variations.

On June 1, 2000, it still got its elements with the previous logo (specifically the number 13 and the initials UC) switching places.

Although the channel was still referred as Canal 13, administration problems led to the usage of different names for intros and outros:

  • Corporación de Televisión de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, Canal 13: The full name of the channel, main name used in 2000.
  • Canal 13 de la Universidad Católica de Chile: a slightly abridged version of the full name, introduced in 2002.
  • Universidad Católica de Chile Televisión, Canal 13: a mixture between the old name and the newest introduced officially on 1999.

Although in October 2002 was introduced a tweaked version, this logo was continued on use for other purposes, relegated to be a secondary logo.

A revised design of the previous logo on October 20, 2002, with thicker lines which was introduced, and the sphere as the word "CANAL" matched the color of the rest of the symbol; commonly nicknamed as El Logo Virtual due to the graphics it used. Moreover, the name Canal 13 was put back in use for every purpose. However, the previous logo was still used in tandem with this one.
