History[edit]

Logo used from launch to December 2010

In October 2005, TVA Group was granted approval by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a television channel called Nostalgie, described as "a national, French-language Category 2 specialty programming undertaking devoted to television and movie classics."[1]

The channel was launched on February 9, 2006 as Prise 2.[2]

On August 27, 2012, Groupe TVA launched Prise 2 HD, a HD feed simulcasting the standard definition feed. It is currently available on Videotron, Bell TV and Bell Fibe.
