SVT1 is the primary television station of the Swedish public service broadcaster Sveriges Television in Sweden.


The channel began broadcasting in 1956 and was known as "Radiotjänst TV", A year later, it was renamed "Sveriges Radio TV". In 1969, the second television station TV2 was launched and the existing channel became "TV1". Both channels became a part of Sveriges Television (SVT) in the late 1970s.

When SVT reorganised the two stations in 1987, "TV1" would only broadcast programmes produced in Stockholm. In 1996, the channels were reorganised again and renamed "SVT1" and "SVT2". Another reorganisation took place in 2001 with the primary target of making SVT1 the most popular television channel in Sweden.

SVT's main entertainment shows, the most popular being Melodifestivalen, Så ska det låta and På spåret are broadcast on this channel. Since 2006, SVT1 has fallen behind to commercial rival, TV4 (Sweden) in terms of audience share (22.2% for TV4 as opposed to SVT1's 19%).


On weekdays, a typical broadcast day on SVT1 begins with the breakfast programme "Gomorron Sverige" (Good Morning Sweden) before the station hands over to the educational broadcasting company Utbildningsradion at 9:30am. SVT1 resumes with lunchtime programmes at 12:00pm before signing off the air until around 3-4pm. SVT1 programming continues throughout the remainder of the day and includes "Bolibompa", an hour of children's programmes from 5pm and the main news programme "Rapport" at 7:30pm. Since December 2004, SVT1 broadcasts through the night with a simulcast of the news channel SVT24. From 25 August, the main editions of the regional news moved from SVT2 to SVT1. This is the first time SVT1 has carried regional programming, the move has been made possible by digitalisation. On the same day, SVT introduced new logos to its channels.
