The news channel is partnered with free-to-air network Chilevisión since 2010, when Turner Broadcasting System purchased it for $145 million to Sebastian Piñera's family.

Since 2016, it is completely owned by Turner Broadcasting System Latin America as VTR sold its participation in the channel to them.

ControversiesEdit

2019 advertisement pulling controversyEdit

During 2019, businessman Juan Sutil and food company Agrosuper decided to pull their ads, including some of Agrosuper's brand Super Pollo, from CNN Chile and from Chilevision, purportedly because of a CNN Chile show named "Agenda Agricola", which has shown videos of anti-government protests.[3]
