TVW-7 Perth began transmission on 16 October 1959. Starting in 1965, TVW-7 and rival STW-9 launched a joint company entitled TV Facilities to allow the two Perth channels to share access to networked programs from the east coast. The callsign stood for Television Western Australia.
This logo was also used by HSV7 in Melbourne from 1956 to 1969. In 1971, TVW Enterprises was purchased by SAS-10, now SAS-7.
This was used by TVW-7 between March 1975 and October 1977 when it adoped the rainbow logo used by the eastern states.
In 1978, TVW-7 finally took on an affiliation and aligned itself with Seven's eastern stations. In 1982, both TVW-7 and SAS-10 were purchased by Robert Holmes à Court's Bell Group.
