Defunct Originated Programming[edit]


Although the station belongs to the Pontifical Catholic University of Valparaíso, its income is totally derived from sponsors and advertising.

It airs news (four live broadcasts a day), TV comedies (Journeyman, My Name is Earl, Bones, Scrubs, American Dad!, Saving Grace), drama: (24, Lost), and World Wrestling Entertainment flagship show WWE Raw, documentaries, infomercials and some low budget entertainment TV shows. Recently it entered into an alliance with Canal 13, re-airing some of Canal 13's produced children's programming like Villa Dulce and others.

It is best known for children's programming El Mundo del Profesor Rossa 1981-1984, Pipirapao 1983-2008, Enetenetu, Pequelandia and others), music video programs (re-airing old Midnight Special shows from 1974-1978, OK 1992-1996, El Galpón 2000-2002), and sports commentary (Show de Goles 1975-2000).

For many years UCV Television had a second signal in La Serena called Canal 8 UCV TV, now operating on channel 9.
