Unitymedia (then Unity Media) was formed in 2005 by merger of German cable companies Ish and Iesy, while their consumer brand was kept until 2007.
In 2007, Unity Media began to referrer itself as Unitymedia. Ish, Iesy and some of Tele Colombus operations were finally replaced by this brand.
In 2012, Unitymedia changed its logo to UPC's bloom in gradient of colors. This rebrand was reflecting Liberty Global ownership, which acquired the company in 2010. On February 1, 2020, the brand was discontinued in favor of Vodafone.
Unitymedia Kabel BW
This corporate logo was unveiled in 2012 as Unitymedia and now-defunct Kabel BW were merged into Unitymedia Kabel BW. However, in 2015, the company name was reverted to Unitymedia and Kabel BW name in Baden-Württemberg was dissolved in favor of Unitymedia.
