RTM TV1 (TV1, formerly known as RTM1) is a television station in Malaysia that is owned by the Malaysian Government under the Ministry of Information, and operated by Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM). TV1 was launched on 28 December 1963 as Televisyen Malaysia. TV1 airs local and international news, as well as sports, documentaries and talkshow. It was the first and the oldest television channel in Malaysia. TV1 is now broadcasting from 6:00am until 12:00am. TV1, TV2 and the radio stations that are controlled by RTM are broadcast from their headquarters in Angkasapuri, Kuala Lumpur.

TV1 currently broadcasts under VHF (Very High) Frequency band III and UHF in some areas. However, TV1 still broadcasts under VHF band I in certain remote areas. In the Klang Valley, the VHF channel is 5. It is also available over the RTMi test DVB-T transmission over 658 MHz, SID 1. As of 15 December 2009, it is also available over a test DMB-T/H transmission on Band III.

TV1 is also available over Astro on Channel 101 (formerly channel 21, then channel 5 and channel 1)



TV1, the popular television station from RTM appeared with a new image and a new name to "Saluran Infotainmen Anda" (formerly known as "Saluran Perdana") by the former Information Minister, Datuk Paduka Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir on 3 August 2004 that focuses as the medium for government to channeling information to Malaysians regarding the government affairs and also entertainment such as dramas, music show and films.

The channel changed its slogan to "Saluran Inforia" and was renamed as RTM1 on 1 January 2006 by the former Information Minister, Dato' Zainuddin Maidin. The change of its slogan to "Saluran Inforia" from "Saluran Infotainmen Anda" is in line with the government's policy to use the Malay language properly. "Infotainmen" is deemed improper (as it is a word combining Informasi, a Malay loanword and Entertainmen (Entertainment, an English word.)

On the 1 January 2009, RTM television stations was once again restructured by Dato' Ahmad Shabery Cheek, former Information Minister. RTM1 was renamed back as TV1 and the new slogan "Saluran Informasi" (Information Channel) is currently being used. The restructuring was being done to ensure that RTM will be fully prepared for their digitalisation process by 2012[1].
