However, in 1994, it was renamed to DR TV1 and then later, in 1996, it was known as DR1 as its current name.

In 1994, DR TV changed its name to DR TV1 and introduced a new logo with a large "1" within a TV screen. The official name was still DR TV, but this was the last logo to wear DR's 1964 logo scheme and also to carry the DR TV brand, because this logo is typically short-lived for 2 years.

To coincide with the introduction of DR's new corporate logo on August 30, 1996, DR TV1 changed its name to DR1 and introduced a new logo that has DR's new corporate logo on the top with the symbol appear at the bottom of it, but its still retained from the channel's previous logo.

At the same time, DR started its second television channel DR2, so this means that an identity relaunch was about to occure for all of DR, and the new corporate logo was updated.
