History[edit]

Transmissions began on 7 February 1966. Programming initially occupied just one hour daily, broadcast on the local frequencies of Rete 2 (today's Rai 2) between 20.00 and 21.00. On 15 December 1979 Rai Sender Bozen began broadcasting on its own dedicated channel.

Weekly airtime[edit]

Unlike all other RAI channels, Rai Südtirol is not on air 24/7. It also broadcasts for different periods of time day by day. Outside its own broadcasting hours, Sender Bozen's frequencies are used by Rai 3.
