In 1996, the tricolor logo for yellow, blue and red with a grey fill gradient was introduced.
In 1997, as part of a refresh, the 1996 logo was tweaked. Before the 1998 update, this logo was used after the 1996-1997 logo.
The gray gradient was discontinued in 1998 leaving the only symbol just like the previous logos.

By 2005, the 1996 logo was returned. RCTV ceased operations on May 28, 2007 as an over-the-air network when Venezuela's leftist Hugo Chávez regime, which the privately-owned network opposed, forced its shutdown and seized its equipment and infrastructure for the use of state-run network TVes. RCTV has since continued as a cable/satellite network under the name RCTV Internacional until 2010.
In July 2020, the brand returned as a online OTT service.
