SABC 1 is a public service South African television channel broadcast by the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) which carries programming in English and Nguni languages.

It was created in 1996, after the SABC restructured its television channels. SABC 1 carried much of its programming over from the defunct CCV (Contemporary Community Values) channel, which was itself made up of the old TV2, TV3 and TV4 channels created in the 1980s. SABC 1 generates the widest audience in South Africa due to its programming diversity, airing SABC's longest showing soapie Generations. The slogan for the channel is "Mzansi fo sho".

SABC's head office and studio is based in Auckland Park, Johannesburg and they also have offices in Cape Town.
