Where did 1 go?

The odd questions that occur to one in the evening --

Why does television always start with channel 2? Whatever happened to channel 1? It seems quite consistent, whether in broadcast or cable -- the channels always start at 2. Is it just a technical limitation of the 1940's that got fetishized? Probably something like that, but I'm not quite sure where to even look...
