Eén (stylized as één; English: "one") 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. The station was formerly known as VRT TV1 until the current Eén branding was launched as part of a major station revamp on 21 January 2005, with a look created by BBC Broadcast.[1]

Eén is the equivalent of its French-language counterpart, La Une, the first channel of the Belgian Francophone broadcaster, RTBF.

On-screen presentation[edit]


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

The last team of announcers was composed of:

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

The in-vision presentation was ditched on 26 July 2015.[2] Since that day, it is replaced by out-of-vision continuity.

Seasonal identity[edit]

As of its 2007 rebrand[citation needed] as één, 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, created by Gédéon Programmes, in early 2009.

Logo history[edit]


Foreign language programmes and segments of local TV programmes with foreign language dialogue (e.g. interviews with people speaking in other languages) are shown with Dutch subtitles.




VRT offered a teletext service as of 8 May 1980 which was stopped on 1 June 2016. The page 888 is still available for subtitles.[3] The service was used by 576,094 persons per day in 2010. The number dropped down to 123,709 in 2014.[4]
