AMV-4 Albury-Wodonga began transmission on 7 September 1964. Translators would be later set up at Khancoban NSW on VHF-7, Myrtleford on VHF-9, Corryong and Mt. Beauty on VHF-10 and Bright on VHF-11. The callsign stood for Albury Murray Victoria.
Facing financial difficulties, both RVN-2 Wagga-Wagga and AMV-4 Albury-Wodonga merged to form The Riverina and North East Victoria Television Service in 1971. The station would be known on-air as RVN-AMV. Programming for both stations would remain seperate until 1976 when transmission would be centralised in Wagga-Wagga.
The Prime Network RVN-AMV
In October 1987, Midstate Television was bought out by Ramcorp Ltd. It was soon merged with its other stations RVN/AMV and NEN/ECN.
In May 1988, Midstate Television was renamed Prime Television. Due to transmission problems following the 1989 aggregation, RVN/AMV de-merged and RVN became CBN-2 and expanded into Southern NSW while AMV-4 expanded into the rest of Victoria in March 1992 with new channels at Ballarat (UHF-33), Bendigo (UHF-32), Goulburn Valley (UHF-43), Latrobe Valley (UHF-46), Murray River Valley (UHF-47), and Western Victoria (UHF-34). In 1991, RVN's callsign ceased to exist when the Wagga and Orange licences merge to become CBN while AMV moved to VHF-11 in order to allow FM stations to broadcast without interference.
