Telenorte, originally launched as TVUN Red del Norte, was a Chilean television channel, which had stations in the cities of Arica, Antofagasta, Iquique and La Serena. The channel would start broadcasting in 1973 after experimental broadcasting. In 2001, the channel would finally close due economical crisis. A plan was made by F2 Producciones (the actual "owner" of Telenorte) to revive the channel during 2011, but it never came to fruition. The channel was finally revived in 2019, starting as an online channel.

1st Logo (1982-1995)

Visuals: On a dark blue background, some neon blue rings appear moving to the center of the screen, spinning. Then the rings disappear leaving the logo of the Universidad Catolica del Norte, and it becomes metallic. On the upper side the circle "explodes" in many needles, and the lower part of the circle shrinks and expands in the other side, forming a sun silhouette. The other parts of the logo (the screen, the words) appear later.


  • On a evening footage of the sea is the same logo (but with a slightly different look) flying to the screen. After the announcer said his words, the logo flies out the screen.
  • On a blue geometrical background (somewhat similar the UCTV ID from 1990) appear the Telenorte logo moving to the screen. The screen moves a bit to the logo.
  • A more complex variant consist in a sky background. A blue TV screen is moving towards the screen while flipping, and once it stops moving, the white sun silhouette expands a the word "TELENORTE" appear letter by letter. The logo deforms, and a yellow shape (with the form of part of the Chilean north territory) appear moving out of the screen. The stations (represented by blue and red shapes and the cities names) appear in this shape. Finally, after the map is out of the screen, the same animation of the Telenorte logo from the beginning is presented.
