1st Logo (2019-2021)

Visuals: On a black background, there is a diagonal turquoise blue strip drawing itself in towards the bottom-right, and another shorter strip of the same color being drawn in towards the top-right, merging with the first strip to form an abstract "V". After this, the word "VIACOM" in its 2006 font in white appears letter-by-letter below the "V", and the words "INTERNATIONAL STUDIOS" in white appear below it, with "STUDIOS" being bolder than "INTERNATIONAL". Three spotlights then appear, and the text and spotlights disappear and the strips draw themselves out.

Variants:

  • Sometimes, a copyright stamp appears below the logo.
  • Due to the remerger of Viacom and CBS in 2019, the logo sometimes appears without the "VIACOM" text.
  • A still variant on a shaded white background with the text "DISTRIBUIDO POR:" (translated to "distributed by" in Spanish) appearing above the logo exists.
  • An alternate variant also exists, where the background strips are gray and more transparent.
  • At the end, the logo wipes to the Nick Jr., MTV, Paramount Network or Comedy Central logos.
  • Sometimes, the background is blue and the "V" is white.
  • On the Nickelodeon shows, the background is purple.
  • On the Comedy Central shows, the "V" is yellow and transitions to the Comedy Central Original logo.
  • On Atrapa a un ladrón, the text "PRESENTA" is seen at the bottom.
  • On Jane MacDonald: Cruising the Med, this logo shares the screen with the 2020 Channel 5 logo.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: A fast-paced, four-note piano tune that plays while the "V" forms, alongside what sounds like a heartbeat.

2nd Logo (2021-)

Various beams that appear to be made of glass pass over the screen, revealing more white bars, eventually revealing the letters "VIS" (with the "V" being the similar to the one in the previous logo, but without the beveled corners). The glass beams slide off-screen, as the letters settle in the middle of the screen. The byline fades in below.
