SABC 1 is a South African public television network operated by the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) which carries programming in English and Nguni.

It was created in 1996, after the SABC restructured its television channels. SABC 1 carried much of its programming over from the TV1 network, which was itself made up of the former TV2, TV3 and TV4 timeshared channels created in the 1980s. SABC 1 generates the widest audience in South Africa due to its programming diversity, airing SABC’s longest-running soap-opera, GenerationsUzalo and Skeem Saam.
