ETC is a Chilean cable television channel currently owned by Mega. The channel's slogan is "Todo pasa por Etc..." (Everything Happens on Etc...). Launched in 1996, the company was previously owned by Telefilms Ltda. Starting with a low budget, the channel was originally conceived as a "miscellaneous" channel (the name of the channel, ETC, is based on et cetera), focusing on children's programming and some North American sitcoms in its first year. In 1997, when the channel aired Sailor Moon and Saint Seiya, it experienced an increase in its ratings, leading it to narrow its focus to include primarily Japanese anime, though, in recent years, it has also added some South Korean programming including K-pop and television dramas.
