CNN Chile is a Chilean pay television news channel launched on 4 December 2008. It was originally a joint venture between VTR Chile and Warner Bros. Discovery. The channel is based in Santiago, Chile.
It is the local version of popular TV news channel CNN, which had previously shown interest in the Chilean market when it covered the 2005 presidential elections through CNN en Español.
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.
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.
