Chilevisión (stylised as CHV) is a Chilean free-to-air television channel. It is the third oldest Chilean television network, owned by the University of Chile. This educational institution sold a significant percentage of its TV channel to Venevisión, changing its name to Chilevisión. It was later sold to Claxson Interactive Group and then to Chilean investor and president Sebastián Piñera.

ControversiesEdit

In 2012, Chilevisión has been the focus of a controversy over journalistic ethics. On 16 January 2012 aired an interview that the interviewee appeared, Inés Perez,[3] as a deeply class. The interview produced strong reactions, even leading to the creation of social networking groups against the affected woman. Two days later it knew the full interview, and the reactions were returned against the broadcaster, because it expressed concern Pérez discriminated assumptions and puts everything in context. In response, the broadcaster defended the veracity of the interview and dismissed the officer who leaked the full video, causing even more adverse reactions among viewers.
