CBC Television 2 and Télé-2 were proposed second television services to be operated by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)/Société Radio-Canada (SRC).

The CBC-SRC made a formal application to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) in August 1980 for a licence to create a network that would replay programming in English and French (Télé-2).

The CRTC denied the CBC's applications.

The corporation had proposed that CBC-2 would:

  • be non-commercial
  • be a basic, must-carry service
  • be programming from CBC and provincial educational broadcasters
  • feature regional programming broadcast to a national audience
  • feature arts and culture, drama, news
