Network edit

The channel was owned by several companies, such as TV Azteca[3] and Copesa,[4] before being sold to Mexican businessman Remigio Ángel González. The channel was called Red Television (Network Television) for about ten years until 2009, before being reverted to its original name in 2009. It mainly airs Hollywood blockbusters (especially in primetime). It is also the TV station that broadcast the local version of the popular "Big Brother" and WWE shows like WWE Raw and WWE SmackDown.

In audience share, it currently ranks fifth behind TVN, Canal 13, CHV, and Mega.
