His studios are located on 1276 Enriqueta Compte y Riqué Street, being the only one of the private ones that was always kept in its original place. Its first director was Raúl Galana, but soon Horacio Scheck took his place. The station's antenna was installed for several years on the roof of the newspaper El País, but for several years it has been located in the Congress Tower, in the Tres Cruces district.

The first slogan was "The Family Channel". It first shows were El Show del Mediodía, presented by comedians Cacho de la Cruz and Alejandro Trotta, and Telecataplúm, which managed to achieve great success in Argentina. The channel's newscast is Telemundo.

In 1981, with the beginning of color television in Uruguay, the channel took the name "Teledoce Televisora Color", but then stopped using that name, becoming simply "Teledoce" and later "La Tele". Since 2003 it broadcasts the event to raise funds for disabled children called Telethon Uruguay together with Channel 10. After a few years, Channel 4, TNU, and finally VTV joined.
