TV Prima is the oldest private TV channel in the Czech Republic and the second-most-watched, after TV Nova. It is the flagship channel of FTV Prima, a Czech commercial broadcaster that was owned by the Swedish Modern Times Group until 2017.

Prima was founded in 1992 as FTV Premiéra and started broadcasting on 20 April 1993. It was renamed to Premiéra TV in 1994 and then to Prima televize in 1997, and finally to Prima in 2005.

Prima received a major makeover on 27 August 2017. While the logo remained the same, it launched a new graphics package that abandoned the longstanding Helvetica Neue font in favour of Hurme Geometric Sans No. 3. The channel’s news division, Prima Zprávy, was rebranded simultaneously. The rebrand was commissioned by the Czech creative agency Department, which has worked with FTV Prima on several occasions. From May 3, 2020, after the launch of CNN Prima News on-screen bug moved to right top corner (only on newscasts).
