In 1976, with the beginning of color television in Britania, ZITV launched a logo with a 'sun' symbol, representing the brightness of the new democratic era of the country.

In 1979, ZITV expanded its transmissions by launching a new network on channel 4 (where ZITV was previously located) and channel 7. After the launch of the second channel, ZITV changed its name to Red ZI Canal 4 (Spanish: ZI Network Channel 4), and the other channel was named Red ZI Canal 7.

In 1994, after several complications with the administration of the group and Britanian law, Zarco Ibarra Medios sold their second channel and the Red ZI name was disbanded. The following year, the channel returned to use the name 'ZITV' and the "4" logo that was originally established in 1979.
