A1 News Channel (formerly TV Balkan, A1 TV, A1 Report) was an all-news private television station in Tirana, Albania founded by media mogul Koco Kokedhima and owned by Shekulli newspaper.
A1 Report started as TV Balkan in 2002 but quickly changed the name to A1 TV. During that time period, A1 tried to attract a broader audience through shows such as Paparazzi and Heat. It was also the only station with purely economic TV shows like A1 Biznes and Kapital. News is updated in real-time 24 hours a day. Since January 2007, A1 Television started airing movies and it probably has the latest and most famous movies of any local television in Albania, although it rarely advertises the fact, to comply with its 'new channel' image.
In the next few years, it changed logos several times and became A1 Report affiliated with Shqiptarja.com newspaper. In 2016, Carlo Bollino withdrew from this joint-venture and opened his own channel named Report TV. As a result, Kokedhima re-branded the channel as A1 News Channel.
