Chilevisión is the third oldest television station in Chile. Formerly called Canal 9 de Televisión de la Universidad de Chile, Teleonce (Universidad de Chile Televisión) and RTU (Red de Televisión de la Universidad de Chile), this TV station was owned by Universidad de 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 ex-president Sebastián Piñera.

On August 28, 2010, it was announced that Turner Broadcasting System 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.[2]

In 2012, Chilevisión has been the focus of a controversy over journalistic ethics. On January 16, 2012 aired an interview that the interviewee appeared, Inés Perez,[3] as a deeply class. The interview produced strong reactions, even leading to the creation of social networking groups against the affected woman. Two days later it knew the full interview, and the reactions were returned against the broadcaster, because it expressed concern Pérez discriminated assumptions and puts everything in context. In response, the broadcaster defended the veracity of the interview and dismissed the officer who leaked the full video, causing even more adverse reactions among viewers.
