RTÉ One is the Republic of Ireland's oldest and most popular television channel, produced by Irish state broadcaster Radio Telefís Éireann. The station began life in 1961 as Telefís Éireann. RTÉ One carries mostly Irish made programmes, consisting of News, Current Affairs, Lifestyle programming and Drama.
RTÉ One was also the sole Irish TV channel until 1978, when RTÉ Two (also known for many years as Network 2) was created. Since 1998 RTÉ One also competes with TV3, a commercial TV channel now mostly owned by Britain's ITV plc and Canada's CanWest Global. RTÉ One today not only competes with the other Irish TV channels, but also with the UK TV networks and other satellite and cable channels that are widely available across Ireland.
RTÉ One is almost universally available on the VHF and UHF bands in Ireland (though VHF has mostly been phased out), and is available on the Sky Digital satellite service for Republic of Ireland subscribers only.
