ČT2 (ČT Dva, Česká televize 2, "Dvojka") is Czech public television channel, operated by Česká televize. ČT2 broadcasts documentaries and nature-oriented shows. This channel also frequently shows foreign films in the original versions with Czech subtitles, including many English-language movies. It also features some of the important sports events (i.e. Olympic Games, FIFA World Cup or UEFA European Football Championship).

History[edit]

ČST2 launched on 10 May 1970 and was broadcast throughout Czechoslovakia in 1970. In 1973 the channel changed from black-and-white to colour.

Following the full implementation of federalism in Czechoslovakia after the Velvet Revolution, the second channel was split into two "national" channels (1990) and began broadcasting as the ČTV in Czechia and as the S1 in Slovakia.

On 1 January 1993, after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, ČTV changed its name to ČT2, now the second channel of the new Česká televize (Czech Television).
