It was purple until the 2002 ITV1 rebrand, where UTV used its own logo there, made blue to match up with ITV1's logo.

UTV relaunched its presentation on January 1, 2010 by introducing a new set of scenery idents, as well as updating promotional presentation, which now features a 3D version of the 2000 logo.

UTV updated its idents on October 11, 2011, returning to rural scenes from across the province and featuring a new jingle. The presentation was updated slightly to incoroprate the station’s new slogan “Part of U”. This logo now has a gloss effect.

On 23 March 2016, UTV revealed their new logo which closely matches that of the 2013 rebrand of ITV. The logo change was part of a £100 million takeover of the network by ITV completed in February. The new logo was launched on air on 17 October of that year.
