CHV, also known as Chilevisión, is the third oldest television station in Chile. Formerly called Teleonce (Universidad de Chile Televisión) and RTU (Red de Televisión de la Universidad de Chile), this TV station was owned by University of Chile, a Chilean state university. This educational institution sold a significant percentage of its TV channel to Venevisión, changing its name to Chilevisión. It was later sold to Claxson Multimedia Group and then to Chilean investor and president Sebastián Piñera.

On August 28, 2010, it was announced that Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., a TimeWarner company had reached an agreement to purchase it. This assets do not include the analog television channel frequency which is still owned by Universidad de Chile and is used under a paid usufruct scheme, similar to a lease. This contract expires in 2018 and only affects the analog frequencies used by the station. On October 6, 2010 the purchase was materialized.[1]
