In 2011, Jean-Paul Baudecroux, president of NRJ Group, proposed a television project to launch a new channel named Chérie HD.
In 2012, following the shutdown of analogue television, the Conseil supérieur de l'audiovisuel (CSA) auditioned the NRJ Group following its application for an additional channel from one of the six national HD channels on TNT, and finally had chosen for Chérie HD.
In October 2012, two months before the station was launched, the name Chérie HD was changed to Chérie 25, with 25 referring to the channel's number on the French digital terrestrial television (TNT).
