Designer:  Larrea Diseñadores
Typography:  None

With the frequency change from 9 to 11, the logo is a TV screen that encloses the number 11. This logo was also used in the "Universidad de Chile Televisión" era. This logo was designed by Vicente Larrea at Larrea Diseñadores[1], and it was heavily inspired by the Santa María towers (then planned as twin towers, only one was completed in 1980, while the second one was completed in 2014), considered symbols of the economic development of Chile.

Since the change of management in 1993, the logo is composed by its acronym CHV of golden color. These letters are united by a typographic ligature, which began from the bottom of the letter C, which extended through the center of the letter H and began to start the letter V in its upper left. Under it the motto "Chilevisión" in gold letters, capital letters and thick, with the big V and the rest small.

The channel logo is changed, the blue sphere is changed by a red circle (in some cases a sphere) with the inscription CHV in white Helvetica typeface.



On 2004 the texture of the logo was changed: from opaque to a subtle gloss. The previous logo was still used as the on-screen bug.

A revised version of the glossy variant was launched in 2005, along with the campaign "CHV con todo", becoming the first logo after Claxson sold the channel to Bancard.


Designer:  Unknown
Typography:  Helvetica

Then, in 2006, a new version of the logo was introduced, now as a sphere (the 2004-2006 versions were depicted as rounded discs). The logo originally appeared in 2005 for the campaign "CHV con todo", where the celebrities of the channel appeared in various places filled with spherical versions of the CHV logo[2]. This was the longest-used variant of the original 2002 logo.


Chilevisión 2015.svg
Designer:  Feels
Typography:  Myriad

Keeping the color and slogan from the previous logo, the new logo has the initials CHV in Myriad typeface inside two red crescents simulating a circle. That is the first logo of Chilevisión under the management of Turner Broadcasting System (currently folded into WarnerMedia), who took control of the channel in 2010. The new logo debuted on January 1, 2015 at midnight, and the advertising graphics debuted later on the same day. This logo was designed by Chilean agency Feels.

Typography:  Neutraface
Also known as:  The Emoji

This is the second logo under Turner management. In this logo the letters CHV are stylized as a face. This logo was designed in-house in Turner's own agency, InJaus. On 5 April 2021, it was announced that ViacomCBS had reached an agreement to acquire Chilevisión from WarnerMedia Latin America. The acquisition process was approved by the Chilean Fiscalía Nacional Económica (FNE) on July 5th that year[3]; approval still pending from the Consejo Nacional de Televisión and from the USA.
