TV8 as a news channel started broadcasting in 2005, becoming part of the format and logo by changing the entertainment channels. The programs include music, entertainment, contests, sports, talk and news.
On March 17, 2016, TV8 announced that it had acquired the Formula 1 broadcasting rights for one season.
TV8 is the local broadcaster of TV shows like The Voice, Got Talent, Survivor and Utopia.
In August 2014, TV8 dropped the 2013 rebrand and introduced a new logo which does not feature the silver number 8 on an oval anymore. The logo is instead a silver-gradient-glassed number 8 which is shiny and blows up its three coloured curves of red, blue and white. The word "tv" is no more lowercase because it becomes uppercase instead and is connected twice for them. This ended the era of TV8's metal number 8 logo by giving the station a silver-gradient-glassed "8" logo which is created by Racecar and Red Bee Media. The new logo made its first on-air debut on September 1, 2014 by playing a new theme song accompanied by a new slogan saying "Beraberiz".
