UA: Pershyi (Ukrainian : UA:Перший, uɐ:pɛrʃɪj) is the public television channel in Ukraine, operated by the Public Broadcasting Company of Ukraine.

Contents

It is the only Ukrainian TV channel covering over 97% of Ukraine's territory. Its programs are oriented toward all levels of Ukrainian society and national minorities. Among priority directions of the network are information, popular science, culture, entertainment and sports.

It was launched in 2015 as the main TV channel of the newly created public broadcaster. The channel has replaced Pershyi Natsionalnyi (Ukrainian : Перший національний, First National), the state-operated TV channel that traced its origin to the Soviet UT (Ukrainian : Українське телебачення, Ukrainian Television) and after dissolution of the Soviet Union UT-1.

UA: Pershyi is not influenced by the state nor by Ukrainian oligarchs, which makes it one of the most transparent and reliable media in Ukraine. [1] The channel has a series of journalistic investigations related to corruption in Ukrainian politics, including incidents that were related to the incumbent (at the time) presidents Petro Poroshenko and Volodymyr Zelensky.

In 2019, it was announced that the channel will change its name to Suspilne TV (Ukrainian : Суспільне ТБ, Public Television) as a part of rebranding process of the public broadcaster. [2] The new name is expected to replace the current one in 2021.

Between 1991 and 1995, the logo was in the bottom-right corner and then (19951997) the logo was in the top left corner. From 1997present, it is in the top right corner.
