La Tele is a minor television network operated by Grupo ATV, in turn owned by Albavisión, airing exclusively imported programming.

History[edit]

Alliance SAC won eight licenses in six provinces to spread the signal of Uranio 15, however, these licenses are currently used to rebroadcast the programming of Andina de Radiodifusión (ATV), channel 9 in Lima. With these licenses, Vera Abad managed to ATV's transmission network, using permits issued on behalf of Uranio 15.

Uranio 15 (established in 1994) was a channel that had some programs led by Oscar Gayoso, Pedro Sanchez, Chris, Roxana among other presenters. Its main program was "The Ranking" and of course a large selection of music videos of all genres, 24 hours a day. Uranio 15 was one of the biggest UHF channels of its time, then in 2007 it started broadcasting music videos without identification.

When Mexican businessman Remigio Ángel González took over the control of Grupo ATV through Albavisión Communications Group LLC, Uranio TV disappeared, replaced by La Tele. At launch, the channel focused on a female demographic, with telenovelas being transmitted on weekdays and movies (already transmitted by ATV) on weekends.

In January 2013, the channel relaunched with premieres of international series in the evening hours and some short programs aimed at women.

In April 2015, the cartoons transmitted on Red Global in the mornings were transferred to this channel upon the other's rebrand to Red TV.

The current schedule consists of programming aimed at children in the morning hours, complemented with telenovelas on the weekdays and American imports on weekends.
