RTM TV1 is a state-owned free-to-air television network in Malaysia, which is owned and operated by Radio Televisyen Malaysia, a government agency. It broadcasts from its headquarters in Angkasapuri, Kuala Lumpur along with its sister channel TV2 and some other radio stations.

First commenced broadcasting on 28 December 1963, TV1 is known as the first and oldest TV station in Malaysia. Currently, TV1 broadcasts for 19.5 hours, from 5:30am to 1am the next day (1:30 am or 2 am during the weekends).

An educational programme series known as TV Pendidikan (Educational Television was broadcast on this channel until 1999, where it moved to TV2 later on. TV Pendidikan was later replaced by eduwebtv.com. TV Pendidikan was also available on Astro until October 2007.

TV1 currently broadcasts via VHF (Very High Frequency), which located on VHF channel 5 in the Klang Valley. However, a weak UHF signal is also receivable.



TV1 began as TV Malaysia on 28 December 1963, in conjunction with 1 January 1964. Singapore already had its own television station ten months earlier. It was part of TV Malaysia and acts as a sister channel to TV1. The two networks separated after Singapore left the federation two years later.

TV1 originally broadcasted in black and white until 1978, when colour television was introduced. Viewers in the Borneo states only received colour broadcasting on Hari Merdeka 1980.

In 1987, a mass restructuring exercise was done and new logos were introduced for TV1[1] and TV2. TV1 was by then known as Saluran Perdana (The Prime Channel).

On 1 January 2007, RTM television stations was once again restructured by Dato' Ahmad Shabery Cheek (former Information Minister). TV1 got a new slogan: 'Saluran Informasi' (The Information Channel) which is currently being used. The restructuring was being done to ensure that RTM will be fully prepared for their digitalisation process by 2012.

Opening and Closing times


TV1 starts up 5 – 10 minutes before the pre-dawn Azan prayers. The national anthem is played, followed by the recitation of the Koran holy words. The first programme of the day follows thereafter.


TV1 closes down at 1am (1:30am or 2am during Saturdays). The last programme, usually a news bulletin or a talk show, will be shown. This is followed by the recitation of the Koran holy words and the national anthem. The test card was broadcast at the end.[2]

Other times

TV1 would broadcast for 24 hours during Ramadan to give way for live Tarawih prayer from Mecca and religious program before Subuh prayer. For some late-night occasion (such as Merdeka celebration or any international games that held in some countries), it typically ends between 1-3 am instead. TV1 had also previously broadcasted 24 hours a day from 31 July 2005 to 31 May 2006 before switching back to normal times.

Clock idents

At first RTM had used the Sultan Abdul Samad Building clock tower in Kuala Lumpur as the clock ident. In 1987, RTM introduced a new clock design - very simple: color background, white hands, white lines, white logo, with the logo inscribed above it. The clock will usually be broadcast before news bulletins and close down.

As of July 2010 RTM is using digital clocks sponsored by MAHSA College.

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
