Established in 1988 as the first commercial general interest television broadcaster in Norway. Was quite popular during the first years, when they produced a gameshow that seemed to have filled a void in Norwegian popular culture, but has mostly been replaced by TV2 today. Now it is somewhat cheesy, basically airing cheap foreign programming. Produces no or little original material.

Owned by Scandinavian Broadcasting Systems (50,7%) and TV2 (49,3%).
