MTV2 Pop was a German music channel. It launched on 1 May 2001, taking over the transponder left by the analogue service of MTV UK and Ireland when it closed down. It replaced VH1 Germany. The channel mainly focused on Europop and eurodance music (uplifting house/Uplifting trance, Vocal Trance, Pumping House, Progressive Trance).

It closed on 11 September 2005, being replaced by Nickelodeon Germany. MTV2Pop broadcast some anime-series like InuYasha, Lupin III, Golden Boy, Cowboy Bebop and The Vision of Escaflowne.

When the UK version of TMF was hastily launched in October 2002, the channel used MTV2 Pop's presentation graphics, with the identifications re-badged to contain the TMF logo. These graphics were used until Summer 2005.
