Televicentro (Canal 2) is a nationwide terrestrial television channel from Nicaragua owned by Televicentro de Nicaragua, S.A.

History[edit]

Televicentro de Nicaragua, S.A. was founded in December 1965 by Octavio Sacasa Sarria, first broadcast in March 1966. It was the second television channel in Nicaragua, after Canal 6, owned by the Somoza family. The first color broadcasting took place in 1973.

With the triumph of the Sandinista revolution in July 1979, Canal 2 together with Canal 6, became part of the state owned television monopoly known as Sistema Sandinista de Televisión (SSTV), the Sandinista Television System. Canal 2 returned to its original owners at the end of 1989.

In 1996, Canal 2 became the first Central American TV channel to have an official web site. Canal 2 also broadcasts from channel number 7 in some parts of the country.

The most popular shows are: Noticiero 22-22 (tabloid television), TV Noticias (newscast), Primera Hora (morning show), La Tertulia (variety show), El Clan de la Picardia (cultural show, hosted by Carlos Mejia Godoy), Margarita te voy a contar (talk show), Telenovelas produced mainly in Brazil, Mexico and Colombia and popular American TV shows, such as CSI: Miami, Alias, Stargate Atlantis and JAG.

In 2005, Canal 2 signed an agreement with Canal 33 from Costa Rica to broadcast the evening transmissions of Noticiero 22-22 in that country.

In 2006, Canal 2 started live transmissions to the internet. This transmission include all shows produced in the country.
