Imevisión's Logo

In the 1990s, during the presidency of Carlos Salinas de Gortari, several companies were privatized, including Imevisión (Spanish: Instituto Mexicano de Televisión; English Mexican Television Institute), which owned two channels (Red Nacional 7 and Red Nacional 13), which after its privatization, it would be renamed Televisión Azteca, S.A de C.V (except Canal 22 would pass under the power of Conaculta).[3]
