TV Breizh (Breizh is Breton for Brittany) is a private French regional station for the Brittany region.


The channel was launched on September 1, 2000 by TF1 and Patrick Le Lay for the purposes of broadcasting regional programming and reruns of TF1 programmes.

TV Breizh tried to obtain an analogue broadcast licence for its region but was rejected by the CSA (Conseil supérieur de l'audiovisuel - Audio and Video Council). In 2004, TV Breizh was a prime candidate for a broadcast licence on Télévision Numérique Terrestre but failed.


TV Breizh concentrates on local programming such as news programmes but also reruns of old TF1 programmes such as Murder, She Wrote, Columbo and films. This has made TV Breizh more of a national entertainment station rather than a purely local station. Programmes in Breton decreased gradually in favour of French programmes, and as of 2010, they have totally disappeared.
