Eén is a public Dutch-language TV station in Belgium, owned by the VRT, which also owns Ketnet, Canvas and several radio stations. Although the channel is commercial-free, short sponsorship messages are broadcast in between some programmes.
Eén focuses on drama, entertainment, news and current affairs in a similar vein to BBC One in the United Kingdom.[original research?] The station was formally known as VRT TV1 until the current Eén branding was launched as part of a major station revamp on 21 January 2005.
Eén is considered to be the equivalent of its Walloon counterpart, La Une, the first channel of the Belgian Francophone (French-speaking) broadcaster, RTBF.
