TVP1 (TVP Jeden, Program Pierwszy Telewizji Polskiej,[1] "Jedynka") is the main public television channel of TVP (Telewizja Polska S.A.), Poland's national television broadcaster. It was the first Polish channel to be broadcast and remains one of the most popular today. TVP1 was launched 25 October 1952.


TVP1 was launched as of 25 October 1952 as TVP. The tests resumed in the immediate post-war years and materialized in October 1952 with the launch of the first experimental broadcasts of Polish television. In January 1953, it broadcasts at the rate of half an hour per week, then an hour and a half in March. The schedule of programmes continued to grow and the broadcast time increased to 22 hours per week in 1957, 26 hours in 1958.

Regional studios were added to those in Szczecin and Warsaw in 1956. These were first those of Łódź, Katowice (1957), Poznań (1958) and Gdańsk (1960). Some emblematic programs were born at the end of the 1950s, such as "Telewizyjny Kurier Warszawski" (Warsaw TV News) or the cultural magazine "Pegaz".

An HD feed was launched in January 2011 as a test broadcast. In June 2012, TVP1 HD was officially launched with the coverage of the UEFA Euro 2012
