Eén (English: one, stylized as één) 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. The station was formerly known as VRT TV1 until the current Eén branding was launched as part of a major station revamp on 21 January 2005, with a look created by BBC Broadcast.[2]

Eén is considered to be the equivalent of its Walloon counterpart, La Une, the first channel of the Belgian Francophone (French-speaking) broadcaster, RTBF.

On-screen presentation[]

Continuity[]

With its sister channel Ketnet, Eén was one of 21 stations in Europe to utilise in-vision continuity presentation. Four regular staff announcers (as of January 2014) were presenting in-vision and out-of-vision links from lunchtime until around midnight or in the early hours (if necessary) each day.

The last team of announcers was composed of:

The in-vision presentation was ditched on 26 July 2015.[3] Since that day, it is replaced by out-of-vision continuity.

Seasonal identity[]

As of its 2007 rebrand[citation needed] as één, the channel uses different idents, logos, blips and a different colour scheme every season. This seasonality concept was abolished when Eén got a new look, created by Gédéon Programmes, in early 2009.
