Mega (Legal name: Red Televisiva Megavisión S.A.) is a Chilean private television network headquartered in Santiago de Chile. In 2012, ownership of Mega was transferred from Claro Group to Holding Bethia, with Discovery, Inc. acquiring 27,5% in 2016, both owning the channel through Mega Media.
The first official logo of the channel consisted of three diagonal stripes of red, light green and light blue, on a rounded black rectangle simulating a television screen. The diagonal red and celestial were normal and the green diagonal was stylized in ray form, giving form to the letters united MV, acronym of Megavisión. Under it the word mark Megavision, occasionally red, with a mix of types: The letter e of Century Gothic typography. The letters g and a of typography SF Orson Casual Light. The letter s Bauhaus Thin typography. The letters M and V identical to the Avant Garde typography and the other letters in Century Gothic typography.
This second corporate image consisted of the simple diagonal stripes of red, green and blue colors, but this time enclosed in a rounded rectangle bordered by gray simulating a television screen. Under it the word mark Megavision with the same typographies of the previous logo.
From 1993 to December 1998 the screen is eliminated, leaving only the stripes and the word mark. During the time the Viña Festival was broadcast between 1994 and 1999, the logo consisted of a blue circle that in the middle of it the mega motto of Helvetica-Compressed typography, and under it the three fringes.
During 1999-2001, the text "Megavision" changed to a different font and became italic.
The new corporate image, that would last a few months, consisted of 3 parallelograms of red, green and blue, and under it the new motto 'MEGA' of gray color, being the letter M similarly square and the letter A without horizontal bar, similar to the Greek letter capital Λ .
In December 2001 the logo is redesigned, moving the parallelograms to the letter A and shrinking. This logo was used from 2001 to 2006 as the official logo, and until 2010 it was used as the on-screen logo.
In 2006, 3 green semi-transparent rounded rectangles are added and the MEGA word becomes white. Used as the official logo from 2006 to 2010 (although the previous logo was still used as the on-screen logo).
The fourth corporate image shows the syllables ME and GA in multicolored style. This logo was designed by chilean agency Hambre.
In September 23 of 2013, the fifth corporate image of the channel consists of a rounded violet square, within it the syllables ME and GA. The motto shows a similarity to the 2001 logo with a letter G of two arrows that spin in a circle and the A ("Λ") without the horizontal bar. In addition its structure maintains the design of its predecessor.
In November 2015 the sixth and current image of the channel consists of two diagonals or reverse bars from left to right with a third opposite to them and cut in half forming an M, structurally formed in a slightly thick purple border. Below it, the Mega motto of the same color and in another typography and sometimes, is enclosed in a purple square with the white logo. The logo was designed by Chilean agency Dittborn & Unzueta, with the first batch of idents produced by Argentina-based agency Plenty.
