TV4 is the largest commercial television channel in Sweden. It started broadcasting by satellite in 1990 and, since 1992, in the terrestrial network. In 1994, TV4 became the largest channel for many years. The two channels of Sveriges Television (SVT) lost more and more viewers for a couple of years. But in 2001, SVT made big schedule changes. After making schedule changes in 2001, SVT1 had practically the same numbers of viewers as TV 4. SVT1 and TV4 in Sweden are in many ways corresponding to BBC ONE and ITV in the United Kingdom.
News is an important part of TV4. They broadcast the news program "Nyheterna", literally the News, twice a day in the evenings and "Nyhetsmorgon", News-Morning, in the mornings.
