UOL TV was the first television station that broadcast exclusively over the Internet. Being part of the portal Universe Online, it had its first broadcast in 1997, using the VDOLive format. Currently the format used in the transmissions is Adobe Flash and TV UOL has adopted Windows Media and Real Media in the past.

Besides broadcaster, currently the TVUOL is also a portal for videos, allowing users to submit their videos via the page "Mais Uol". The Mais Uol is still in beta, but sending videos, photos and other multimedia content is already permitted, and it still allows the sharing of video for blogs, websites, forums, etc. via embed code of the video. It's currently the fourth largest free video sharing website in the world, with over 2 million videos (January 2015).
