This iteration of the logo was only used for the first set of Smart Cards manufactured for the service, as it was dropped before Canal Satélite Digital had even launched. It resembles more its french counterpart at the time, Canal Satellite Numerique.



By the end of January, 1997, Canal Satelite replaced all of its analogue transmitions, and begun only broadcasting in digital, giving birth to Canal Satélite Digital, in addition to amplifiing its offer to include more thematic channels in following years.

Despite some financial difficulties and a not very high subscriber count, Canal Satélite Digital was overall a success, especially when compared to its contemporary rival, Vía Digital, which performed significantly worse, ultimately merging with Canal Satélite Digital in 2002, in an atempt to cut losses from both sides.

In 2003, Prisa TV launched Digital+, a new platform from the merger of Canal Satélite Digital and Vía Digital.
