Radio Sweden's news about media in Sweden, from shortwave to satellites and online media

50 Years of Swedish TV

Published tisdag 5 september 2006 kl 15.27
Election Night Broadcast 1956

Television in Sweden is celebrating its 50th anniversary.

The live gala broadcast has been scheduled for October 21, but the first “official” broadcast from Sveriges Radio was on September 4, 1956.

There had been tests since 1954, but the September 4 broadcast was the real thing, a program called “Will You Be Voting?” before the elections two weeks later.

In recent years Swedish Television (SVT) was split away from Swedish Radio. Today there are the two analog TV channels SVT1 and SVT2, along with three cable/digital channels: news channel 24, children’s channel Barnkanalen, and the documentary channel Kunskapskanalen. There is also a satellite channel for Swedes abroad, SVT Europa.

Our journalism is based on credibility and impartiality. Swedish Radio is independent and not affiliated to any political, religious, financial, public or private interests.
