BBC One Wales is a television channel operated by BBC Cymru Wales. It is the Welsh variation of the UK-wide BBC One. The service is broadcast in Wales from Broadcasting House in Cardiff. BBC One Wales broadcasts around three hours of non-news programmes for Wales each week alongside six hours a week of national news for Wales from Wales Today.

BBC One Wales branding is utilised between 6am and around 1 am each day with live continuity handled by a team of regional announcers who double up as directors for playout and various Wales Today news bulletins. Continuity from the main BBC One network service is carried overnight until the handover to the BBC News Channel.

A high-definition simulcast of BBC One Wales launched on 29 January 2013 on Freeview, Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.[1] Unlike BBC One HD (which is capable of broadcasting audio content in DTS 5.1), controversially, BBC One Wales HD and BBC One Northern Ireland HD, are currently stereo only, and have been since they launched. On 10 December 2013, BBC One Wales HD was swapped with the SD channel on Sky's EPG for HD subscribers.[2]
