Galavision started on April 2, 1979, as a premium cable network, broadcasting a mix of classic and recent Mexican and other Spanish language films as well as Spanish-dubbed recent Hollywood productions.
By 1984, the network became a general entertainment basic cable channel offering a combination of Televisa programming and SIN re runs.
In the mid 1990s, Galavisión was led by Javier Saralegui and aired a mix of Spanish and English language programs like Kiki Desde Hollywood or "Funny is Funny". They also incorporated Miami produced variety entertainment show A Oscuras Pero Encendidos hosted by Paul Bouche. It complemented this strategy with Televisa produced programs that first aired on Univision, with entertainment and some news programs from Televisa's all news network ECO, including an Entertainment Tonight-style program anchored by Pita Ojeda and Ilia Calderón.
Since the year 2000, Galavisión aired a combination of classic comedy, telenovelas, and late night shows from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s that aired originally on Univision, with more present day offerings from news, sports and specials originating from Televisa's three networks, Canal de las Estrellas, FOROtv, and Galavisión as well as two shows produced by Televisa's music network, TeleHit.
On its most recent programming strategy Galavisión expanded original productions with shows like Acceso Maximo, En Casa Con Lucy, Delicioso (hosted by Ingrid Hoffmann), Vida Total, Decorando Contigo, Un Destino, Lo Mejor de Boxeo en Esta Esquina, the best of sister network Telefutura's Solo Boxeo series.
The Televisa produced programming is also crafted to fit strict broadcast standards.
Sports and News Programming
Galavision's coverage of soccer, produced by Televisa, is done with a secondary or "clean" feed in which any references to Televisa are not shown and Galavision supplants the feed with Univision's announcers and graphics. In the early days, Galavision would use the whole Televisa feed while covering any Televisa promotions or sponsor tags with a green generic Galavision border logo.
As for news programming, Galavision, while owned by Univision Networks, has no news operations and instead airs newscasts from Televisa's networks Canal de las Estrellas, FOROtv, and Gala TV.
