Galavisión was founded on September 1, 1968, as Televisión Independiente de Mexico (TIM). TIM later merged with Telesistema Mexicano becoming Televisión Vía Satélite better known as Televisa. In April 2013 Galavisión changed its name to Gala TV.


The Gala TV schedule features mainly reruns of major Mexican telenovelas, reruns of Televisa series, soccer and lucha libre. On March 18, 2008 it was announced that an agreement was made between Televisa and NBCUniversal that Galavisión would broadcast Telemundo programs on Galavisión as well as on selected channels of SKY México and Cablevision beginning in April 2008.[3]
