Eén (English: one, stylized as één) is a public Dutch-language TV station in Belgium, owned by the VRT, which also owns Ketnet, Canvas and several radio stations. Although the channel is commercial-free, short sponsorship messages are broadcast in between some programmes.

Eén focuses on drama, entertainment, news and current affairs in a similar vein to BBC One in the United Kingdom.[original research?] The station was formally known as VRT TV1 until the current Eén branding was launched as part of a major station revamp on 21 January 2005.

Eén is considered to be the equivalent of its Walloon counterpart, La Une, the first channel of the Belgian Francophone (French-speaking) broadcaster, RTBF.

On-screen presentation[edit]

Continuity[edit]

Along with its sister channel Ketnet, Eén is currently one of 21 stations in Europe to utilise in-vision continuity presentation. Four regular staff announcers (as of January 2014) present in-vision and out-of-vision links from lunchtime until around midnight or in the early hours (if necessary) each day.

The current team of announcers are:

  • Andrea Croonenberghs (senior announcer)
  • Geena Lisa Peeters
  • Eva Daeleman
  • Saartje Vandendriessche

Seasonal identity[edit]

As of its 2005 rebrand[citation needed] as Eén, the channel uses different idents, logos, blips and a different colour scheme every season. This seasonality concept was abolished when Eén got a new look in early 2009.
