La 1 (La Uno, 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.

La 1 is state-owned and 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.

Timeline of La 1 naming[edit]

Televisión Española (TVE), was the original name of the channel from 1956 until the launch of sister channel La 2 in 1965. It was known from then mainly as Primera Cadena, and alternately in the 1970's as Primer Programa, (TVE1). In the 1990's it was renamed as La Primera, a name used until 2008, when it got its current name, La 1 (La Uno).
