TV1000 is a group of cable and satellite movie channels broadcasting to the Nordic countries and owned by Modern Times Group (MTG). It is also the name of the flagship channel.

TV1000 was started by Kinnevik in 1989. In 1991, it merged with another pay movie channel called SF Succé. In February 1995, a sister channel called TV1000 Cinema, or just "Cinema", launched. When Viasat launched its digital platform, TV1000 and Cinema got two time-shift channels, each broadcasting the content with one and two hour delays.

On September 1, 2004 TV1000 had a major overhaul. Cinema and three of the time-shift channels closed down and were replaced by four themed movie channels. The line-up would then be:
* TV1000
* TV1000 Plus One (one hour time-shift of TV1000)
* TV1000 Family
* TV1000 Action
* TV1000 Nordic
* TV1000 Classic

Initially, the channel was only available in Scandinavia. In the beginning of 2004, TV1000 East launched targeting the Baltic countries, Russia and other Eastern European countries. A channel broadcasting only Russian movies called TV1000 Russkoe Kino ("ТВ1000 Русское Кино") launched in October 2005. TV1000 Balkan, a version targeting the Balkan countries, was launched in 2006. [cite book | url=http://mtg.verktyget.se/websites/webb_filer/filbank/MTG%20Annual%20Report%202005.pdf | title=MTG annual Report 2006 | pages=page 39] The fourth TV1000 to launch in Eastern Europe is TV1000 Poland, launched in early 2007 on the Cyfrowy Polsat platform.

In early 2008, the first high-defintion channel from TV1000 was launched. It was called TV1000 HD and is a simulcast of the main TV1000 channel for the Nordic countries. In April 2008, a premium movie channel for the Baltic states called TV1000 Premium was launched.

TV1000 was previously transmitted using D2-MAC and encrypted with the EuroCrypt encryption system. It was available originally via the Astra 1A satellite, and later via the Intelsat 707 satellite (where TV1000 Cinema was also available via the co-located Thor satellite). It was largely descrambled throughout Europe with pirate cards, especially popular in the UK for its English language films and late-night hardcore pornography. Today, the Scandinavian version of TV1000 is transmitted digitally and encrypted in the VideoGuard system (after previously using the Viaccess system that was widely hacked) within the Viasat package on the Sirius 3 satellite.
