Televisión Nacional de Chile (abbreviated as TVN) is a Chilean public service broadcaster, founded by Presidential order and launched nationwide in 1969. TVN is the only public owned television company in Chile and competes for audiences with other private broadcasting groups, such as Canal 13, Mega, Chilevisión and La Red, having a self-financing scheme. It is located on Channel 7 for Santiago, Channel 12 for Valparaíso and Channel 4 for Concepción.

1969–1984

1969–1978

The first logo of Televisión Nacional de Chile consisted of the word TV in italics (in which the letter N is implied to be read in the union between those letters) and above of the V, the word CHILE, also in italics and a typeface similar to Eurostile or Akzidenz Grotesk. These elements were bordered by a frame shaped in the outline of a bilinear television screen.

On screen, the logo was in black and white (according to the television sets at the time). However, in its first promotional forms, the logo was in color. The screen is the national tricolor and the "TV Chile" logo in black and red.[1] There's also a variant where the "T" is black and the "V" is gray, mainly used on documents.

1978–1984

After the arrival of color television in Chile in 1978, colors on the logo can be noticed: the letter T and the word CHILE were blue and the letter V was red. The logo was framed in a shape that simulates the tricolored outline of a television screen in blue, white and red. The colors used resemble the chilean flag.

In 1984, Televisión Nacional changed its logo to a ribbon-like colored letter N with a tricolor band of colors blue, white and red that doubling in parts form the letter N, referring to "Nacional". During 1985-1988, the word "TVN" (in a bold, outlined typeface) was added below the text, making it the first time that acronym was used. However, this acronym was only used as a secondary enhancement.

1988–1990

The 1978 logo was reused, but with a streamlined design and a different shade of blue, plus a different font for CHILE. It was used from 1987, along with the previous logo (the N logo), until January 1988 when this new logo took its place until 1990 both on screen and in print. During this time, TVN started using new, CGI graphics on the IDs, which depict the border rotating around the letters (the blue border rotated clockwise, while the red one rotated counterclockwise), replacing the old Scanimate and traditional techniques used before for the channel.

1990

Used from March to November 1990. To commemorate the return of democracy in 1990, TVN slightly changed its logo, replacing the tricolor border with a similarly-shaped, rainbow-colored border to reflect the emblem of the Concertación or the Concertacion de Partidos por la Democracia (Coalition of Parties for Democracy in English), a coalition of political parties that won the 1989 elections.

A new logo was launched in 1996, this time adding the N (which until then was hidden between the T and V), adopting the name TVN, which was first introduced in 1985 and later teased in 1995 with the campaign "TVN es más". This logo was designed by Chilean agency Procorp[2].

On October 1, 2020, Televisión Nacional de Chile changed its logo, dropping the box used since 2004, leaving only the letters of the channel's logo. The new visual identity was designed by Chilean agency Contenedor, and was visible that day since 7:00 AM (which is when the channel makes the start-up for its daily programming). New graphics were created as well, with white lines being the main element used in them.
