Canal 4 debuted with a mailman who checks the primitive television. The TV screen showed as a hybrid name: The big letters were "TV" and the words "Canal 4" (Channel 4) below. Outside of the television, the logo showed the callsign on the top left position.

Canal 4 - El Salvador (1966)

Canal 4's iconic logo has showed essentially the same since 1966 using a simple as the number four inside of the eye, basing on the CBS logo it's symbolized as a vision of TV spectator. The early version of the iconic logo consists the Old Vintage TV Screen with a red color, although the logo was in black and white on screen before 1974.

In July 1969, the Canal 4's logo was revised, with a red shape changed to the rounded 4:3 square. As a result, the previous logo was gradually phased out in 1970. A major reason for this change was television screens evolved to be more quadrilateral on a screen. Also, the circle of the eye logo has been slightly reduced to accurate the eye concept and more similar to CBS logo inspiration, as the eye shape became rounded.
