La 1 (The One), is the flagship television channel of Spanish public broadcaster Radiotelevisión Española (RTVE). It was launched on 28 October 1956, being the first television service to ever operate in Spain.

Its programming is aimed to a wide range of audiences and includes news (Telediario & Informe Semanal), debate programmes, documentaries, sports and entertainment shows.

Even though La 1 is state-owned, until 31 December 2009 it did show adverts in order to fund itself. On 31 December 2013, an HD simulcast called La 1 HD was launched. It airs in a 720p HDTV resolution.
