Telecanal is a private owned TV channel of Chile. It currently airs in Santiago on VHF channel 2. The station for the channel mostly airs American films and TV series, and some original entertainment TV shows such as "A las 11".

Development[edit]

Early 2010s[edit]

In early January 2010, Telecanal first part with a journalist, Sergio Molleda, in a presidential debate Anatel. A few days after the debate made the news "Online" driving was stopped issuing Molleda. In late February, "Human influence" and canceled weeks later, the same thing happened with "Only they," and again, the programming focuses on packaged content.

In September 2010 you begin to build a sports area for the transmission of the UEFA Europa League, replacing the network that it had issued in the previous season, and Monday through Friday at midnight Hello sports, covering other disciplines issued other than football, like basketball, volleyball and rugby.

In November of that same year, businessman Jaime Square, then owner of the sign, closed an agreement to sell Telecanal the Mexican, a former executive of Grupo Televisa and former director of Mega Guillermo Canedo White.

In 2011, Telecanal broadcast the UEFA European Under-21 Championship, which was played in Denmark, a fact never before seen on Chilean television.

Mid 2010s[edit]

In 2013, Telecanal ends with tuning an annual rating of 0.43 rating points, even being surpassed by UCV (which reached 1.3 annual tune), the channel less seen of Chilean television. The poor results are explained only in issuing nullspaces packaged programming and live.

In December 2013 a new strip of Mexican soap operas opens at 21:00, with the premiere of A family lucky. With this decision, Telecanal decides to take the NCIS series, which is issued only on weekends.

Since January 1, 2014, José Manuel Larraín assumes the new executive director of the station.

During May of that year, every Saturday in the "Specials of Telecanal" transmitted the national series Picaflor Effect.

Since January, Telecanal began broadcasting "A3D" infomercials from Monday to Sunday, occupying the block from 8 am to 1 pm. Following the departure of its programs "A las 11" and "Teletiempo", Telecanal is dedicated only to its "Entertainers" program.

Controversy[edit]

On July 2005, Compañía Chilena de Comunicaciones (former owner of the frequency) sold the signal to Alfa Tres. Jaime Cuadrado, owner of Alfa Tres, is the former commercial manager of Canal 13 and a personal friend of Mario Kreuzberger (Don Francisco (television host)). Alejandro Martinez, owner of VidaVisión, initiated a lawsuit against Compañía Chilena de Comunicaciones alleging fraud.

Also, Jaime Cuadrado has ties with Mexican media mogul Remigio Ángel González, owner of Red Televisión. It has even been stated that González is the actual owner of the station. Ownership of more than one television station is forbidden by Chilean law to avoid an horizontal monopoly.
