Canal 6 is the national television network owned by Telecorporación Salvadoreña since 1985. It is the oldest television network in El Salvador, alongside with channel 4. The station was founded on September 7, 1956 by Rubén González, Boris Eserski, Guillermo Pinto and Tono Alfaro as YSEB-TV. The station lasted ten years under Telecentro, S.A., and it returned as YSLA-TV on April 6, 1973 broadcasting in color and operated by Canal Seis, S.A. de C.V.
YSEB-TV (Canal 6)
The first logo was an vintage television screen showing branding signal "YSEB-TV" and two channels 6 and 8 inside of it with a Futura font. Canal 8 was moved to Educational Television of El Salvador in 1964, and Canal 6 was signed off two years later.
TV6 El Salvador
The 1973 logo was a painter man as its slogan "La Magia del Color", and the word TV6 with a Blue letters and a Red number six. Inside of the number, the words "El Salvador" marks the country's first television channel in Color.
By 1977, the logo was introduced as a hybrid name as "TV6" and "Canal 6" showing six horizontal color bars: Blue, Red, Purple, Green, Yellow and Gray. Between the halved letters "TV", there was a blue word "Canal" as a "Paragraph Stretch" font as an alternative name of the channel, and the number six had six color as the word TV is surrounded by the rounded blue square.
The 1986 logo was a 4:3 vintage television screen as a blue outline, and the number six was inside of the screen.
Mixolydian Titling Regular (1991-2003)
In 1991 was introduced the first version of its current logo; a pink vertical rounded rectangle with a transparent number 6 on the left.
The wordmark at the time was the "Mixolydian Titling Regular" font as TV SEIS was below the logo, with the letter "V" in italic. By 1995 logo, the wordmark was rewritten as CANAL SEIS in the upper left corner logo separately. The wordmarks were gone since 2003, when the slogan "CONÉCTATE" arrived one year earlier.
In 2006 the logo was notably modified, with the stroke on the "6" becoming slightly dense. WTVJ, an NBC key station in Miami–Fort Lauderdale, Florida, would currently use a similar "6" design six years after this logo was introduced.
The bottom and upper parts of the number became completely closed. It is shown with or without the slogan "CONÉCTATE", using the "Futura ND DemiBold Oblique" font. It's still used along with the 2017 logo.
September 21, 2017
By 2017, the outline color now matches the rest of the logo. Introduced on September 21 as an internet logo.
