History

Following the acquisition of channel 20 from the Television Broadcasting System Group, from 5 May 2017 to 22 March 2018, Mediaset broadcast a provisional program consisting of fiction and telenovelas from the Mediaset library, with the brand Retecapri, which, from 22 March 2018, had given way to promos advertising the new channel 20.
