TVR1 (Romanian pronunciation: [teveˈre ˈunu], spelled out as Televiziunea Românǎ 1, "Romanian Television 1") is the main channel of the Romanian public broadcaster TVR.

The most important show of the channel is Jurnalul TVR, whose motto is Jurnalul aşa cum ar trebui sǎ fie! ("The news journal as it should be"), but on 28 March 2009 was replaced by Telejurnal. In 1985, Programul 1 renamed again to TVR becoming the sole television channel in Romania.

In 1989, TVR1 broadcast live the events of the revolt which triggered the fall of the Communist regime, covering almost all the main events live, starting from the last speech of Nicolae Ceauşescu (on December 21, 1989) till the new power representatives arrived. A lot of made-up, exaggerated stories and misinformation were broadcast in those days, nevertheless TVR1 was the first television channel to cover all the events of the regime change.
