Background

Universo is an American pay television channel owned by the NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises subsidiary of NBCUniversal. The network serves as a companion cable channel to the NBCUniversal's flagship broadcast television network NBC and, to some extent, its Spanish network Telemundo. The network was launched on October 10, 1993 as GEMS Television, and since then, it is aimed at Hispanic adults between the ages of 18 and 49, where the majority of its programming consists mainly of sports, scripted and reality series, and music programming. The network is headquartered in Miami Springs, Florida, while its master control operations are housed at the CNBC Global Headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

1st Logo (2015-2017)

Logo: Against a rainy background, we see blood dripping where it leaves space for the NBC peacock to resemble. Once the blood is done dripping, the background changes to a table with the top of a pumpkin seen in center & half of the company name can be seen. A split second later, the pumpkin gets cut in half where the top half shows the NBC Peacock as a pumpkin. Then the screen glitches, making the background black, the company name a red outline, & the Peacock is purple & red. It then cuts to a black map background with 6 wooden drop-shaped icons resembling the Peacock. Then a metal outline of the Peacock lands on it & blood is splattered. Then the wooden icons turn into chains & we move away from the peacock to resemble a stone wall with blood on the left side & the company name in black next to the peacock. Smoke can noticeably be resembled behind the peacock.

Technique: Traditional animation, live-action, Toon-Boom, stop-motion and CGI.
