TVN7 is a Polish television channel specialising in action, drama and comedy shows and movies. Owned by TVN Group,[1] the channel was launched in March 2002, replacing RTL 7.


RTL 7 was launched on December 6, 1996 (The Final Countdown by Europe served as the background music during the countdown), and the first program broadcast was The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper.[2] In the initial period of its activity, when creating the first schedule, the RTL 7 editorial team placed special emphasis on productions whose names were centered around the number seven.

Soon, the headquarters in Luxembourg introduced significant budget cuts, which meant that the station's financing was limited (even though the popularity of the RTL 7 channel was systematically growing over several years of its existence). In 1999, Universal Studios also withdrew from financing the station.[3] At the end of March 2000, the news program 7 minut- Events of the Day was taken off the air, and the Zoom program a few months later. At the same time, the station's logo and graphic design were changed (which was modeled on the Dutch channel owned by CLT-UFA under the name Veronica in 1996–2001). In this way, the station wanted to distance itself from its old image. The channel's own production was reduced to zero. Another reason was the takeover of the Nasza TV channel that cooperated with RTL 7 (and renaming it to TV4) by Polsat. As a result, after several years of programming cooperation, the programs of the Luxembourg broadcaster were no longer retransmitted via terrestrial channels.

Finally, at the end of 2001, RTL 7 was purchased by the Polish ITI Group. On March 1, 2002, it was replaced by TVN Siedem, broadcasting mainly reruns of films and series from TVN's main channel.

On 1 September 2008, the station's image was refreshed. A new logo was introduced, based on the number seven, incorporated into a white and purple circle, and thus the name of the channel was changed to TVN 7. The station gained new graphics and music. The logo has been moved to the upper right corner of the screen.

The program was divided into thematic bands distinguished by a characteristic graphic language and color. The changed image of the channel was to define a new viewer profile - a young, active recipient from a big city. The changes were accompanied by the introduction of many new items to the schedule.

From 1 September 2014, the fourth graphic design is on the air, dominated by the colors: orange, fuchsia and anthracite. A different logo also appeared, resembling the graphic symbol of the main station. The musical setting has also changed. Two new bands appeared on the station: the soap opera "Loving Afternoon" and the documentary "Dokument w Siódemce".

On 30 August 2021, the graphic design was changed and the logo was refreshed.

TVN 7 launched its HD version on 4 November 2011.
