History

Cablevisión was founded on October 3, 1960, by a group of 10 people led by architect Benjamín Burillo Pérez. In 1969, the Communications and Transportation Secretary granted the company, then with 300 subscribers, temporary permission to install 124 kilometres (77 mi) of coaxial cable in Colonia Roma. That same year, Cablevisión became a part of Grupo Televisa, which was owned by businessman Emilio Azcárraga Milmo.[citation needed]

In 2006, 49% of Cablemás and 50% of TVI (a.k.a. Cablevisión Noreste) were acquired. In 2007, Bestel Company was acquired.
