History[edit]

Initially launched as a spin-off channel to ETC, ETC 2nd Avenue started as a test broadcast on December 15, 2005, and had its full launch in 2006. The channel was later renamed to 2nd Avenue on January 17, 2007.

In 2008, as part of its parent company's blocktime agreements with multiple terrestrial channels, 2nd Avenue made its debut on RJTV stations nationwide. RJTV's RJ Sunday Jam and Thank God, It's RJ were retained and integrated to 2nd Avenue's programming.[1]

As part of Solar Entertainment Corporation's shakeup, 2nd Avenue's logo was all orange and black.
