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.

On 28 August 2010, it was announced that Turner Broadcasting System Latin America had reached an agreement to purchase it. This assets do not include the analog television channel frequency which is still owned by Universidad de Chile and is used under a paid usufruct scheme, similar to a lease. This contract expired in 2018 and only affected the analog frequencies used by the station. The sale was completed 6 October 2010.
Chilevisión International is the international feed of Chilevisión that broadcasts its programming to audiences in Australia/Oceania. The channel launched in October 2007 in Australia and the following year in New Zealand on UBI World TV. The TVN-owned TV Chile subscription channel also broadcasts limited Chilevisión programming throughout the Americas for the Chilean diaspora.
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, 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.
