TFX (formerly NT1) is a French television network. It is available through digital terrestrial television in France. It is a subsidiary of TF1 Group.

History

TFX, under the name NT1, was created in 2004 by AB Groupe for the launch of the TNT platform scheduled for March 2005. In late 2004, AB Group announced their intention to call the channel La Quatre (The Four). However, in January 2005, France Télévisions announced that they would rebrand their channel Festival as France 4. AB Groupe decided to revert to the NT1 name.

In June 2009, TF1 Group agreed to buy the channel from AB Groupe, as well as AB's 40% stake in TMC Monte Carlo (which would take TF1's total stake to 80%). The deal was cleared by France's competition authority and subsequently by the Council of State in December 2010, dismissing an appeal by Métropole Télévision.[1]

TF1 Group decided to make a number of changes, notably by upgrading NT1 to 16:9 in November 2010. It was the last DVB-T channel to switch to this format.[2] In addition, NT1 became the group's channel for young adults.[3].

On 19 May 2015, the channel launched its version in HDTV.[4]

On 26 May 2015, TF1, TMC, NT1 and HD1 merged their websites and created the unique website MYTF1.[5]

On 18 October 2017, TF1 Group announced that NT1 will change its name to TFX in 2018.[6]. The rebrand took effect at 9pm on January 30, 2018.
