Canale 5 formed in 1974 as a local TV channel set in Milan, hence the name Telemilano.
Around 1979, Telemilano expanded its transmission on the Center and South Italy under the identification of Canale 10.
Canale 5 launched in 1980 nationwide through a union between Telemilano and 8 other local TV channels in Italy.
Canale 5's logo use was somewhat inconsequential in the early 1980s, with several versions of the logo in use a the same time. From 1984 in conjunction woth the next logo.
This logo was used only as a onscreen bug.
Logo was in fact used starting from 1984 in conjunction with the previous logo. Starting from 8 April 1996, the MEDIASET word is now a fixed element in the logo. Starting from 19 June 2000, the logo is transparent.
