ATV Sur is a Peruvian broadcast television channel , owned by Grupo ATV . It was launched on November 10, 2011 and broadcasts from Arequipa to the south of the country by open signal and as a national subscription television channel . It is the first television station in the interior of the country to broadcast its signal via satellite. [ citation required ]


The idea of ​​founding a television channel by Arequipa businessman Enrique Mendoza Núñez arose in 1984 with the creation of the Compañía de Radiodifusión Arequipa Sociedad Anónima (CRASA), which broadcast its first test signal in February 1986 on channel 8 of the VHF band. Having complied with the requirements of the Law, on August 8 of the same year, it officially began broadcasting under the name Canal 8 Arequipa , to compete with Canal 2 de Arequipa (a subsidiary of Panamericana Televisión ) and Televisión Continental (channel 6, a subsidiary of América Televisión ). It was the first ATV subsidiary in Arequipa until 1998. Therefore, its corporate image was inspired by that of channel 9 in Lima.

In 1994, Channel 8 expanded its coverage in other cities in the south of the country within the UHF band. On February 28, 1996, by a resolution of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC), the channel moved to frequency 9 of the VHF band and changed its name to El canal de Arequipa . In 1997, CRASA and Norperuana de Radiodifusión ceased to be ATV subsidiaries, leased the 11 VHF frequency in Lima ( RBC Televisión ) and formed Austral Televisión , a channel that began broadcasting in 1998. However, Austral was dissolved in 2002 due to internal problems .

Thus, in 2003, Arequipa's channel 9 became independent and two years later, on January 31, 2005, it was renamed Peru TV and became the first regional channel to transmit via satellite.

On October 18, 2011, the Mendoza family sold all its shares of the channel to Grupo ATV for S /. 7 million. Days after the purchase was completed, the relaunch of the channel as ATV Sur was announced and it would focus its broadcasts on the south of the country.

On November 10, 2011, the channel officially changed its name to ATV Sur , in a ceremony attended by executives such as Marcello Cúneo and main stars of the ATV Group such as Magaly Medina and Pilar Higashi.

For his part, Enrique Mendoza del Solar, continued as general manager of the television station. In mid-July 2013, Enrique Sifuentes assumed the leadership of ATV Sur as General Manager. [ 1 ]
