TVI's first logo, which resembled a cross. This logo was used until 1994.

TVI was the second private Portuguese TV channel to be launched, after SIC being launched five months before. Already under the name TVI, but marketed as 4, in which the 4 was the sole element of its logo, TVI was initially owned by some prominent Catholic Church institutions, including Rádio Renascença, Universidade Católica Portuguesa and União das Misericórdias; Antena 3 Televisión, Compagnie Luxembourgeoise de Télédiffusion, Sonae and many other media enterprises were minor stakeholders of TVI. This majority-Catholic ownership influenced TVI's programming according to Christian values. In the first years of its existence, TVI assumed the role of an 'alternative' television broadcaster, dedicating part of its airtime to distinct target audiences, with part of the morning dedicated to housekeepers and the elderly and part of the afternoon to the young.

TVI was well known for its programming of American series and movies, like X-Files and Baywatch and the Spanish show Juego de La Oca (translated as Jogo do Ganso). TVI also brought in some prominent names in Portuguese television, including Manuel Luis Goucha and Arthur Albarran, but the viewing figures had were always lower than expected ones and it entered into deep financial crisis.

TVI's recovery happened when it was totally acquired by Media Capital in 1999, one of the most important media conglomerates in Portugal, and then it started broadcasting more Portuguese-produced programmes, like soap operas. This helped to build up its viewership significantly, but it was in September 2000, when the Big Brother contest started, that TVI gained a boost in popularity.

Now the most watched network in the country, TVI is known for having a large number of national reality shows and soap operas. TVI broadcasts a mix of local productions, like soap operas, family series and reality shows, news programs and international movies and series (mostly American). It is currently owned by Media Capital, which is owned by Grupo Prisa. The network works with Media Capital-owned production company NBP to produce its national fictional content.

Unlike state broadcaster RTP and commercial rival SIC, TVI tried, without success, to dub foreign programmes into Portuguese after achieving marginal success with Venezuelan Spanish-language soap operas dubbed to Portuguese in Brazil.

Although TVI and Cuatro are twin channels (same position, same ownership), they present very different types of programming. Cuatro has a more young and cultural output, and TVI is more directed to the elderly and the naïve part of the Portuguese population ('novelas', As Tardes da Júlia). Cuatro (Four) is a Spanish private television channel broadcasting since November 2005. ...
