SRF 1 is the first television program from Swiss Radio and Television (SRF), a corporate unit of SRG SSR . It is available via cable television or e.g. B. IPTV, as well as encrypted via the Hot Bird 3 satellite at 13 ° East.

Since December 16, 2012, the program has been called SRF 1.


Today's SRF 1 is the oldest television station in German-speaking Switzerland and was also the only Swiss television channel until S plus was launched in 1993 (now Swiss radio and television ). Between the founding of Swiss television in 1953 and that point in time, it was the only program in German-speaking Switzerland that could be received nationwide due to the lack of private competition. Before the SF 2 channel and the “One program on two channels” concept were introduced in 1997, the channel was called SF DRS, and before 1993 it was called DRS or TV DRS.

In 2005, the stations at that time SF 1 and SF 2 were given a new look (as SF 1 and SF two ) and were more clearly differentiated from each other. Since then, children's and youth programs have been shown exclusively on SRF Zwei, the traditional children's hour on SRF 1 the previous evening. Analogue broadcasting ceased on November 26, 2007 in most of Switzerland and on February 25, 2008 in the canton of Valais . Since February 29, 2012, SRF 1 has also been broadcast in HD ( 720p / 50). The broadcast via digital aerial television ( DVB-T ) was discontinued on June 3, 2019.
