History[edit] KBS TV began broadcasting on December 31, 1961, as South Korea's first full-scale television station. Regular broadcasts commenced on January 15 the following year. KBS1
KBS1
was once known for being one of the first commercial TV stations in South Korea. But in 1963, the South Korean government through its parliament, introduced the Television License Fee system. Advertisements
Advertisements
on KBS1
KBS1
were abolished in 1994. The monopoly was broken in 1965 when TBC began broadcasting. In 1980, following KBS's acquisition of various private broadcasters, it became known as KBS1. KBS 1TV began 24-hour broadcasting on October 8, 2012, the first channel in South Korea
South Korea
to do so, in line with the digital switchover and following the lifting the ban of broadcasting into the early hours of the morning on terrestrial television. Even though KBS1
KBS1
is 24 hours, they continue closing down on Sunday and Monday nights, due to technical maintenance. Programming[edit] KBS 1TV is the home of predominantly the news, current affairs, talkshow and documentary programmes being produced by KBS, as well as primetime daily dramas and weekend historical and literature series. It also airs musical shows. All KBS 2TV
KBS 2TV
dramas are also shown on this channel as reruns, notably the Monday/Tuesday dramas & Wednesday/Thursday dramas.[citation needed] KBS 1TV has musical variety shows, but unlike its sister channel, KBS 2TV and most commercial stations which air it on a live basis, most KBS 1TV musical shows are either recorded or broadcast live on special occasions as specials. The only live music program shown on this channel is National Singing Contest (also known as Korea Sings), a talent contest currently shown since 1980. Funding[edit] Since 1994, KBS1
KBS1
is solely funded by license fees. Although commercial advertisements are not allowed on the channel, KBS1
KBS1
accepts spot advertisements similar to the ones being used by PBS to generate private funding. This is usually implemented for programs such as public affairs and musical variety shows wherein, the show's host/s will only thank the sponsor's brand name but will not promote it directly. Spot advertisements for KBS1
KBS1
shows appear before the show's end credits. Advertising[edit] KBS1
KBS1
had stopped accepting ads since 1994, and is prohibited to air commercial advertisements due to the revised Broadcasting Act, but is allowed to show public service ads of government agencies, most of which are from KOBACO, which lost its monopoly on TV advertising in May 2012.[1] Besides showing public ads, they also show program previews for this channel and/or from their sister channels, public messages from the Government and the safety messages produced either by KBS or the Government agencies. These ads or messages are often shown before the station ident is shown, or if the ident isn't shown, before the program starts, the national anthem is played when they restart their transmission at 4:50am (KST).
