As early as April 5, 1969, Saarländischer Rundfunk, together with what was then Süddeutscher Rundfunk (SDR) and Südwestfunk (SWF) , launched the third TV program Südwest 3 for the states of Baden-Württemberg , Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland . The program was gradually expanded to become a full program until there had been daily broadcasts since 1971. In the blanking interval of this program, the SR started its regional teletext offer on October 2, 1989 under the name SAARTEXT, which is still broadcast today.

With the merger of SDR and SWF to form Südwestrundfunk (SWR) on August 30, 1998, the previous joint third television program Südwest 3 was converted into the two regional variants Südwest BW and Südwest RP . The SR used this restructuring to start its own third television program SR Südwest Fernsehen (initially called SR Fernsehen Südwest ). Since September 11, 2006 the program is officially called SR TV .

Since September 10, 2007, SR TV has broadcast all programs in 16: 9 format. On February 11, 2016, a test operation in HD format 720p began via Astra 19.2 degrees east, which was transferred to regular operation in the course of 2016.
