SRF 1 is the first television channel in Switzerland. Belong Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen (SRF), a part of SRG SSR. Today it can be received via cable TV and satellite, among other things.
Today's SRF 1 live is the oldest television channel in German-speaking Switzerland and was also the only channel of Swiss television (today Swiss radio and television) until the launch of S plus in 1993. Between the founding of Swiss television in 1953 and that time, it was thus, due to the lack of private competition, the only nationally receivable program in German-speaking Switzerland. Before the introduction of the channel SF 2 or the concept of "One program on two channels" in 1997, the channel was called SF DRS, before 1993 DRS or TV DRS.
In 2005, the former channels SF 1 and SF 2 received new appearances (as SF 1 and SF two) and were more clearly differentiated from each other. Since then, children's and youth programs have been shown exclusively on SRF two, the traditional children's hour on the eve was on SRF 1.
