France Télévision was formed in 1992 as a joint-entity to manage then-struggling French public television channels Antenne 2 and FR3, while they renamed France 2 and France 3, respectively. The initial logo has consisted of chopped red-2 & blue-3 surrounding France Télévision text.
In August 2000, France Télévisions S.A. was formed as a holding company for France's public television channels, absorbing control of France 2, France 3, and fellow public channel La Cinquième (later renamed France 5).
On 7 January 2002, a new look with new logos for the group and all its channels was introduced. At the same time, a plural-s was added to the name which became France Télévisions. At the same time La Cinquème changed its name to France 5, in line with its two big sisters.
The new look heavily features "screens" flying through the air. The new corporate logo consists of four blue screens with the new company name written underneath in all lowercase. The channel logos were also screens seen at an angle.
On 7 April 2008, France Télévisions introduced a company-wide image refresh, which included an updated logo and the addition of gradients to the logos of each channel. The company logo was refreshed by adding a fifth "screen" and adding colours to the screens according to the logos of five of the group's main channels.
Starting on 5 September 2011, France Télévisions replaced the five screens on their corporate logo with the logos of the 6 channels operated by the company.
In 2012, the screens were removed, leaving only the wordmark. As of 2018, this logo becomes a corporate and secondary logo used along with the present logo.
On 29 January 2018, France Télévisions introduced an overhaul for all services since 2002 and was designed by Paris-based agency Movement.
This common visual identity system had been revealed over the time since the launch of Franceinfo in 2016 and France.tv in 2017, respectively with France.tv logo being modified for a current corporate logo.
