HistoryEdit

Televisión Española (TVE), was the original name of the channel from 1956 until the launch of sister channel TVE2 in 1966. It was known from then mainly as Primera Cadena, and alternately in the 1970s as Primer Programa and later as TVE1. In the 1990s it was renamed as La Primera.[citation needed]

La 1 is state-owned and until 31 December 2009 it did show adverts in order to fund itself.[1] On 31 December 2013, an HD simulcast called La 1 HD was launched.[2]
