The channel started test transmissions on 13 August 1957 and began regular broadcasts on 1 January 1958 as Suomen Television. When Yleisradio took over Tampere-based Tamvisio in 1964, Suomen Television was renamed TV-ohjelma 1 and Tamvisio became TV-ohjelma 2 – and when they started broadcasting in color in the 1970s, they were rebranded again, as TV1 and TV2.
