NRK1 is the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's (NRK) main television channel. Test broadcasts started on 12 January 1954, regular test broadcasts started on 13 April 1958 and regular broadcasts started on 20 August 1960. It is Norway's oldest and largest television channel. Previously known as simply as "NRK", the channel now known as "NRK1", to distinguish itself from sister channel "NRK2", which started broadcasting in 1996.

Besides its own productions, the channel also broadcasts co-productions with other Nordic countries through Nordvision, as well as a significant amount of programmes from English-speaking countries like the United States, Britain, and Australia, all in the original language with Norwegian subtitles. Its news programme is called Dagsrevyen.

In 2010, NRK HD was launched, broadcasting at 720p. NRK HD was set to make its first official broadcasting from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics opening ceremony, but the first HD broadcast was actually Super Bowl XLIV, February 7, 2010.
