Watch El Trece Canal 13 Live TV from Argentina
General TV Channel / Channel 13 or El Trece is an Argentine television network and the flagship station of the same network, located in the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires. Channel 13 was founded on October 1, 1960 and began broadcasting at 20:30. The channel was tendered to the company Rio de la Plata SA TV, made by Cuban Goar Mestre, the U.S. network CBS and Time-Life company. In 1974, the government of Isabel Perón nationalized the station along with two other private channels of Buenos Aires (Canal 9 and Telefe), in order to bring a media policy in the European style, where television was largely directed from the State. After 15 years as a government owned station, on December 1989, Artear, a company with majority ownership by Graphic Arts Editorial Argentino S.A (AGEA), publisher of the Newspaper Clarín and part of its multimedia conglomerate, officially took over the station management.
