History

The channel was originally launched by the Korean Broadcasting System on 2 February 1981 as KBS3 and all the educational television programmes previously broadcast on other KBS channels were moved to there.

In 1990, when the responsibility of broadcasting educational contents was spun off from KBS, the channel became part of the newly-formed Educational Broadcasting System. The channel was rebranded as EBS Television.

In 2000, the Educational Broadcasting System itself was turned into a public corporation. Digital terrestrial transmission began on 5 November 2001 on channel 10.1. On 11 February 2015, when EBS2 was launched, EBS was rebranded as EBS1.
