Canal Siete, TV Pública or TV Pública Digital is an Argentine television network founded on October 17, 1951. Between 1979 and 1999, the network was known as Argentina Televisora Color (ATC). During the 1978 World Cup, it was known as A78TV.

Owned, financed and operated by the Argentine State, Canal 7 is one of Argentina's five nationwide television networks. The station specializes in cultural programming and educational documentaries, sometimes in cooperation with the Buenos Aires University, and coverage of news events, especially government activities.ATC was the first Argentine television station, as well as the first to introduce color television, for the football 1978 FIFA World Cup that took place in Argentina. Of the five terrestrial networks, Canal 7 has the least ratings share. The network is often accused of presenting news with a pro-government bias.

LS82 TV Canal 7 operates from its studio and broadcasting complex on Figueroa Alcorta avenue in Buenos Aires. The building has an innovative design, as it was constructed mostly underground to spoil the skyline as little as possible . Building underground was made possible because the national government had started in the mid '70s work on the "Altar de la Patria": a monument-mausoleum that was expected to house the remains of Evita Perón and Juan Perón; the idea of a mausoleum was rejected when Isabel Martínez de Perón, 3rd wife of Juan Perón, was overthrown from the Presidency by a military coup on March 24, 1976.

The current headquarters, on Figueroa Alcorta Avenue, were designed by Flora Manteola, Javier Sánchez Gómez, Justo Solsona, and Rafael Viñoly, and inaugurated in 1978.
