NPO 1 (formerly Nederland 1 Dutch pronunciation: until 2014) is the first national television station in the Publieke Omroep deliver programs. A wide variety of programs is broadcast on the channel, usually for larger audiences. In 2008, it was the most viewed channel in the Netherlands, reaching a market share of 22.5% for the evening (18:00–00:00 hours).[2]

On 16 September 2007, the NPO channels Nederland 1, Nederland 2 and Nederland 3 switched completely to anamorphic widescreen—before that time, only some of the programming was broadcast in widescreen.

On 4 July 2009, all three channels began simulcasting in 1080i high-definition.[3] Before the launch of the permanent HD service, a test version of the Nederland 1 HD channel was made available from 2 June 2008 until 24 August 2008 in order to broadcast Euro 2008, the 2008 Tour de France and the 2008 Summer Olympics in HD.
