The channel began broadcasting on 3 December 2007, at 20:00 CET.[2]

Programming came from the four TV networks operated by SRG SSR (Schweizer Fernsehen, Télévision Suisse Romande, Radiotelevisione svizzera di lingua italiana and Radio Television Rumantscha), plus music concerts and documentaries (produced by National Geographic Channel).

The channel broadcast in all four national languages of Switzerland: German, French, Italian and Romansh.[2]
