VH2 was a sister channel to VH1 in the United Kingdom. It launched in 2003, and slowly became an Indie rock based music channel, aimed primarily at men in the 25-34 demographic. It showed mainly music, though some documentaries were shown based around the artists VH2 played.
It closed at 6am on 1 August 2006 to make way for MTV Flux due to bandwidth space. During VH2's final days, it basically showed music videos and old MTV idents from the 1980s and the 1990s. MTV Networks stated that because the main source of income for the channel, ringtone advertising, was slowing down, the channel had to close.
