The name of the channel, HTV 7, is a derivative from Ho Chi Min TV, but before it was called Saigon Television, which was changed to Liberation TV in 1975. The visual identity of one of the most famous Vietnamese channels has always been pretty simple and neat, based on one composition, created in 1995.
