TF1 is a private French TV channel, controlled by TF1 Group, whose major share-holder is Bouygues. TF1's 35% average market share, achieved on the ménagères de moins de 50 ans audience segment (house-wives less than 50 years old) makes it the most popular domestic network. It is a part of the TF1 Group of mass media companies, which also includes Eurosport, the largest European sports network.

Together with France Télévisions, TF1 co-manages the international French news channel France 24.

TF1 originally stood for Télévision Française 1 (French Television 1) but since its 1987 privatisation, the abbreviation is no longer expanded, since this would introduce a confusion with France Télévisions.
