December 1st, 1997-April 1st, 2006
Ketnet was launched in December 1st, 1997 along with Canvas. The launch identity was created by Lambie-Nairn (also designed the TV1 and Canvas' logos). The Ketnet name comes from "Ket" (child in Brussels local language), and "Net" (network in Dutch language).
April 1st, 2006-2010
At this time, Ketnet was split in three strands: K'tje (preschoolers), Ketnet (younger children) and NT van Ketnet (teenagers). This last one closed in 2008.
On May 24, 2010, Ketnet introduced a new identity. It was created by Red Bee Media. The on-screen presentation makes heavy use of drawings sent in by viewers.
The same logo, but the color changed. The "K" is yellow/gold and "Ketnet" text is blue. Between 2012 and 2014 (after its HD channel's closure) shared the same signal with Op 12. Currently shares the same signal with Eén+ and Canvas+.
In August 31, 2015, Ketnet launched a very different logo (designed by Eugene and Louise) and a new preschooler block replacing Kaatje: Ketnet Jr.. In 2017, the HD channel is relaunched.
